1663 Media Arts, LLC presents an Adventurous, Family-Friendly Historical Drama based on the popular Illustrated Children’s Book “George Washington’s Army And Me” by renowned Author and Illustrator Michael Dooling!
Description: An impossible adventure begins when a young boy sneaks out of George Washington’s encampment to find his father, a soldier who does not return from the Battle of Monmouth. Will the game of draughts (checkers) save the young boy’s life and get him home?
Producer Andrea M Clarke shares “It’s one of those stories that cannot be left on the shelf. “Elijah and George” is part love story and part American History; it has action, adventure, drama, some humorous moments and a battle scene! And what I especially love is that the story is uniting, bringing the audience into the characters struggles and triumphs in what they can and do endure in the name of family, freedom and home.”
What do we need? Your financial support to film a Proof of Concept Movie Trailer. The POC Trailer Budget is $19K. Your tax-deductible contribution through our Network for Good Campaign shows your support of a timely, family-friendly historical drama steeped in family, freedom and home and that honors those who sacrificed so much so that we may be free today.
Date of POC Shoot: 12/7/2019 Where: Berkeley Plantation, Charles City, VA.
A Proof of Concept is more like a short film developed on a very limited budget that’s created to attract financial backers, studios and well known guest stars by showing them what our production team can professionally accomplish.
We will film two scenes for the Proof of Concept Trailer; the farmhouse scene that sets the stage for Elijah’s Journey, and Elijah’s first “Run-In” with General George Washington in the Army Encampment.
