The Veteran Artist Program (VAP) is taking on an initiative called Vets on Sets (VOS) as a sub-program in our Film Division. VAP takes artists, who are also veterans, and helps propel their careers into the mainstream creative arts community through professional networking, mentorship, and event production.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
VOS will target filmmakers and producers throughout the US in an effort to encourage the employment of veterans in the filmmaking process. VAP believes that veterans have the skill sets, motivation, and experiences to enhance the filmmaking process at all levels. Eventually, the VOS logo and brand will be shown in the credits of movies, on the back of t-shirts, and on film marketing materials as an expression of support for veterans working in the industry and will represent the projects adherence to the VOS standards of employment of veterans in the movie-making community.
VAP is looking to create a separate logo for the VOS initiative that is similar to the VAP logo (attached) in simplicity but conveys the nature of VOS. We hope that the logo will convey the tie to the filmmaking industry but also convey the veteran perspective.
Inclusion of the name and title of the initiative is welcome but not necessary. Preference will be given to designers who creatively incorporate the use of the letters VOS into the overall design.
