Metal Road immediately assembled a production team: we needed to find a good producer, cinematographer, editor, a production assistant, and most importantly, a babysitter. Because we had a limited preproduction budget the crew really attached themselves to the subject matter of the film. The life of Navajo Railroaders was such a unique story. We were happy to get Leighton C. Peterson, a sometime Navajo inlaw/outlaw as a film producer on his days off as a professor of anthropology at Miami University.
Our cinematography was a combination of talents from Kahlil Hudson and Jake Hoyungowa. And our handsome editor Jeff Barnaby signed on from Canada. (More on these individuals later). Now that this crew is aboard there is no turning back.
