Baker Boys: Inside the Surge
Jon Steele shot and wrote Baker Boys: Inside the Surge between 2008-2010. This award winning, four part documentary series was based on unique and uncensored access to Baker Company of the 1/15 Infantry while posted on the Iraqi battlefield. Steele spent months embedded with the troops filming their daily life from sunup to sundown, capturing their feelings and emotions in a series of confessional-style interviews. The Baker Boys aired over four weeks on HDnet in North America and Sky/Virgin in UK, 2010. In 2012 the film was screened worldwide on Discovery Channel.
In 2012, Jon Steele was featured in the Matryn Burke documentary: Under Fire: Journalists in Combat. The film was shortlisted for an Academy Award.
