"Kansas Moon, The Last Hunt", is a film set in the west (Texas and Kansas) in the years 1871, 1872. The title is "Kansas Moon, The Last Hunt". Kansas Moon is based on an actual incident that took place between the grandfather of a Comanche Indian family and a small group of Pawnee (1866-67).
The film shows the conflict between the Native American and buffalo hunters, as well as the grandfather who has set out on a quest as he tracks the Pawnee from Texas to Kansas to avenge the killing of his family.
Kansas Moon has been screened at the Sundance Film Festival and is currently being screened at the Hoosier Hearland Film Festival in Indianapolis, the second largest in the nation. We've re-entered it in the 2013 Sundance Film Festival as a Docu Drama.
My name is Bill Proctor. I served in Vietnam as a Combat Motion Picture Photographer in 1966 and 1967. I received my training at the U.S. Army Pictorial Center Studio in 1966 which is located in Queens (Astoria) New York and what is now the Kaufman Astoria Studios. In 1966 I was sent to Vietnam and served as a combat photographer during my tour of duty. After Vietnam, I returned to my home town of Indianapolis and went to work for Uncle Sam for the next thirty years, retiring in 1996. After retirement I picked up my love for the camera again and opened my own production company, Perfect Hat Productions, specializing in historic films and documentaries. I've also worked on several major films as a Native American Advisor, stunt man and actor.
We are a small, independent minority owned company specializing in historic theme video productions. The past six months we have been working on a film shot on location on the vast prairies of Kansas just south of the historic cattle trail head, Ellsworth Kansas. We were fortunate that we were able to film on a private ranch owned by Jim Gray, known as the "Kansas Cowboy" and show the beautiful, wild vast Kansas prairie to good advantage.
Jim is a wealth of knowledge on Kansas history and the author of "Desperate Seed, Ellsworth Kansas on the Violent Frontier". We were able to use Jim as an advisor on our film and tap into his vast knowledge of the pre 1900 west. We return to Kansas in May of 2011 to finish the final few scenes prior to post production.
