So, we’re getting ready to shoot some more interviews this weekend for the Yale Visual Law Project film.
I guess I haven’t really been describing the film at all, but I think I can talk about some of it now. The topic can be sensitive for our subjects so we’re making a big deal about what we’re filming. So, briefly, we’re making a project that follows the lives of people in the prison system, specifically so-called “supermax” prisons. To that end, we’ve been interviewing family members of inmates, former inmates, department of corrections officials, and various experts. Again, more details as the production moves along!
Hopefully our camera will be fixed by the weekend, but we’re also enlisting the work of the incredibly experienced and talented Joe Friedman – NewYork-based cinematographer.
