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!
