“VISIONS OF WARRIORS” TO SCREEN AT THE SAN FRANCISCO VETERANS FILM FESTIVAL

We’re thrilled to announce that “Visions of Warriors” will be screening at the San Francisco Veterans Film Festival on [date and time TBA]. We’re deeply honored to screen our film at this growing festival in anticipation of Veterans Day. Because the film was made in the Bay Area, we’re excited to be able to share it with this vibrant community. According to its site, the “San Francisco Veterans Film Festival is a robust forum for active duty, Veterans and civilian filmmakers to express their creativity and to share their stories, which in turn helps further healing and brings greater awareness to the public on the challenges our nation’s Veterans face.” The festival is organized by One Vet One Voice, a comprehensive resource for veterans regarding VA benefits and services. The screening will take place at the stately San Francisco Public Library / Main Library in their Koret Auditorium.

“VISIONS OF WARRIORS” TO SCREEN AT THE L.A. PUBLIC LIBRARY / MEMORIAL BRANCH LIBRARY

“Visions of Warriors” will be screening at the L.A. Public Library / Memorial Branch Library on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at [time TBA] in celebration of the upcoming Veterans Day. We are deeply honored to work with the L.A. Public Library again to celebrate Veterans Day. The Memorial Branch Library has a rich history. The land on which it is located was deeded by Los Angeles High School to the City of Los Angeles in 1923 to honor twenty alumni who died while serving in WWI. The Gothic Revival-style library was built in 1930 and designed by John C. Austin, who was the lead architect of the Griffith Observatory. The students of L.A. High School commissioned the renowned Judson Studios to create a beautiful stained glass window with the names of the twenty alumni and an inscription, “Peace Among Nations.” The library is listed on the the National Register of Historic Places. Thank you to Deborah Matthews, Loren Spector, Eugene Owens, and the L.A. Public Library for organizing this special event!

HUMANIST FILMS EDITS A VIDEO FOR PELICAN PRODUCTS ABOUT WARRIOR EXPEDITIONS

We were deeply honored to work with Pelican Products, editing a video that showcases Warrior Expeditions, a non-profit veterans organization. According to their site, they “provide veterans with everything they need to complete a long distance outdoor expedition at no cost to the veteran.” In the video, retired Navy SEAL Jonathan Grant explains that the organization “helps support veterans, combat veterans, give them an opportunity to do a through-hike and to experience what they call as ‘nature therapy,’ give them an opportunity to decompress, to hit the reset button, and another term they use is ‘walking off the war.’” Thank you to Pelican Products, Kevin Murphy, Hank Chacon, and Tuan Tran for this wonderful opportunity!
