If you have chosen not to go through the DoD process or your project/production has been denied support by the military service entertainment offices for any reason, whether due to budget/financial, no distribution outlet, whatever, there are alternative ways to get your production made. Although I can’t provide an armada of ships, troops or a squadron of aircraft, I can provide the services below:
Script review and notes and/or recommended changes for accuracy to either begin shooting or to resubmit to the military services for consideration.
Post-Production review. Imagine working for months, even years, on a project only to misidentify locations, personnel or equipment. This can be avoided by having your military technical advisor there at key points in post-production.
Uniform/wardrobe/equipment recommendations that ensure the correct items are utilized for the project period/era.
On-set advisor for scene set-up, actor preparation, etc. Although not required when working with the DoD, there is a benefit to having your own military technical advisor on-set to provide immediate assistance in the case of a disagreement between the production and the DoD Project Officer.
Technical assistance to:
Fees are based on how much time is spent on your project.
Whether you have a multi-million dollar production, an Indy film, a television series, a documentary, or book, fees are determined on a case by case basis. You may contact me at Curtis@MilitaryTechnicalAdvisor.com , or click on the "contact" tab on the navigation bar at the top of this page. Once I receive your email, I will phone you or provide a form for you to fill out that will help me understand your needs. At that point I will be able to ascertain applicable fees for your project.
Military tech advisement is there to help you with the accuracy of your script, wardrobe, equipment, etc. It’s neither my job nor intention to be in a production as an actor. My job is to provide assistance in making your military-related production as accurate as YOU want it to be…unlike the DoD Entertainment Officers who need it to be a fully accurate portrayal.
