In 2011, I served as a production assistant (credited) on the independent film Doughboy. The film was later renamed The Pledge and recieved a number of awards and formal recognitions, including The Dove Foundation's "Family Approved" Seal.
In 2011, two different independent film companies - Route 40 FIlms and Flyover Films - joined together to create a series of movies, the purpose of which was to respectfully touch upon potentially polarizing issues while inspiring audiences of varying political opinions. The first of these films - Doughboy, later renamed The Pledge - was a family-friendly look at war, patriotism, and duty from several political and social perspectives.
Although I was credited as a production assistant, I served at almost every level of production. Often working from the early afternoon until the early morning, I helped to organize and managed the cast, I cared for props, and I dealt with the setup and takedown of all film equipment.
The film recieved positive reviews and several awards, including The Dove Foundation's "Family Approved" Seal. It was also the Official Selection of 2012 GI Film Festival.
