A little over 4 years ago, we at Arballo Entertainment embarked on a very special mission as we began production on Scramble the Seawolves at the Seawolf Reunion, Dallas TX 2014. It didn’t take us long before we felt the overwhelming sense of pride and responsibility in bringing the captivating story of the HA(L)-3 Navy Seawolves to life! We had always hoped that this film would have a meaningful impact on the men of HA(L)-3 and their families. Little did we know, however, just how much our lives would be changed simply by having the opportunity to learn of their story and develop friendships that will last our lifetime.
Over 80% of the film and pictures used are all ORIGINAL Seawolf footage, converted and contributed for Scramble the Seawolves. With over 300 individual financial contributors through two Indiegogo Campaigns, contributions through our Fiscal Sponsor and a whole lot of prayer and encouragement along the way, we accomplished our mission and have completed a beautiful, emotional film that tells the story of a special group of American Heroes that very few know exist.
“Just received my copy of "Scramble the Seawolves". Excellent tribute to all of our brothers! Hats off to Arballo Entertainment!”
