An action-packed fantasy film featuring a Marine battling an army of bloodthirsty orcs, a sinister witch and their massive dragon.

Orc Wars is the next feature film by Arrowstorm Entertainment, a worldwide leader in fantasy entertainment (seriously - we're tied with Peter Jackson as this is our FOURTH feature with orcs in it!).

We need your help raising finishing funds to complete the visual effects on this awesome movie.

NEW TRAILER VFX:

AN APPEAL FROM OUR ACTORS:

We wanted to do something different this time, and bring everyone's favorite villains into OUR world, and not just as cannon fodder (though there is a LOT of that going on...) - we wanted thinking, talking orc characters who the audience could believe in, and even LIKE.

As with all our past Kickstarter efforts, this film has already been shot and edited, and we are well into post-production. Our trailer is actual footage from the film, so you can get a good gauge of the quality, and how close we are to fulfilling our vision.

Looking to leave the world behind, a Marine (John Norton) buys a ranch in the remote American West, where he encounters a strange series of trespassers, including a beautiful elf princess (Aleya) and a Native American mystic (Whitefeather). But when orcs invade his property, John must give up his isolation to become a hero, before the orcs sacrifice his new charges and unleash a dark magic on our world.

Orc Wars is an action-packed adventure featuring genuine orc characters with purpose and feelings - and then we blow them all up with a brutal array of modern weaponry... it's a unique and fun journey unlike anything you've ever seen before. Seriously. You've got to see this film.

From Montgomery, AL, Rusty gained international recognition when he signed a two-year exclusive deal as the official Structure underwear model and spokesman, making guest appearances on such shows as Extra, E News, Access Hollywood and The View.  

Rusty made the transition from modeling to acting with a variety of featured film roles including Dodgeball and Resident Evil: Extinction. He also stars in the features Last Ounce of Courage, To Have and To Hold and Writers alongside Oscar-winners, Jennifer Connelly and Greg Kinnear.

European-born actress Masiela Lusha portrayed Carmen Lopez for five seasons as George Lopez's daughter on the ABC series, The George Lopez Show. Raised in Tirana, Budapest, Hungary; and Vienna, Austria, she settled in Michigan at the age of seven; English is her fourth language.

Masiela has starred in many feature films including Sony Picture's Blood the Last Vampire, where she portrayed a demon vampire, Pathe's Time of the Comet, in which she starred as Saint Agnes, and Muertas in which she plays the determined and sensitive lead, Aracelli. She is also an accomplished writer, and a published author and poet.

A graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Wesley made his feature film debut as the Red Guard opposite Dwayne Johnson in 1992's The Scorpion King. He is a native of The Philippines, where as a boy he honed his martial arts skills in combat weaponry under the tutelage of his grandfather Master Leon. He holds a 2nd undergrad degree in Art from Spring Arbor University in Michigan.

Wesley has appeared in numerous Network TV shows, including Law & Order, Chuck and The Unit. He's also recurred in the Emmy-winning daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.

A native of Melbourne, Florida, Isaac grew up in a military family. He graduated from Bitburg American High School in Bitburg, Germany but eventually ended up back in Florida where he attended Florida A & M University, and graduated from University of Central Florida.

Best known in film as the imposing Bo'sun from Pirates of the Caribbean, Isaac is one of the most prolific actors and voice-over artists in the business. You will recognize his booming bass voice in many of today's iconic video games and animated franchises such as Halo, Transformers, and Streetfighter.

The film is already shot, and we're deep into post-production. But we've still got a bunch more work to do. We went a little overboard on the action and visual effects... it turns out there's about 340 visual effects shots in this film, and we've got to get them all done by 1 May to deliver to our distributor. So, we need to farm a bunch of the work out to other VFX people, and that's going to cost us a bunch more money that we hadn't planned on... so, in order to get this film done in time, we need your help financing some of these shots.

People pledge an amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 30-day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $20,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to finish our film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided :(. If we exceed our $20,000 goal then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even better - so keep pledging! All funds raised are used directly in the finishing of our film.

We're not looking for charity, we're looking for an alternate sales venue - that's why our rewards reflect fair market value. Don't think of it as a donation, think of it as a pre-purchase. If you want to see this film, buy it now through Kickstarter - you'll probably get a better deal from us than from whatever retailer ends up selling it in your country, and you'll help make our film better!

We're a small group of independent filmmakers who love making movies, and have been at it for about a decade. It's our full-time job, and every film we have made has received worldwide distribution. We do pretty much everything ourselves, from conception to financing to production to securing distribution. We love fantasy and science fiction and know there are others out there like us, who we aim to please. Click on a name to see our IMDB profiles:

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Film is a complicated technical exercise, and often unforeseen difficulties arise, causing budget and scheduling overruns - particularly when complex visual effects are involved. That being said, we are an experienced group and have successfully completed and released every film we have started. We have produced several visual effects heavy projects in the past, and see no reason why we shouldn't continue to accomplish our goals.

On the plus side, this film is largely complete. A great deal of the risk in the project has already been mitigated, and we are too far along to turn back and give up. We are seeking funding to complete a visual effects sequence, and have the personnel to pull it off, regardless of complications.
