MDG Films Presents “Hell Bent For Victory”
MDG Films is pleased to announce the release of Hell Bent For Victory, a feature length documentary showcasing the epic journey of the Casper, Wyoming Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps as they rose to world finalist status for the first time in twenty three years. The historic event took place last summer at the annual Drum Corps International World Championships held in Indianapolis, Indiana.
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, by making it to DCI’s semi finals status 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. The story of the film represents the truly remarkable spirit of these American teens as they travel through fifteen states, fighting to scratch a mark in history. Their journey was regarded as the Cinderella story of 2009. MDG Films was there to document this ride in real time!
When: May 15th, 2010
How much: $20.00
