Crowdfunding Spotlight: ‘Vengeur’ Feature Film
This article was submitted to Project-Nerd by filmmaker Dustin Hawkins.
People say that we only have one life… but what if they are wrong? What if justice could bend the rules of mortality for a soul who has been so unforgivably wronged, that they deserve another chance. Another chance to make things right. Brunhilda of Austrasia just might be getting that chance.
Vengeur, is a thrilling journey through time that takes real historical events from the dark ages, renaissance era, wild west, the prohibition times and integrates them into our story about a single character out to avenge her fallen loved ones! We wish to make an iconic film that utilizes some key moments in history. Artists, film students and professionals are giving their time and money already to help make this film but we need your help to make this a true Hollywood worthy piece of art!
Our last indie film produced was an adaptation of Richard Connell’s book, The Most Dangerous Game. Now our short film is being played in schools all over the US. With this production we wanted to make something original and organic that takes a lot of compelling moments in time and construct them into a compelling narrative tale.
Funds raised will be used for a jousting team, insurance, renting equipment, building sets, makeup, wardrobe, prop building, licensing, traveling to several different states for filming, feeding cast and crew, post-production, marketing and so much more.
We want this project to be high quality and enter into film festivals and distribution. For this we need to hire the best editors and effects artists for putting together the final product.
This is a local Missouri conceived production but we are filming in other places as well such as Denver, Colorado, Wichita, Kansas, Chicago, Illinois, Independence, Missouri, St. Louis, Missouri, Columbia, Missouri, and several others!

“I love so many different time periods and wanted to create something that would make sense to have them all in one film. With two characters who had different paths yet because one interfered with the other it turned into a vendetta that seemed to take multiple lives to finish.”
