For the past six years, in between working on client projects, I have been hard at work on my own documentary feature film. My colleague Mike DeChant and I produced, directed, and edited “Soldiers of Paint,” a film about D-Day recreated as a paintball game in Oklahoma. I also served as the film’s director of photography. The film was released by First Run Features the other week and is now available on DVD, Amazon, and iTunes.
The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. A sampling: “ I am no fan of documentaries. What I am a fan of is exceptional storytelling, and that’s exactly what is delivered with ‘Soldiers of Paint’. It’s relevant. It’s fun. It explores a lifestyle I never imagined nor knew anything about. If more features came down the pike like this—that celebrated a uniquely American event in a uniquely American way—I’d be hard-pressed NOT to fall in love with documentaries because this one, in particular, is a delight.” – Edward Lee
