Where the film, “American Sniper” ends...we BEGIN...

We unravel the complexities of war, family, trauma and its impact on society.

Inspired by the director's personal journey during the Vietnam years, Battlefield: Home - Through the Lens of the Daughter of a Vietnam Vet, is the extension of her unanswered questions that impacted her family during a time of social turmoil.

This intimate insight into the lives and homes of our veteran community, combined with our balance of medical and psychological experts, explains the realities of war, service and resiliency.

Why are we different?

Aside from taking a wider look at what is happening, this story is told from the inside by someone who has lived it, dealt with it and come through it. This story is about reality...it is raw, it is honest, but it is also hopeful, and offers real solutions and real insight into the dynamics of the ripple effects of trauma!

Risks and challenges

Post production takes time and money. Even with a talented crew, we are all beholden to the GOOD – FAST - CHEAP model of delivery. You can only pick two – and Good absolutely has to be one of the two.
Unless we can pay the piper (we don’t expect anyone to default on their mortgage on our clock!), the film will be at the mercy of other paying jobs, and we don’t want that...we want to be their priority!

This money will help us bring this closer to our film’s release, and more importantly to its outreach…. to communities, universities, medical and mental health facilities and support organizations.

Why $25,000?

After ten years of research and shooting, we have a locked film on target. But that’s just the beginning of what post production entails. $25,000 is the bare minimum to get started:

Basic Mix - $9,000.00 +
Color Correction - $6,5,00.00 +
Music - $4,000.00 +
Graphics - $2500.00 +
Editorial - $3,000.00 +

COME JOIN US IN OUR MISSION! BECOME PART OF THIS INCREDIBLE JOURNEY!

So...what happens if we don’t hit our goal?

Well, we won’t give up, we are all in, as scary as that is, but the story and film will remain in limbo, which further delays its mission and goals.

If we exceed our goal?

Every cent will go to making the picture better. Sound design and color correction will be upgraded. We can get a full sound mix and – whoa – maybe even a 5.1 mix...you know that sound in theatre that makes the film come alive?
