ONE HALLOWEEN TRAILER
Over 25 veterans and 3 wounded veterans worked on the cast and crew to create ONE HALLOWEEN, a NALIP Latino Lens incubator short film.
ONE HALLOWEEN is lucky enough to to be supported by several grants, including the Panavision New Filmmakers Grant, the NALIP Latino Lens grant and a grant from the Disable American Veterans.
However we are still raising the finishing funds for this film. If you would like to contribute and take part in the making of this film please go to :

The Illustrated Man
The Illustrated Man features Ryan Le Va whose personality is as colorful as the tattoos that adorn his body.
Deployed in 2003, Le Va served in Iraq for 14 months straight as a member of the Military Police with the Army National Guard. His left sleeve shows a fuel pump and a piston engine representing his brother and sister
whose support kept him going.
Le Va’s own symbols, a spider caught in a web and a broken robot, counters his own sense of humor. “Most of us are really funny guys,” says Le Va, “and ridiculously good-looking.”

The Letter | ABC Short Film

Rebecca’s film "The Letter" tells the heartwarming story of a little girl who writes a letter to Santa. This year, the only thing she wants is for her mother, who is deployed to Afghanistan, to come back home for Christmas.
“I want people to understand there are women out there who give up a lot to serve their country. They leave behind their kids, families, and homes, and don't ask for recognition or awards. They are strong women that walk around the streets, women you would pass by and never even notice, but women who would lay down their lives for their country, just like a man would. And, in some cases, they did pay the ultimate sacrifice. Those are the type of stories that need to be told”. – Rebecca Murga
