Hell Bent For Victory On Wyoming PBS
MDG Films is pleased to announce that Hell Bent For Victory, a feature length documentary showcasing the epic journey of the 2009 Casper, Wyoming Troopers Drum and Bugle will air statewide on Wyoming PBS on Thursday, May 13th at 7:00pm.
The Troopers have long been credited as the marching organization that revolutionized the drum corps and marching band activities in the 1960’s and 70’s. In fact, the 1965 Wyoming State Legislature designated them as “Wyoming’s Musical Ambassadors.” Since given that title, the corps has performed before six United States Presidents and countless dignitaries throughout it’s long history.
In 2006, after several years of financial difficulties and competitive malice, the corps corps shut down to re-organize it’s structure. They returned to competition in 2007, made history in 2008, making it to DCI’s semi finals for the first time since 1995, and in 2009 they returned to finals for the first time since 1986.
The film, produced by corps alumni, Michael D. Gough and Dieter Wiselogel is set for International DVD release on May 15th on the movie’s website, www.hellbentforvictory.com.
What: Hell Bent For Victory broadcasting statewide on Wyoming PBS.
When: Thursday, May 13th at 7:00pm Mtn
