Here’s the deal: We have a real Hollywood producer – who is a Patriot and prepper (!) – and we’re going to raise the money to make the first of hopefully three 299 Days movies. Movie One will be based on Book One and Book Two. You can listen all about it on this interview of me on the Survival Podcast (which, by the way, is the best interview I’ve ever done.)
We know Hollywood is full of left-wing lunatics so we’re not counting on them to make this movie. Instead, we – the Patriot and prepper community – are going to do it ourselves. We’re self-reliant; doing things ourselves is what we do. A movie is no exception.
We will raise the money in two stages: (1) pre-sales of DVDs and Blu-Rays, and (2) a Kickstarter campaign for the remainder. (Here is background on how Kickstarter works.) No one has to pay a dime unless we meet our funding goal and can then make the movie. Here are the details:
The first stage is from March 20 to April 1 when we will pre-sell DVDs and blu-rays of the movie. You can pledge to buy them here. We are not collecting your credit card numbers now; you are merely pledging to buy DVDs and blu-rays. If we don’t meet the funding goal We’re doing pre-sales to raise as much money as we can this way so we can ask for less in a Kickstarter campaign. If we don’t meet your Kickstarter funding goal then we don’t get the Kickstarter money, so we want the Kickstarter goal to be as low as possible. So please pre-order as many DVDs and Blu-Rays as you can – they make great presents to hand out to people to described why they should be a prepper. The more you order, the better the chance of the moving being made.
