A new film in the Spaghetti Western vein is soon to be in production. It stars Spaghetti Western veterans Dan van Husen and Brett Halsey. The film is allowing anyone to become a part of it. You can support the film by simply making a donation on it's Kickstarter page. Great prizes are being offered for contributing. If you always wanted a film credit, now is your chance.

I don't understand what will happen if the amount of money needed for this isn't raised in given time?

It's all or nothing. If the amount of money needed isn't raised in the given amount of time, the project won't be funded. If you donate, you will only be charged if funding is successful.

The title sounds like one Howard could have used for a Conan adventure.

I wish you guys luck, needless to say. My opinion is that you should have done more promotion before starting this in all-or-nothing mode. If 2.500 bucks is all you need, for example starting at a place like Facebook would have given you the much needed tail wind. (No, in case you were wondering, I'm not in any way associated with them. Wink)

A 2.500 bucks SW is the best they could come up with in order to canalize their views on the issue?

The film is not anti-abortion propaganda. You haven't even read the script.

I don't have the script to send you (contrary to what you may think, I'm not the director or even the writer), but check this out:

It all got deleted on Imdb, lol, the jist of it was, (a poster named Paycal posted) that an aging gunfighter trains a young disciple to kill a meek brothel owner who performs abortions on his women. It sounds like a moronic juxtaposition of anti abortion propaganda and ridiculous storyline to me,  why would you need a trained gunfighter to kill a "meek" brothel owner.  

In reality, from the histories of brothels that I read the children born of prostitutes basically were reared to become prostitutes, so the guy would be aborting his future stock in trade, in fact the age of consent in New York State up until 1896 was 10.

Bahhhh!

I don't recall all the deleted comments, so I can't re-post them. However, the screenwriter himself has said to me that the film is not anti-abortion at all (it just happens to be about one isolated incident involving abortions). He said he is not interested in "message films". Another person who has read the script also commented on how he never would have expected people to infer such a message (based on the script, not the Kickstarter summary of course).

I have a part in this.
I also did some stunts and second unit directing.
There's a producer credit in there as well...

Here's the trailer after a short article.

(catch me in the trailer. I pop up quite a bit).
