Bastards’ Road is a new, inspiring documentary that tells the story of Jon Hancock, a Marine Veteran who in 2015 and 2016 walked 5,800 miles as a way to heal his wounds from war, with the help of his fellow Marine brothers and the families of fallen soldiers.
For my last interview in my two interviews for this film, I was able to focus more on the production side chatting with director, editor and cinematographer Brian Morrison, as well as Aliceanna Collective founders Daniel Strauch and Michael Marx-Gibbons about their involvement on the music side.
For this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, my guest was the documentary subject of the film and consulting producer, Jon Hancock. In the conversation we chat about what made Jon want to start this journey, the prep for it, reflecting on his journey and starting the Bastards’ Road Project (a non-profit taking veterans on hikes), brotherhood, the vulnerability in the film, how they filmed parts of his walk, Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” as well as the unique aspect of being able to see the documentary at mostly every stage of production. There’s more in between, too.
You can find that conversation directly below, go here to download the audio, or you can click on the YouTube video below, too. As well, follow this link for my first conversation with Brian Morrison, Daniel Strauch and Michael Marx-Gibbons.
Bastards’ Road is now available on DVD in the U.S. and Canada and is available on digital platforms as well, with viewing options on iTunes, Fandago Now, YouTube, Google Play and more.
