Director Biography - Nathan Cragun

The son of an Air Force pilot and the oldest of four children, Nathan developed his love for history, aviation, the military, and filmmaking when he was shown the movie, "The Memphis Belle," at five years old.

Throughout High School, Nathan taught himself the art of filmmaking until he joined the United States Air Force in 2008. In 2012, after serving a religious mission to Brazil, Nathan started his studies in Communications: Public Relations and Advertising at Weber State University, graduating in 2016 while still a member of the Utah Air National Guard.

For Nathan, filmmaking has always been a hobby and a passion that he takes his own time to pursue. In 2017, Nathan fulfilled one part of his dream by being selected as a KC-135 pilot candidate in the same squadron for which his father flew.
