Early in December 2020, we started production on a new film called THE PATRIOTS’ DAY. This faith encouraging, multi-plot film follows the lives of three different American soldiers. Set during the Iraq war, the film’s goal is to help shed light on the mental health issues many American military men and women deal with on a daily basis.
“This film isn’t just about these soldiers coming home and experiencing emotional and physical withdrawal; it’s about their relentless patriotism,” says Jason Campbell, President of JCFilms.
Dean Cain, Heather Habura, and Jordan Gingrich star in this wartime dramatic feature film. On January 28th, production will resume in Bridgeport and Morgantown, WV. The film is in partnership with Beckley Film Crew from Beckley, WV. Below are some opportunities to GET INVOLVED
