We are thrilled to announce, that while previously unavailable, Capt. Dale Dye (Col. Robert Sink) has recently been able to clear his schedule to join us for the Band of Brothers 20th Anniversary Symposium.
As an additional treat, we will be offering a complimentary discussion with Capt. Dye taking place 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 12, 2022, in US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center.
Those who are registered for the symposium are welcome to join us in person for this discussion. A livestream will be available to the public to view online. Please register at this link to view the livestream.
The discussion will circulate around what it took to get the actors ready for filming, how to build a boot camp, what it means to be a military advisor on set, and more. Capt. Dye will share stories of filming battle scenes, his process of ensuring historical and military accuracy throughout the series, and how he helped transform civilian actors into seasoned soldiers.
Capt. Dye will be joined in this discussion by fellow military advisors for the series and some of the actors who worked under his purview. The discussion will be moderated by producer Kirk Saduski.
