About the Film

Synopsis

image46

 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!”

Director & Producer

Director Jeff Arballo has worked in the film, TV, Video production and  Webcast production for over 20 years. Jeff Was also, a former Athletic Director, Teacher and coach. Jeff Spent many years in the sports action world, shooting surf and skateboard documentaries either as a director or camera on projecst and both directed and shot camera for live webcast events. Scramble the Seawolves was a project I Knew My wife and I needed to do to tell the story of the most decorated squadron in Naval Aviation History and of the Vietnam war. 

 Shannon Arballo, This was Shannons first time producing. with almost no knowledge of producing a documentary Shannon quickly took some guidance from Jeff and truly began to come into her own, taking the skills and talents she used as a former college enrollment advisor and crafting her own style of producing and going beyond the normal roll. Shannon can now produce any film or documentary she is called to task for.
