Fronts. - The Basics
Along with co-producer and co-writer Jake Morrison, he created GIED Productions, which has released an edgy video blog drama, Fronts, about a religious civil war in the U.S. The plot of Fronts, which launched its first season last year, centers on a coalition of southern states – Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma – that secedes from the United States to form The Holy Texas Republic (HTR).
An imminent civil war ensues and after a year of fighting, Russia enters the fray, destroying New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Seattle.
In Fronts, two good friends, Connor Welles and James Farraby, try to stay in touch, despite living on opposite geographical ends of the war. Season 2 is about to begin and the story follows Farraby as he tries to get his daughter safely across the country. At the same time, Welles investigates a large HTR troop movement in Oklahoma.
“Our goal with this series is to bring about discussion about religious-atheist relations, political polarization and the ethics and philosophies of war,” explained Little.
He is looking to improve the video blog’s second season by expanding production, including a wider cast, better sets and higher-quality audio. “We hope to produce a better video and broaden our audience,” Little said.
Jake Morrison is in Seattle where he will be directing half the series. Both partners are going to watch episodes and go back and between Washington and Oklahoma.
This is going involve about $19,000 of funding for cameras, microphones, recorders, lights, costumes, compensation for actors and staff, transportation, and promotion. To generate this capital, Little has launched an Indiegogo campaign, which can be viewed at the Indiegogo site.
Donations of any amount are welcome. For a $30 contribution, backers will receive a Fronts T-shirt. For $75, you can get a full copy of the series script. A $100 donation fetches a DVD of the second season.
Other perks are also available for contributors, such as army combat jackets and a signed posters. All perks are American made, and support small independent businesses in the area.
The series take an intriguing look at religion, atheism and politics. “We’re hoping to open some eyes about what’s going on in this country and around the world,” said Little. “If you look at history, almost every war occurred because of religious differences. Could it happen in America?”
