We spent last week with a handful of really terrific interviews and production on the Visual Law Project film. We filmed:
- The head of the Connecticut Department of Corrections, interviewing him about their so-called “supermax” prison and the system at large;
- A reverend who works to eliminate US-sponsored torture in prisons domestically and abroad;
- A psychiatrist who worked with inmates in the Connecticut prison system;
- A former inmate who we interviewed before, who walked us through the housing projects where he was shot at age 14;
- In New York, an architect who designs prisons and buildings for the justice system.
Really incredible footage, shot mostly by our go to guy Joe Freidman as well as myself for #5 and B-Camera work. We’re starting to edit and create the story in earnest right now. Lots of great stuff, just have to figure out how to put it together now – which is the fun part or course.
More from the editing front in the days to come!
