Through candid interviews with veterans from World War II to the War on Terror, Brotherhood captures the tragedies and triumphs of war.

About this project

Some of them enlisted. Some were drafted. All of them served. This is their story. 

Splinter Media Productions has teamed up with the American Legion Post 297 to present a captivating and unfiltered record of war. Through candid interviews with veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and the War on Terror, Brotherhood captures the tragedies and triumphs from the most engaging battles in American history. 

All DVD sales will go to the American Legion to benefit veterans of war. 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest concern is the sad reality that we are losing more of our nation's aging veterans every day. Because of that, we are missing out on the opportunities to hear their incredible, personal stories. Recording the unique perspectives of these humble heroes not only creates lasting memories for their families and communities, but adds to our nation's historic treasury.

The pitfall with documentary filmmaking, when interviewing a large number of subjects, is scheduling conflicts that arise. To make the most of costly production time, the cast and crew must adhere to strict scheduling demands and, occasionally, minor adjustments have to be made the day of filming. This issue can typically be remedied with strategic planning and communication between production company and the subjects being interviewed. Scheduling is a work process that we have continually improved upon with the knowledge gained through past experiences.
