Amazing quality for a $10000 budget!
15 March 2007 | by matowakitaSee all my reviews

Jeshua and company did an amazing job of producing a historical mini-epic on a shoe-string budget.

Very film-like look from DV.

Some of the actors are inexperienced, but carry their roles well. Andy Shaffner is particularly impressive, with a strong, natural presence.

The battle scenes shot in Utah did come out looking pretty close to Jolly Old. I wouldn't have thought a cottonwood forest in Ogden, UT could look as European as it does.

I have the DVD and the ending of the final cut is very effective and touching.

I have it from a very reliable source that a much higher budget version of the film is in the works and will be shot both in England and Utah.

Outstanding!
