PRINCIPAL FILMMAKING TEAM
 

Brothers In Arms film Jordan Charles

A NOTE ON DIVERSITY

 

The filmmakers are proud of the effort devoted to diversity and inclusion on this film production. Cast and crew positions included creatives from more than fifteen countries. Women, minorities, and multinationals contributed to key leadership positions in multiple departments, and several crew members realized their first film credit, and union membership with their work. 

Further, our efforts for wider reach and social impact continued into post-production, where we sought and contracted with Getcovers, a digital marketing content service based in the Ukraine featuring Ukrainian creatives. We are honored by the immeasurable work devoted by those dedicated professionals while enduring a national hardship. Our thoughts are with them. 

 

This film would not be possible without the efforts of all. For a list of scrolling credits of most creative personnel associated with the making of this film, click:
