About the Film
The story of how all this madness came to be is pretty simple. The owner of the app “Llama or Duck?!” reached out to Trent and asked him to shoot a commercial that would coincide with a new update. Trent called us up asking us to come along. We all were film students at Full Sail University, so natural the answer was yes. We all loved making movies and all hated Orlando therefore would jump at any reason to get out. So we packed up our film and camping gear and set out to Augusta, Georgia. We knew we only needed about a half of a day to shoot so three and a half would be left up to adventure. What we didn’t know is that the trip would be something to remember for a lifetime. It was an absolutely amazing experience and we all are so thankful to be able to journey together. Thank you for watching the film and sharing it with friends and family. In-a-way, when you watch and share this film you have become part of the adventure. We truly hope you enjoy our film The Augusta Trip.
