Clips from Year at Danger (some of which didn’t make it into the finished film) are going to appear in a music video for Jesse Dayton’s song “I’m Comin’ Home” from the album “Voices of a Grateful Nation Volume 1.” Sales of the album benefit the Welcome Home Project and Soldiers’ Angels.
The video is currently in post-production and we’ll post it on here once it’s finished, but until then you can learn more about the album and the Welcome Home Project on their website.
We’ve set up a Facebook page for the film. We’ll be posting updates about the film on there (some of which we may not post here) so it’s great way to get the most up-to-date information about the film.
Film Threat has just released its list of ” indie films from the festival circuit that didn’t suck.” They included Year at Danger and said “Little can prepare you for Steve Metze’s uncensored, unexpurgated account of life on the ground at FOB “Danger” near Tikrit, Iraq. […] this may very well be the best documentary of the year. And none of you saw it.” Check out the whole list right here.
While announcing the Houston Film Critics Society’s 2008 award-winners, The Houston Press‘ Pete Vonder Haar decided to share his picks for the best films of the year and said Year at Danger received his vote for Best Documentary of 2008!
