The Thunder Road Kickstarter launched on July 31st! Here is the link: X
Halfway through the month of May, rumours about a future Kickstarter were starting to spread in the Dallas, Grayhm, and Bewley fandom. On June 9th, the Astoria boys (Matt Dallas, Steven Grayhm, and Charlie Bewley created the production company Astoria Entertainment) finally gave in and left their supporters with this message, “Word has slowly leaked onto the internet of our exciting news. An official announcement with full details will be made soon!”
With tremendous excitement and eager anticipation, soon has been turned into now! The campaign is scheduled to launch during the 3rd week of July 2013 in support of their film Thunder Road!
Their Facebook page will slowly be transitioning from Into The Heart Of America: A Soldier’s Story (the research & development aspect of their project) to Thunder Road: Kickstarter.com Campaign July/August 2013.
*** Please note the project has not yet launched on Kickstarter.com so you will not find it there yet. They will post the exact day early next week before the official launch date. ***
From their Facebook page: “Thunder Road is the story of returning US soldier Calvin Cole (played by Steven Grayhm) who we meet in present day Detroit as a troubled veteran who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury from multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Thunder Road puts the audience in the driver’s seat of what it’s like to be in a combat zone. All of the action sequences are based on real military operations from soldiers accounts who were right there on the ground, or, in some cases, in the air. And to understand the psychological repercussions of war, our audience needs to see the cause and effect. Ultimately it’s a story about a guy who’s trying to get his life back, the life that he left before he was deployed. But he never will…and the question is, can he adapt?”
