No Bridge Too Far - WWII documentary

No Bridge Too Far
is a three-part documentary, written, produced and directed by myself, with funding procured with kindness from WWII veterans, their families and other interested parties. It is dedicated to my father, a combat engineer, and his fellow G.I.'s, whose story is rarely told within World War Two circles.

Part one was completed a few years ago, but production fell by the wayside for several reasons including running the family business - ah, there are only so many hours in the day, no matter how dedicated you are!

Now that the family business is closed, I would like to delve in and complete parts two and three, in order to present it to the WWII veterans who are still with us. However, as with any venture, additional funding is needed in order to pay voice-over actors and obtain copyrights for music, imaging and video clips.

Please help me bring my dream to fruition, so I can tell the story of the strength and sacrifice of the WWII combat engineers.
