"From crazy to saviour in 24-hours,
being right never had it so bad."
How is the world doing? How’s humanity faring up as the cancer of man spreads like a malevolent virus across our beloved planet? War, violence, hatred, choking the life out of this hallowed earth. This beautiful earth we’ve fucked and raped and dishonoured with our cancerous, hate-filled, ways.
So, I work. I pay my dues. And then I watch TV. Gripped in a cycle of societal autopilot. Paying lip service to the family I’ve dragged into this world with my own selfish lust. Desperately avoiding eye contact, hopelessly consumed with the harsh realization that I’m wholly unequipped to protect them; to save them from the hysteria of this fucked up modern world. And then, when the world goes to sleep, I watch TV. Regularly. Like clockwork. Some nights I sleep – a few stolen hours here and there – others I don’t. I see out the nights and welcome the new day, like it’s the first. Glad to be alive, yet apathetically cursing every new dawn.
But tonight … things were different.

Just these six keywords alone lead down an online global rabbit hole of many millions of avid supporters, hobbyists, groups, publications, websites, blogs, vlogs, movements, clubs, festivals, brands, activists and individuals ranging from casual homesteaders to hardcore tin hat doom mongers!
In fact, within a modern world of fragility and every newsroom declaring daily disasters and impending doom the growth of the prepper movement has grown tenfold in the past few years alone. And with it, a multi billion dollar worldwide industry continues to flourish.
Rise of the Prepper Movement!
When National Geographic launched Doomsday Preppers in 2011 they had no idea it would go on to become their most popular show in history. Doomsday Preppers follows the lives of ordinary Americans who believe that a major catastrophe will end modern life. These individuals stockpile food, water, and weapons in an attempt to survive a devastating disaster. This ‘first of its kind’ program explores the ever-growing fears of a populace concerned with everything from pandemics to a polar shift.
Recent global events such as Covid-19, increasing ecological disasters, economic collapse in established nations and the worrying rise of public disorder and mass riots across Europe and America... these unprecedented events have caused a significant rise in the 'Prepper community'... based simply on probability alone.
Whether seeking out one of a thousand widely followed Youtube 'hardliners', ever growing online 'preparedness' content, or one of many prepper/survivalist feature films, there has never been a better time to release a hard hitting survival thriller that's rooted in the prepper mindset. The thirst for content is at an all time high.

WHY DB MORGAN'S PREPPER MOVIE
'db' Morgan has a unique voice - to his screenwriting and Directorial style. Although a long time coming due to family tragedy, his debut movie Faith, budgeted at less than £10,000, took the international festival circuit by storm - gathering over 30 awards and accolades.
DB writes from the heart, creating compelling stories about the human condition and pitting the everyman against the world. We engage with these characters because they are us! Fighting against the tide just to get ahead in life. The primitive fight for survival in an unfamiliar world.
Survival movies fall into several categories: The Hollywood blockbuster, where Will Smith or The Rock must save the planet from impending doom. Huge, spectacular set pieces in a rollercoaster of action, a tub-thumping God bless America tribute to the greatest country on earth. Then you have world cinema entries like the fantastic, South Korean, 'Train To Busan' series, where the zombie apocalypse is nigh. With a darker, more cynical, edge these films are epic. 28-days Later, The Road, Book of Eli, I Am Legend... yet more fantastic big budget blockbusters that are as relevant and popular today as when the cinema doors first opened.
Then there's another kind of movie. The low budget independent survival movie. Set in a smaller world, usually focusing on one or two individuals or a family. Aliens, zombies, invading forces, acts of terrorism or natural disasters: a huge, and diverse, sub genre of personal survival stories.
When done well you are forced to experience the horror alongside them. Cowering with them at every new downward turn and rejoicing in their small victories amidst the bleakness of their existence.
DB Morgan's 'Prepper: Deep Cover' will encompass the desperation and helplessness of a family trapped in the impending chaos of a devastating terrorist attack on Britain's power infrastructure.... and then invading forces. From a late night dash to the forest and then the unravelling story from their bolt hole, told through several initial interactions with fellow 'humanity' they meet along the way. A family divided by the pressures of the modern world, united by a fresh simplicity of survival, they come together like never before to survive just long enough for the powers-that-be to regain control.
From a misjudged trading attempt with the lakeside gang - a particularly hardcore group who control the water supply - to several perilous trips into the fringes of town for supplies, every turn leads our heroes towards new dangers as the hours tick by and society falls into chaos.
'Prepper: Deep Cover' poses several fascinating questions.
Do we really have it so good in the modern world?
Can we trust the government to protect us?
Will the UK really fall apart after 72-hours?
How desperate must one be to kill for survival?
In a SHTF scenario do we band together or go solo?
What's worth more: a jar of honey or a bottle of salt?
DB Morgan is excited to introduce you to his latest project. It's going to be a hell of a ride.
