Teen brothers show Honor Flight documentary on the big screen

Posted: Updated:

Two local brothers had their film shown on the big screen.

Brothers Carlos and Kyle Plummer have been making movies together since about 2008. They said they started by producing backyard shorts and quickly realized their passion for film.

The Plummer brothers have made several documentaries highlighting the military. Their latest is about the local Honor Flight program, which flies World War II veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorials in their honor.

Older brother Kyle and his dad took the flight with the veterans to the country's capitol to film a documentary. Younger brother Carlos did most of the behind-the-scenes work, editing the hours of video his brother and dad came back from the trip with.

Carlos and Kyle's hard work paid off. Their documentary played at the Galaxy Theater in Atascadero on Sunday.

"It ended up turning out to be something that we had almost full creative freedom to basically mold the whole project," Kyle Plummer said, "but once we showed it to the people at Honor Flight, they loved it."

Some of the veterans who have participated in Honor Flight were at the documentary's big screen debut.

"I think it's very important to get the story of the film out," World War II veteran Charles Rose said. "We've still got some World War II veterans out there who have not made the trip and we need to get them back there."

The Plummers also plan to show their movie a the DOCUTAH International Documentary Festival this fall. That festival takes place at Dixie State University, where Kyle has a scholarship for the upcoming school year. He plans to study (you guessed it) film.
