Corey Allred, Axel Ahrens, Luke Frazier, and Mark Frazier are four aspiring filmmakers and recent film school graduates who have come together through a shared passion of storytelling.

Recent graduates from Sacramento State University with degrees in film production, they are now in the process of making a Civil War short film. It is about a Confederate soldier sketch artist who meets his long lost twin brother on the opposite side of the war.  They are trying to garner support from the Civil War community because they believe a majority of the community would love to help other Civil War enthusiasts. The aspiring filmmakers have a lot of resources at their disposal such as land, horses, and they know many reenactors from Mississippi.
