Front Lawn to Front Line: Georgetown ROTC

This documentary tells the story of the history and current day status of Georgetown ROTC through shadowing one of its top cadets. It also simultaneously documents the legacy of the Vietnam War at Georgetown, and the evolution of perspective between the protests once held on the main lawns against ROTC and the presence of the traveling Vietnam War Memorial this past Fall, The Wall that Heals.

Creating this documentary was one of the most rewarding experiences I've had at Georgetown. It took hours upon hours of hard work through early mornings shooting footage to late nights editing, but was worth every minute for the final product. Learning how to use Final Cut Pro was also an invaluable experience.
