crossing the Rubicon
In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar led a single legion south over the Rubicon river into Italy to make his way to Rome. In doing so, he (deliberately) broke the law on imperium and made armed conflict inevitable. According to Suetonius, Caesar uttered the famous phrase alea iacta est ("the die has been cast").
The phrase "crossing the Rubicon" has survived to refer to any individual or group committing itself irrevocably to a risky or revolutionary course of action, similar to the modern phrase "passing the point of no return." Caesar's decision for swift action forced Pompey, the lawful consuls, and a large part of the Roman Senate to flee Rome in fear.
Even it today's environment of "democratized" film making, independent film is a risky endeavor. At Rubicon Crossing, we've made a number of short films, comedies, drama, musical, and even a Kickstarter promotional reel. All from script to final edit. Among our many strengths, we're not afraid to "fix it in post."
