The guys at Alterna Comics have launched a Kickstarter appeal to help promote a short film adaptation of Jeff McComsey’s graphic novel series American Terror: Confession of a Human Smart Bomb
Victor Shepard, now an old man at the end of his life, lives in obscurity under a false Identity. Alone he counts the days before he draws his last. The Rooster the last of his comrades has passed, en route to his funeral, he is visited by the ghosts of his past, his memories of a life long gone. We then learn of his beginnings, before he became the father of a revolution that would forever alter the world.
The team have finished the film, and are looking for a mere $5,000 to put towards final production touches and promotion. Directed by Eric Ramos, the short film stars Gerald Keyzer, Kenneth Simmons (Kick Ass, Side Effects), and Daniel Berkey (Boardwalk Empire, The Men Who Built America).
