I’m honored to report that I received the “Joint Service Achievement Medal” for my work making the documentary film “Jobs for G.I.s,” which our Denver video production company produced for DirecTV.

The award reads: “While in collaboration with DirecTV and working alongside Denver Producer and Director Doug Gritzmacher of Z-Channel Films, Director Dorst’s keen perspective was instrumental in capturing and melding the stories of five veterans from the services of the Army, Air Force, Navy and the Marines. His technical skills proved to be essential as he witnessed the realities most veterans face transitioning from military service to the civilian workplace.”

“GIJobs”, a documentary feature film produced for DirecTV by Z-Channel Films.

It concludes with “The distinctive accomplishments of Director Dorst reflect credit upon himself, Z-Channel Films, DirecTV and the veterans of the United States of America.”
