About this project
If the world around you fell apart...
would you and your family be able to: Properly & Safely Purify Water, Find or Grow Your Own Food, Protect and Defend Your Property Against Gangs, Relocate Quickly and Safely in the Event of an Emergency, How to Hide Your Preps so They Won't be Found, Know How to Deal With Major Medical Issues Without Doctors, Build Fire Without Matches, Build Shelter When There is None, How to Barter and Negotiate With Others, How to Re-Build Society After a Collapse and much more!
These issues are common-place in any disaster situation, such as the recent; Fukushima Nuclear Accident, Hurricanes: Katrina, Andrew, Irene, Ivan, Ike and others, Earthquakes in Haiti, Blizzards in the Northeast, Droughts, Tornadoes Like the one in Joplin Missouri, the Tsunami in Indonesia and a Financial Collapse among others.
Both natural and man-made disasters have been on the rise plus the global financial crisis has been setting the stage for civil unrest here in the united states and the real chance that our economy will collapse entirely!
We are making a movie about Preppers and the truth behind the preparedness movement. And we need your help...
Preppers and survivalists have been mis-labeled as crazy, conspiracy theorists on TV and in the media, obscuring the message of living a prepared life. Self-Reliance is a term that describes a lifestyle and a state of mind that embodies real freedom.
The next disaster will happen whether you are prepared or not, but right now you have the chance to be part of a global survival community. Learn what disasters are just around the corner and how these people are preparing to survive come what may.
The prepper mindset has been growing in popularity and for good reason.
Our plan is to reach over 1 million people with the viral distribution of this film. Disasters and troubled times are ahead for all of us, because we will all experience at least one major crisis in our lifetime.
I'm not talking about a crisis like losing your cell phone or getting a speeding ticket, but things that are life-changing... life-threatening, like a power grid failure for a year or more, or losing your only home in a major disaster. It could also be having your entire savings turned to ash in an instant during a collapse of the currency!
We are not immune to disasters, in fact we are directly in the path of one that will change life as we know it and this group of people know how to prepare for it.
We Need Your Help!
We've partnered with documentary film director William Lewis from William Lewis Films to help us bring our film into reality.
Lewis has produced many wide spread and telling documentary films such as: Camp Fema I & II, Washington: You're Fired, Don't Tread on Me, Blood of Patriots, Beyond Treason, 911:Ripple Effect, One Nation Under Siege and Peddling Influence to name a few.
The idea that prompted us to take on this important project was simply that so many people are uninformed. They are being brainwashed by the media that everything will be alright when clearly things are getting worse.
People receive information in many ways, the most popular of which is through visual media. People rarely take the time to simply read a book these days as most people's lives are filled with fears of losing their homes, jobs and security. They don't have time to become pro-active in preparing. We've become a "reactive" society that are marketed cures for ailments once symptoms have become too much to ignor.
The Preparedness mindset is not just for an impending disaster, but something we can use in our daily lives to bring peace and security. It ius truly a rewarding lifestyle...
The Pursuit of Happiness!
If we were indeed endowed with this unalienable right, then why is it so hard to achieve? What is missing in our lives that keeps us from reaching a state of equilibrium that will allow us to evolve and grow, to giveback and enjoy the fruits of our labor...?
We believe that preppers and the lifestyle they live may hold the key!
Fear is the direct byproduct of not being prepared to face the unknown. It's true that we've lost the knowledge to survive through avoiding the adversity that our grand parents and great-grandparents did during their time.
A Prepared Society is a Safe Society!
With all the debate about safety and security these days, is the answer staring us in the face?
If those around you were prepared without fear to go without city water and store bought food for months, would there be angry mobs at your door looking to take what's yours?
If more people knew how to rebuild a society built on barter and trade, would we be so dependent on our jobs and a fiat currency to sustain us?
If communities were closer and knew how to work together, would we not live a happier, more free lifestyle?
The truth to all these questions lie in our history. It is part of the legacy we've been left to protect and one that we need to re-discover. And through this Kickstarter project to produce our DVD, we hoe to find it.
Some people may read this KickStarter project and the reasons for our film and ignore the message because they believe that no matter what happens their "Government" will take care of them.
They believe that because they paid their taxes, everything will be ok... and when they need help, someone will be there to give it. Those who rely on others to fix their problems, they are always the first to go!
They would have had a chance to help us this information out, but failed to support this important work.
You have the chance to not only help us by pledging your support of our project, but you can help bring a positive message of the tenacity of humanity to survive.
We Can Do This Together!
There is a brighter side to survival, in that, too many people in this world play the "blame game". They believe that the world owes them.
They have an entitlement complex that has been given to them by the media and governments in order to make them a slave to the system. It's something that we can change if enough people would embrace the prepared lifestyle.
By creating a more "Self-Reliant" society, we can fix these issues that are eroding our communities like a cancer. Self-Reliance crosses political, religious, racial, social, geographic boundaries. It can unite the human race to move past our differences and grow to fulfill our potential!
So you see this project is not just about making a film... it's about changing the world as we know it, before it changes all of us!
How We Will Use Your Pledge...
We need your support to complete this project before the end of the summer. We have planned a 3 month production schedule which will include, filming, editing, traveling and researching the information delivered in our final production. Our budget is $15,000 for this project to produce the highest quality project possible. Luckily, we have much of what we need in gear already, except for a few necessary and key components.
We still need to acquire a second HD video camera to give our production an updated HD quality look. This will enable us to deliver better quality detail in the filming. We also need to acquire a professional battery operated microphone system, since we'll be going places that will not have power to get footage and training for the DVD.
And lastly, the rest of our budget will go to traveling to get the interviews and training from experts that have been living and teaching this Self-Reliant lifestyle to others for years.
It's not an easy thing to produce an educational documentary of this magnitude, but you can help.
In addition to our pledge rewards, we have created a few awesome crowd-funding bonuses if you can help us reach past our budget and go even bigger with this project.
Crowd Funding Bonuses
If we reach $50,000 - For everyone who pledges $50 or more, we will produce not just one, but a 2 DVD set containing even more relf-reliant training.
If we reach $75,000 - For everyone who pledges $50 or more, we will again expand the production to a 3 DVD set of vital and critical training.
If we reach $100,000 - For everyone who pledges $100 or more, we will create a special edition printed manual to accompany the 3 DVDs which will provide transcriptions, instructions and diagrams that you can use to perfect your preparedness plan.
If we reach $150,000 - For everyone who pledges $100 or more, a special signed director's cut of the DVD with behind the scenes extras and bonus footage.
If we reach $200,000 - For everyone who pledges any amount, we will host a live event around the official release where you will get the chance to meet many of the people in the film and participate in instructional preparedness classes. Every pledge will get one free ticket to this event.
If we reach $300,000 - Everyone who pledges any amount will get two free ticket to the live survival event.

Risks and challenges
As the publisher of "Survivalist Magazine", we produce tens of thousands of magazine issues, so you can rest assured that if you back our project and hlp us reach our goals... it will happen!
Of course as Preppers, we realize that anything can go wrong so we've prepared on our end to complete this project no matter what even if we have to go...low budget! Since Kickstarter is an "all or nothing" platform, we must hit our minimum goal to be funded. I believe we can do this with the support of those who believe as we do...
The only risk or challenge that we may face after successful funding is if the grid or society collapses between now and the official release in September.
This is why we need your support now so that we can finish this critical project and get it into as many hands as possible before it's too late.
