“GI Jobs” Airs tomorrow on DirecTV!

By Doug Gritzmacher

Denver Director of Photography & Cinematographer


I’m pleased to announce that my new feature documentary film “G.I. Jobs” is premiering on DirecTV’s Audience Network Saturday, Nov. 7, during the week of Veterans Day. I produced this with my producing partner, Steve Dorst, and we are the first production company that DirecTV chose to work with as it ramps up its original documentary programming. Shot entirely in 4K, “G.I. Jobs” also will be available on DirecTV’s on-demand “4K Showcase.” It will be available on iTunes in early 2016.


It’s been an intense and rewarding year working on this film, which is set in Los Angeles. A big thanks to our subjects Alex, Andy, Aneika, Christian, and Doreen. We appreciate you letting us into your lives! Through your experiences, we gained a better understanding of the many challenges that vets face when they transition out of the service. We’re also impressed with the good work of Los Angeles’ community of veteran service organizations: From the Vet Hunters to the Salvation Army Haven to Reboot, we appreciate the opportunity to “watch you work” (with the Red Epic on our shoulder). You are an inspiration!


“G.I. Jobs,” airing on the Audience Network, Saturday, Nov 7. Channel 239. 8pm & 11pm ET.


This production was shot with RED Epic 4K camera.
