Filmmaker Weaving Tale of Military HeroismJanuary 30, 2018 | :
by James Poole
Very rarely are films about the military made by those who actually served.
Joshua DeFour, a radio-television-film graduate student and veteran of the United States Marine Corps, is one of those rare individuals. DeFour has been cultivating his storytelling skills in the MFA Film and Media Production program for the past three years and hopes to bring an authentic voice to the military genre when he starts shooting his thesis film, “The 11th Order,” this July.
“The 11th Order” takes inspiration from the true story of Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, two Marines who died on April 22, 2008, while stopping a truck filled with explosives from destroying a base in Ramadi, Iraq, just minutes after meeting each other.
