WHAT'S THIS FILM ALL ABOUT?

12:15 Sunday is a documentary short about a true story that comes from the memories of veteran John Jenkins's during his time in the European Theatre of WWII. 

This film is heavily complimented with dramatic reenactments.  This is the primary reason why the film needs the above funding and support.  We seek to bring John's story to life; to allow those moments to breathe.  Your support will help with aspects of production like locations fees, production design, costumes, props, and much more!

Shooting dates are Feb.17-19th and Feb. 24th-26th of 2012

SUMMARY

As a navigator, John flew in B-17 planes in the United States 8th Air Force to direct their heading towards the target.  During his first mission, his plane was singled out for heavy fire by the enemy, forcing him and his crew to bail out over German territory.  After John parachuted safely to the ground, he now found himself alone and with little hope of escape behind enemy lines. 

John's attempt to return to American lines would bring him into perilous circumstances for a defenseless man.  But every step back towards friendly lines sparked hope and spurred him onward.

Thank you for looking into 12:15 Sunday.  Your support will carry John's story to the screen!
