Protocol 734 Wins Best Action Sequence Feature!

Kingman, AZ, United States

In the event of a nuclear war, specialized cells of operatives have been trained and conditioned to prepare the retrieval of important members of society, then evacuate them to an underground facility. The nowhere town of Barlow soon becomes somewhere in Protocol 734. The apocalyptic action thriller caught on quickly in Kingman AZ where it was shot in February/March 2016. Principal photography began the first week of February, while still casting for some of the lead roles. Many of the locations were shot on or near historic Route 66, including Slaughterhouse Canyon, Hill Top Motel, Rutherford’s and The Tack Shed.

“I was amazed by the early reception to the project. What started out as a feasibility study, soon turned into a full blown production after I met Kingman resident and artist, Gregg Arnold,” recalls Director Richard Benter. “When we initially met, Gregg was cast to be the Deputy Sheriff; but after a lot of work on his part, he was promoted to Sheriff and then Associate Producer! Everything moved so fast on this project,” stated Benter.

Protocol 734 World Premiered at the 2016 Action On Film Festival where it won Best Action Sequence Feature. Protocol 734 is now available on Amazon Prime.
