The NG DOCS program selects youth ages 17-22 for its documentary film crews that travel to National Guard locations around the country. Each crew spends five intensive days interviewing the Guard's personnel and local scientists, while working as a team to produce their documentary.
Film crews also work directly with a Supervising Producer, Director and/or Seasoned Intern, sharing the production headquarters on or near the National Guard's base of operations.
For 2009, the NG DOCS filmmakers were split into four teams — each crew traveling to one of the four National Guard locations in Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas and Nevada. Each crew explored different Guard green projects, from "reef rebuilding" to wildlife research, asking the tough questions to dig deep into the green initiatives.
In 2008, the first NG DOCS crews traveled to the Iowa National Guard to learn more about the heroes who helped during the catastrophic Midwest floods. The inagurual documentary,"Two Rivers in Iowa" is currently airing on cable TV video-on-demand, and you can also
see it here.
