About

This half-hour documentary, "Exit Wound", was filmed in early 2012, as my master's thesis at UC Berkeley, under the tutelage of professor and legendary documentary film maker, Jon Else.

I believe this film is important in showing what veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are dealing with, and illustrating why soldiers are 3 times more likely to die after returning than while actually in combat.

A cut of the film was completed in May. The next step is to finalize the film this summer and get it out into the public - film festivals, and getting picked up for broadcast or distribution.

I need your help getting the film polished and out into the public.

Thanks for your help.
