FLASHBACK FRIDAY, 2002:
We color corrected and provided a distinctive look with the FILMLOOK® process on the documentary, “Colors of Courage: Sons of New Mexico, Prisoners of Japan.” Producers Scott Henry and Anthony Martinez shot on Beta SP and DV intercut with original WWII film footage. Henry and Martinez produced the documentary for the University of New Mexico.
“Colors…” tells the story of Mexican and Native American contributions and ordeals during World War II. Focusing primarily on New Mexico’s 200th and 515th Coast Artilleries, which unified and overcame their ethnic diversity to become the Army’s elite anti-aircraft regiment. The 200th and 515th were sent to Asia early in the war and became part of the Bataan Death March when Japan defeated U.S. forces in the Philippines, later becoming the most decorated units of WWII.
“Colors…” premiered December 7th, 2012 in Santa Fe, New Mexico to an audience including survivors and family members of the 200th and 515th. Here is a link http://www.angelfire.com/nm/bcmfofnm/sonm/sonm01.html that tells you more about this heartwarming documentary.
