Matt Mikka Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Fund Life After The Battlefield

Producer Matt Mikka has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund Life After The Battlefield, a documentary about returning injured veterans and how they assimilate into “regular” life once again.

Life After the Battlefield is a documentary series about how wounded soldiers of modern war zones adapt to life after returning home.  This television series will feature vets who are struggling with returning to “normal” life and the challenges they face.  According to producer Matt Mikka, “For the majority of our veterans the real war starts when they return home with a life changing or crippling injury.

In this documentary series, we are bringing the much hidden afterlife of these soldiers into the public eye, and we are showing how they adapt to their injuries at home, with their kids, at work and elsewhere.  It’s a game changer, and we are excited to get started.”

Mikka himself suffers from severe injuries and knows the struggles these men and women face.  “I myself have been through this treacherous recovery and the battle continues at home for many years to come.  The story is not always a sad one, though: sometimes we make miraculous unexpected adaptations fueled by self-motivation and determination.”

Episodes will be produced as long as there are funds to do so.  The series will document different stories in a serial format produced for airing on television or cable stations.  

The Kickstarter campaign, as seen at, features pledge levels from $10 to $5,000, with rewards including bronze plaques, episode copies and executive producer credits.

For more information on the specific rewards associated with each pledge level, see the Kickstarter page.
