"Nothing's off limits."
That's a quote from one of the actors in Range 15, but it's also the way the creators of the film live their lives.
And before you start getting all teary-eyed over it, know that it's also the attitude they bring to their dark, effed up, and glorious comedic projects.
For those who haven't seen "Range 15" (it's for sale as a digital download at Amazon.com), it's about some military buddies who have a wild party and find themselves tossed into the drunk tank. They wake up to the realization that the zombie apocalypse is in full swing.
Think of what follows as a threesome between "Team America," "Zombieland," and "The Hangover."

According to a report by the Military Times, the documentary made its debut on June 30, 2017. The video, dubbed Not a War Story, details the making of the movie, which was filmed in 13 days — a balls crazy pace. The 80 vets who made the film, some of them amputees, had very little (if any) experience shooting feature films, but they didn't let that stop them.
In the trailer, William Shatner, who plays an attorney in the film, strikes a very poignant tone as he recognizes the sacrifices many of these veterans have made. "You're the fellows who altered your life to do the job," he says.
Oh, and good news for Range 15 fans: Military Times mentioned that a sequel is reportedly in the works.
In the meantime, check out the trailer for Not a War Story and check out the film on iTunes Nov. 7, 2017.
