Inside FRONTLINE Behind the Lens: Obama's War
July 23, 2010
A Canon 5D Mark II, a skateboard wheel and a custom-built steady cam device led to some of the most intense war footage FRONTLINE has ever aired -- Chapter 1 of Obama's War -- shot by Danfung Dennis while embedded with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment in Afghanistan's Helmand province [Warning: This chapter contains graphic language and violent imagery]. Dennis was recently named one of the top 25 new faces of independent film by Filmmaker magazine and was nominated for any Emmy for his work on Obama's War along with veteran and award-winning director of photography Timothy Grucza [The War Briefing, Gangs of Iraq].
