About this project

 The documentary "Expedition Orange" will explore the affects of those soldiers and individuals exposed to the chemical Agent Orange which was used to kill foliage making it easier for US Troops to see through the dense jungle canopy during the Vietnam War. 

The story will be told through Colt Romberger, the son of a deceased Vietnam Veteran who died from complications from his exposure to Agent Orange. We will follow Colt on his 3,000 mile, coast to coast horseback ride whose purpose is to raise awareness about Vietnam Veterans and others suffering from exposure to this chemical. We will be interviewing doctors and veterans alike to get both the personal and medical aspects to this chemical. We are also hoping to go directly to the source of this exposure which would take this documentary to Vietnam where we will be speaking to local doctors, soldiers and civilians to find out how they were affected by the use of this particular agent. 

Our goal is to educate viewers on the affects of Agent Orange and how it is now being passed down from generation to generation. Being an informational documentary, we need to educated Vietnam Veterans and their families on where they can go to get the help that they need and to know that they are not alone.

All proceeds off the sale of this film will be donated to Expedition Orange, a charitable veterans organization.

To learn more about the Expedition Orange organization, go to expeditionorange.org and join Colt, Kenny and Gus, live on Facebook, every Thursday at 5:30pm PST. 

Check out below what we were able to put together after spending just one day with Colt, Kenny and Gus!

Risks and challenges

The challenges to this project is that it is a travel documentary. Most of the time this project will have to be filmed on the road and mostly in remote locations. We have worked out the logistics to finding and filming Colt, Kenny and Gus wherever they are and wherever they go in the United States. The only real risks to this project will be if we do not receive enough funds to afford following the Expedition Orange company during the entire six month process it will take to ride across the United States. We plan to mitigate this risk by implementing stretch goals if/when the initial funding goal is met.

Be assured that whatever we do end up receiving and filming, no matter how much or how little, we will produce something with the materials that we have in the spirit of raising awareness for this worthy cause.
