How did the two of you come to work on the project together?
David: Phil and I worked together at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the mid-1990s. At the time, he was a producer and I was shooter/editor, and we developed a great creative rapport in our work together and maintained contact over the years.

When I returned from the Normandy trip and began wading through the footage and talking with my sponsor about what we would do, it became obvious pretty quickly that this was not a one-person project. My work situation at the time didn't give me the flexibility to focus on the project full time, and it was immediately clear that in order to make what had been proposed—the short memento-style piece—into a quality work, someone had to wrap their head around the subject full time. I called Phil to see if he could help.

Phil: I had been running my company Jump\Cut Productions for about four years at that time, doing primarily environmental education projects. This was a great opportunity for me on many fronts. It was an interesting story with some real potential for development, and I would be reconnecting with an old friend who was a great creative partner. I jumped right in.
