'FREEDOM DEAL: The Story of Lucky' is a historical dramatic movie set in 1970 Cambodia as the US-Vietnam conflict expands across the border during Nixon's 'Cambodia Incursion'.  While protests raged across the USA, US and Army of South Vietnam forces entered Cambodia to locate and destroy communist Vietnamese army sanctuaries.  Strikingly, this first-ever dramatization of a pivotal part of Western-Asian history is told from a local Asian point of view.

6/12/12 Update from the 'Freedom Deal' Movie Project in Cambodia

Hello From Camerado and the 'FREEDOM DEAL' Film Team in Cambodia - only  1 Day+ Left  (*see below)
 

"I’m a big fan of (Freedom Deal writer-director) Jason Rosette 
and also of this project" 
Judy Henry, Producer, Gold'n Hen Prods. Hollywood, CA - and Freedom Deal contributor

"Looking for a good indie
film to support? Read about this one" -
Linda
Nelson, Nelson-Madison Films & Indie Rights, Contributor to 'Freedom Deal'

UPDATED 6/12/12: Please note the following ongoing updates about our movie and media making activities in Southeast Asia, including the Countdown to our Fundraising Goal for 'Freedom Deal' on IndieGogo


>The Washington Post reports on the Presidency of Nixon 40 years after Watergate - "Nixon was far worse than we thought": offering insights on the Watergate scandal and an era of covert executive behavior extending all the way back to the 'Freedom Deal' period in Cambodia, including the secretly ordered 1970 'Cambodian Incursion' which was protested so tragically at Kent State University.

> New global supporters of the 'Freedom Deal' project over the past days include Chicago based lawyer Arnold Toole, an anonymous supporter who contributed $500; author Chris Thrall in Hong Kong; movie producer Judy Henry in Hollywood, CA; and others rolling in during the home stretch of our crowd funding component.

> Asians On Film  presents a video interview with 'Freedom Deal' filmmaker, writer, and co-producer Jason Rosette, who discusses the background of the project, the story, and its unique US-Asian (Cambodian)
perspective. Direct link to the interview HERE.

Screen testing talent in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
> We have a great write up in The Independent film journal about the
'Freedom Deal' feature film effort, with a discussion of the incredible
challenges of producing a pioneering film like this in the developing country environment of Cambodia.

>We've compiled a free ebook about the making of 'Freedom Deal' here in Cambodia, as a case study at producing indie films in a global/developing context; Get the  Viewer and Download Link HERE




> Only 1 Day+ to reach our fundraising target for this stage of 'Freedom
Deal'



If you haven't had an opportunity to contribute to 'Freedom Deal' yet, please support our independent filmmaking effort here in CambodiaYour participation now is a vital link to the production of the full-length feature film, and will never be forgotten!

We're working on the cutting edge of global cinema here in Cambodia - without
rebates, incentives, grants, or government funding,
making the first ever
dramatic film about a largely overlooked part of the US-Vietnam conflict, taking place during Nixon's 1970 'Cambodian Incursion'.


This was a secretly launched military operation that many Americans and other Westerners associate with the killing of unarmed students at Kent State and Jackson State universities - students who were protesting this expansion of the war into Cambodia. 

But the Cambodian side of this chapter in US-Asian history has never been told...until now:

Princess Soma Norodom of Cambodia Encourages Support for the 'Freedom Deal' Movie Project in Her Country


Cambodian Princess Soma Norodom, working with the 'Freedom Deal' movie production effort in Cambodia as a local PR & Outreach Liaison, makes the following statement: 

"With the support of the international media and filmmaking community, the story told in 'Freedom Deal', about an unexplored part of US-Cambodian history during the Indochina conflict, can finally be told from a Cambodian perspective."

"By training and using local cast and crew, alongside Western and other developed world professionals, Camerado SE Asia also seeks to help revitalize the re-emerging Cambodian film production industry following its destruction during the Khmer Rouge regime. I am honored to be involved with the movie, 'Freedom Deal!'".  (See Soma's new column at the Phnom Penh Post HERE)

FREEDOM DEAL Local Casting Session #3 in Phnom Penh, 5/26/12




Met with more talent today, for Camerado's FREEDOM DEAL feature effort here in Phnom Penh Cambodia; this was local casting session #3.


We're currently running Cambodia's first-ever crowd funding campaign for a feature film to help raise funds to shoot a section of the full length movie; contribute and participate in our effort on IndieGogo at: http://www.indiegogo.com/freedomdeal-vietnam-war-cambodia-part-1


In particular (and most challenging to find) we met with four contenders for the role of 'Nuon' , the musician/refugee who plays a Cambodian instrument called the Tro Khmer.






In the 'Freedom Deal' story, Nuon and the young protagonist, Samnang ('Lucky') make their way on foot to the safety of the provincial capital as the civil war expands into Cambodia.




'Freedom Deal' takes place during the 1970 US-ARVN 'Cambodian Incursion', during which Nixon sought to locate and destroy NVA & Viet Cong sanctuaries inside the Cambodian border.






This Cambodian incursion led to widespread protests back in the US, including those at Kent State and Jackson State Universities, which led the shooting deaths of unarmed students protesting the perceived expansion of the war.









'Freedom Deal' tells this story uniquely from the Cambodian perspective, with the input of a few US GI characters - including 'redneck philosopher', Private Douglas "Shaky" Griffith. (Western roles to be cast later, pending completion of this first component)
