My friendship with Ret. Army Captain Leslie Nicole Smith has grown into our shared mission. Our close bond opened my world to other veterans and inspired me to create the Veterans Film Apprenticeship, Drone Training Program and to write a series titled, 'Heroic Episodes.' The series is based on true stories of veterans. My research includes nine years of interviews with military men and women of all branches of service and all wars. Our heroes stories include messages of bravery, hope and humanitarian acts. These stories are vast and often go untold. The apprenticeship and the series will work in conjunction to provide our heroes with camaraderie, jobs and most importantly, healing.
Our producing team is dedicated to creating content that explores and shares the diverse and real stories of our Veterans. Our team leader, Producer and Writer, Lisa Regina has spent nine years interviewing military men and women of all branches of service and all wars in order to honor and give voice to Veterans true stories.
Most importantly, the one on one interviews have offered Regina insight into the lives of our Veterans, providing realistic and powerful content for the writing of the characters and storylines in the series. Lisa has adapted the Veterans true stories to each episode of the dramatic series, Heroic Episodes. Learning about the hardships military men and women often face, Lisa also created the VFA-the Veterans Film Apprenticeship. The VFA provides veterans training and job opportunities in the film and aviation industry.
The Heroic Episodes team includes military consultants who are dedicated to the series and who give the process of writing each episode authenticity. Heroic Episodes is deeply grateful to have our Veterans as part of our production team. We respect and value each and every Veteran who has served and sacrificed for our freedom and for our country.
The Veterans who consult our creative team offer insight into military life. It also provides engaging content with characters that are rich and relatable. Some of the stories are inspiring, while others share the struggles of our Veterans returning home. With the guidance of our military consultants, Heroic Episodes is able to provide a platform to military men and women, who have a strong desire to have their stories told.
The camaraderie of our production team allows our individual talents to emerge and create content of integrity and grit.
