Vanguard University Professor’s World War II (WWII) Documentary to Air on National Geographic Channel May 31, 2013

Inside World War IIIt’s not every day that students can boast that their professor is an accomplished, professional film editor.

Aaron Daniel Annas’s students can.

On Friday, May 31, 2013 at 7PM ET/PT,  Inside World War II, a documentary for which Annas has three credits – Associate Editor/SFX Design, Finishing Editor, and Sound Effects Editor – will air on National Geographic Channel.  According to the National Geographic, which has posted a trailer on YouTube, Inside World War II is a three-hour television event that provides a detailed visual timeline of the complex war, with personal, in-depth stories from veterans who fought in the deadliest conflict in human history. Inside World War II is the intimate story of the last global war, told by the survivors — those who endured the front line’s bloody conflicts. Those who witnessed the brutality of combat give their unfiltered accounts. Included in the interviews are former prisoner of war and “Slaughterhouse-Five” author Kurt Vonnegut and the grandson of legendary general George S. Patton.

As an assistant professor of Cinema Arts who teaches courses in the communications department at Vanguard University, Annas brings a rich array of professional experience to the academic table.  In addition to Inside World War II, Annas has been assistant editor on Great Lake Warriors (The History Channel) and editor of Parole Diaries (TVOne), in addition to many other films and projects.

Of all the shows he’s worked on, Annas says he is most proud of his work on Inside World War II.  “This documentary had a huge team and tons of footage, including actual footage of WWII,” said Annas.  “Because there were no sound recordings back then, we  had to find  sound sources for all the footage.  So the families who provided footage will be seeing the documentary for the first time.”
