Okay, really don't know where to put this, but civil unrest may work. Basically my friend and I are working on a mini series/film that would follow
fighters in a (not so distant) future US civil war. We have been brainstorming very hard. The series will be mostlt character and politically focused
with some light fighting (think generation kill). It will focus on a small group and show both the good and the bad of these types wars (people
fighting for what they believe as well as people indulging in the lawlessness).
We are plotti ng it out now and will show a group that has to intermingle with civilians, is at a disadvantage tech wise, are painted as domestic
terrorists (and may be depending on perspective).
Both my friend and I are avid ATSers and have thought about this a lot, but neither of us have served in either the military or militia or anything
like that. We just think it woukd be a very interesting thing to put to film.
Obviously there are no absolute answers, but in order to make it as realistic as possible we have several things that need answers. However any and
all suggestions are welcome and though it will be a while before its finished we plan to post the episodes here as they are completed (via youtube).
This isn't in conjuction with ATS or sponsered, we just figured there are people here that would enjoy such a show.
Consider the show would take place in the beginning months of the unrest and doesn't conclude with the end of said unrest.
Some of the questions:
Who are the players? Can and will the US use its military or would the goverment side be coast guard/militarized police/fbi/etc? Nato?
What would be non fighting civilian reaction.
What would be the extent of govt force and/or political efforts to avoid conflict?
How would the world and especially Americas enemies react?
Would anyone aid rebels? Foreign countries or not out of fear of US reprisal? Mexican cartels selling weapons? Russia?
Would the US military aid rebels or fight them?
What would they do with captured rebels (kinda obcious, but details)?
Finally just any cool facts, ideas, things you wouldn't care to throw in the ring.
That's all for now, we will add more questions as we think of them.
Important clarification: I don't mean to be rude, but we are only interested in the answers to the above questions. We aren't interested in
plot suggestions or concepts. We are only trying to fill in the small details to make the story more plausible not to move the storyline. We dont need
any plot ideas..
