Tooele, Utah – The WWII feature film Devil’s Men has completed principal photography and has locked the film for the composer Robert Allen Elliott to begin work on the score, according to Director Dave Bresnahan.

“I am thrilled with the work of our production company COMv headed by Weston Childers. Because of their careful pre-production planning, they have been able to assemble our film in record time. Edits are complete and the film is now locked and ready for the post production work of the composer, colorist, special effects, and sound departments,” explained Bresnahan.

Devil’s Men is the story of a real soldier with the First Special Service Force during WWII, Sam Byrne (Caleb Hafen). The story was developed from the personal letters and diary Byrne sent to his family during the war.

“Sam’s story is not unique. His dramatic and horrific experiences help us to understand what so many soldiers went through during WWII, and the challenges they faced for the rest of their lives because of the effects of what they experienced while fighting the war,” said Bresnahan.

The story includes the relationships and experiences of Sam’s buddies in his unit, Ernest Chipchase (Casey Elliott) and “Frenchy” Jean Paul Sabourin (R. Dustin Harding).

Elliott is well known as a singer in the popular music group GENTRI. He sings an original love song “Hold Me” in the film, composed by Robert Allen Elliott, his father, with lyrics by his mother Kathryn Jorge. Sam and his girl friend dance to the song in a romantic scene just before he leaves for the war.

“We see Sam leave his family behind as he leaves for basic training, and then we see him leave his girlfriend behind as he leaves for war. This is the challenge many families had to face as their loved ones left to defend our freedoms,” said Bresnahan.

The story is based on the book “With the Black Devils” by Mark J. Nelson, the nephew of Sam Byrne. Bresnahan wrote the screenplay, and Nelson served as executive producer.
