CCAD staffer works as colorist on award-winning documentary about U.S. veterans

CCAD Photo, Film & Video Facilities Manager Shawn M. Green worked as a colorist on The Veterans’ Project, a feature-length documentary that will be part of a featured screening in Athens this upcoming Veteran’s Day.

On Monday, Nov. 11, from 1 to 3 p.m., the film will be screened at the Athena Cinema in Athens, Ohio. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will take place after the annual Veterans Day parade and ceremony in uptown Athens, with a Q&A to follow.

The documentary “takes an unflinching look at the 'military-civilian gap' in American healthcare,” according to IMDB. “Several stories of veterans and healthcare professionals are woven together to bring to light the uphill battle most combat and service-wounded veterans face when navigating the complexities of military, VA and civilian healthcare systems.” The Veterans’ Project seeks to bring civilian physicians and the American public closer to the individual voices of veterans of all ages, as they return to civilian life and seek to live long productive lives after they have served.

The Veterans’ Project was an official selection of the 2018 Columbus International Film & Animation Festival and won “Best of Competition” for faculty long-form documentary at the 2018 Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts.
