"The Rogues: Dawn of the Black Sun" Film

THE ROGUES : DAWN OF THE BLACK SUN 







Welcome, adventurers!  We're in need of some support, and we figured why not go directly to the source: YOU!

Are you a fan of Indiana Jones? Jumanji? Uncharted? Tomb Raider? Then you're gonna LOVE our new adventure film, The Rogues !



WHAT'S THE MOVIE ABOUT?

Smugglers and scholars are forced to team up to stop the deadly neo-nazi cult The Black Sun from obtaining a priceless artifact with a dangerous secret! It'll take more than wits, fists, and guns to obtain The Florentine Diamond, and no one is letting it go without a fight!

Bareknuckle, hard-edged and gritty adventure without the over-produced CGI, we're doing this old-school. We're storyboarding everything, we're planning everything out, we're hoping for the best and expecting the worst.

That's how we're going about making this. No "fix it in post" mentality here, it's all "fix it in PRE", as in "preproduction", which is what we're in right now!

Script? Done. Storyboards? Getting done. Trailer? Done. The rest? Well, that depends on how much we can raise with YOUR help!



WHAT'S THE CASH FOR?

What, you don't trust a few rogues with your coins? Can't say I blame ya! Let's break down what the money goes to:

-PROPS
-CAMERAS
-LIGHTING GEAR
-SOUND EQUIPMENT
-LOCATION FEES
-COSTUMES
-SPECIAL EFFECTS
-VEHICLES (we got some explosions, after all...)
-PAYING PEOPLE!!!!

Look, so far, everyone on board is doing this because we BELIEVE in the project! This is a film we all want to see, and because no one else is making it, WE'RE GOING TO!

By hook or by crook, this will get done. We're not selling out, we're buying in! And you can, too!



WHO ARE WE?

We've assembled an award-winning team both in front of and behind the cameras to bring you this modern-day action/adventure flick. Emmy nominees, international film festival winners, leading men with films up for your viewing pleasure right now on VOD platforms, we've got it all! Except some extra scratch...

A collection of NC and CA based artists that believe hard work and commitment pay off in the end. With a combined 60+ years experience and over 100+ credits on IMDb, we've got the know-how and background to pull this off!

If you're reading this, thank you! Any amount you can offer is GREATLY appreciated! I know that a lot of us are going through rough times right now, and that's why we feel like a bit of escapist entertainment would do us all some good. It isn't even so much about the money, but the knowledge that we've got the support of people like you!




From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Now let's go make one hell of a fun movie!
