Produced in Association with Old Tucson Studios (Tombstone, The Quick and the Dead, 3:10 to Yuma, Magnificent Seven) and has won numerous awards including Best Western Feature Film, Best Actress (Danny Brown), Best Visual Effects, Best Actor Nomination (Alexander Harris) and Best Cinematography Nomination.
The American West was a really adventurous melting pot of diversity. People were coming from all over the world in search of fame, fortune, or a new beginning and then colliding in unexpected ways. Sometimes beautiful. Sometimes violent. It's such an amazing period to tell stories. It's bold. It's brash. It's got a lot of heart. You've never seen a Western like this before.
