Scuttlebutt Ep 32: “Once A Marine” filmmaker Stephen Canty

Stephen Canty sat down with William to talk about his stunning documentary “Once A Marine” available on Amazon Prime. Canty, who served two tours in Afghanistan, including Marjah, spent seven years on the documentary and takes us on the journey of what it meant to make the film, how to listen to veterans, and the generational differences and similarities between veterans of different eras. They also talk about the evolution of the film, to how Canty got the rights to use Pagan Altar’s music for the soundtrack, and much, much more. This was an exciting interview, as everyone who has seen the movie can attest, it is a seminal documentary that needs more recognition.
