Battle Rats Title

Our Production

I think it’s important to make note that Battle Rats Iwo Jima was not a full-blown production with a full crew in the field. We actually were a small 5 man band host, c-host, cameraman (who also ran sound) and a production assistant. My hat goes off to my crew for enduring and humping all that gear on foot, across the island and into 54 different tunnel systems. On the island there are 300 known tunnel networks, with 5 of these being deemed safe. The other 295 are either off limits or “enter at your own risk”. But with three days unlimited access we pushed ourselves to explore and “film” (record) as much of the island battlefield as we could.
