An original series based on true Veterans stories


Jobs & training opportunities for military men & women in the film industry


Veterans worked on set with the crew alongside award winning New York City cinematographer, Till Neumann.

"The military mindset translates well to the film set"


It takes a cohesive team to make any film. The discipline and special skill set makes each team members role on a film set important. Veterans find comradery and a new mission on a film set.

Gary Sinses Ambassador - Cpt. Leslie Nicole Smith & Issac inspired the VFA.


Lisa Regina the creator of "Heroic Episodes" and "The Shades" - 2 shorts Lisa filmed with Veterans on set as cast and crew members. The 2 projects are 'proof of concept' that the Veterans Film Apprenticeship is a successful job opportunity & training model.
