Following stunning allegations that the world’s most famous and trusted TV survival host fakes his entire show, Tex Montana strives to overcome the rumors by documenting 30 days of solo survival in the remote wilderness.
Sound intriguing? That’s the plot of Tex Montana Will Survive!, the newest film from co-directors Jeremy Gardner and Christian Stella (who made 2012’s zombie thriller The Battery). Fed up with the traditional waiting period of feature film distribution, the filmmakers finished their movie and embarked on an unusual release method. They decided that if they could raise enough money through crowdfunding, they’d give the film away on the Internet for free under a Creative Commons license. They met their goal of $50,000 in March, and the full film will live online forever.
