After several years of hard work and dreaming, our film is coming together beautifully, and we are almost finished!
We need your help with the final edit and postproduction costs.
Funding now is crucial 1) to make sure we don't fail on the final lap and 2) to finish in time to premiere at the best film festivals in the US and internationally. There is a lot of interest in the film. But if we don't hit those deadlines for a major premiere, it hurts us for theaters, broadcast, streaming, and getting it out to the world. Help us to the finish line and a successful premiere! We are so close.
When war correspondents move on to their next conflict, a more personal struggle is just beginning for those left behind. Poverty, PTSD, and political corruption continue to stifle recovery nearly 20 years after the brutal civil war in Bosnia Herzegovina. Luckily for some in the small mountain town of Livno, an unorthodox leader has emerged, giving struggling veterans and their community an unlikely path to healing.
THE MOTORCYCLE CLUB
A paramilitary leader at the young age of 20, Lija led the successful defense of the town while neighbors fell to the invading forces. Today, he heads the Wolves, a motorcycle club that resembles the stereotype in rough image only. Under his leadership, this wild crew has become a positive force for good with a self-defined humanitarian focus.
THE WILD HORSES
One mission, captures their spirit more than any other. In the mountains where they once fought, they now defend a herd of wild horses that society has similarly deemed expendable. A harsh environment, poachers, and urbanization continually threaten the herd. Stirred by their strength, the Wolves are determined to control their own fate and finally emerge from the shadows of war.
AMONG WOLVES is so close to being in theaters…the initial generous round of funding in 2013 paid for the majority of the ridiculous footage and access that makes up the film. Now it’s time to finish it… the final lap.
Though most of the team has been working free for years, happily, but we need to pay the people that get it ready for the big screen. That means post-production, color correction, sound, etc. It’s not cheap, but with your help we can make this the gorgeous, immersive, and cinematic film we’ve always wanted to show the world.
If you can't contribute financially, please spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, your blog. Every little bit helps, and we will be forever grateful.
STRETCH GOAL You might notice that our cost breakdown is $6225 more than our goal. Well, we have been infinitely lucky to have many people volunteering their time to get this thing made. And we would like to pay them something. That is the extra $6225… the rest is just all bare, naked cost of getting it onscreen. We will also have some pretty amazing stuff available for anyone that helps us get there.
We'll keep adding pic's when we can so check back soon.

STILLS FROM THE FILM
Risks and challenges
We have with the generous help of friends, family, and fans of the story overcome most of the challenges. Thank you, and it wasn’t easy. The rest should be back, but it’s important not to take it for granted… The film is done shooting. It’s mostly edited. The only thing that’s sloopy is color and sound. It’s so close to our vision. These are essential parts, though, for getting into festivals (where we then find the reviews, buzz, and distribution we need to make sure that everyone who wants to see this can). The film is almost ready. It’s time for the polish.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
