Background & Synopsis
A historical drama, 1805 was shot in eight days over a two-week period stretching from August 10-24, 2020, in-and-around Lancaster, PA. The production was filmed entirely outdoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic and contains no interior shots. Shooting locations included historic sites like Historic Rock Ford and the Hans Herr House.
After meticulous post-production, 1805 was completed on February 20th, 2022 and is currently being submitted to film festivals around the world.
Many films depict a hero rising to overcome a system. This film shows a system designed to prevent a hero’s rise altogether; a system wherein even the most noble sacrifice is rendered moot.
