We had an amazing morning with some big announcements regarding AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS! First, our recently selected trailer at The Wild Bunch Film Festival has just been announced as a nominee for Best Film Trailer!

Our second big announcement is that the AGS original screenplay by Drew Henriksen has just been selected for competition at this year’s Urban Action Showcase International Action Film Festival!

This year’s event happening Nov. 6-14 will be a virtual experience and you can find out more about it at the link above or on Facebook.
AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS hopes to go into full production in the coming year.
The Wild Bunch Film Festival schedule is out! AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS trailer will screen on Friday, Oct. 2 at 9:09pm! See the full schedule in this link.
Now looking ahead to the future, I am formally asking for your help and support once again for AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. Today, we have launched the crowdfunding campaign on the website Seed & Spark to raise funds for the full-length feature. We have been planning this project for nearly 3 years. But in the midst of planning the full feature film last year, we realized the logistical and financial obstacles in producing an independent western movie in vintage New York and Connecticut restoration parks with period costumes, props, and of course horses. Now we are more determined than ever to pull the trigger on this amazing project this summer.
Seed & Spark will not only allow us to raise funds but also the ability to get specific offers for all production needs including equipment, locations, horses, etc. All that said, I am directly outreaching to YOU for a commitment to join us on the journey and donate to AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS within these next 45 days. If you are unable to commit financially, however, then you also have the opportunity to follow and share the campaign on all social media.
Please support this special project today: https://www.seedandspark.com/fund/american-gunslingers#story
