Fallout: Coming Home - Peace Takes Courage

Fallout: Coming Home - Sneak Peek
A sneak preview at "FALLOUT"
This is a rough edit of the first six minutes of what will be a 50min+ documentary. I'm currently working on finishing up and hope to put it online next month. I have a rough edit complete and am currently in the process of doing some sound editing and smoothing out some transitions. It's a work in progress!

A little bit of information about this documentary and its progress:
I finished interviewing the veterans about a year ago, but a majority of the funding came from my savings, and my pocket emptied from filming expenses. As a result I didn't have money to pay for HQ b-roll footage from Iraq. After sitting on the footage for awhile I decided to take what I had filmed and work with it and footage from Iraq that I was able to find online. As a result most of the b-roll footage isn't high quality which is disappointing, but considering the obstacles thrown my way I'm happy with how the documentary is progressing. It is my first attempt at "full-length", and I've learned a lot from the experience that will help avoid the same mistakes in the future.

FALLOUT: Coming Home from the War in Iraq is a documentary about three veterans of the war in Iraq. Each veteran speaks about their experience as a soldier in Iraq and the challenges they faced while readjusting to civilian live here at home. Unbiased, this documentary aimed to have each veteran profile their own Iraq war experiences.
