TARGETED!!! THE ORIGINAL
The gun's the law out here in the West!

In the 1980s, a seven year old wrote a western movie script. It made no sense at all. This short film was shot from that unedited script. It inspired the ongoing Targeted short film series, which uses some of this film's characters and settings in a much more mature and detailed (not to mention rational) story.

Jimmy Makton is a naive greenhorn who's found himself in the wild west. Luckily, Samuel Barnet's showing him the ropes of how to survive in the area...but Bickerin' Billy's in town looking to get back the money Samuel owes him by the deadliest means.

Jimmy Makton & The Counting Room Three
JIMMY MAKTON
AND THE COUNTING ROOM THREE

Some legends are made. Some are manufactured.

Jimmy Makton is a Pinkerton Agent and two-fisted Chicago hero in the 1870s who nearly meets his match when he tracks three bank robbers to their hideout -- well, according to what he tells the press anyway.

There's more than one side to a story and Jimmy's got them all covered, depending on who's listening. See how it all goes down in this prequel to The Bounty Hunter And The Butcher!
