Sundance Bound

I am pleased and proud to announce that a project I worked on over the course of several years is slated to premiere at Sundance.

CRIME AFTER CRIME - The story of a woman wrongfully imprisoned for life, directed by Yoav Potash

YouTube - CRIME AFTER CRIME trailer (Official Sundance Selection)

I shot footage in the prison, at the attorney's offices and homes, and some interviews with witnesses. It's a compelling story with some amazing twists. I wish Yoav the best of luck on this. He stuck with it for five hard years.

Congrats Richard! Are you going to be going to Sundance? I saw another compelling doc on a wrongly imprisoned person in Mexico. It was shot by two Berkeley students and man, talk about a joke of a justice system.

Crime After Crime looks interesting. Any plans for going out to broadcast or DVD?

I'm currently working on a feature documentary that I hope will eventually be in some festivals.

-Garrett

Cool. What did you shoot with? What format did you pick? Care to share why?

Sorry for the late response guys... been busy with another project.

The director started shooting the project back in... 2004/5. Shooting 24p with the Panny DVX100. When I came along, I had just purchased my XL2 - so all the stuff I shot was with the XL2 at 24p. Some of the very last footage was shot in HD - I forget which camera. The entire film took more than five years as a project.

Here's an interview clip with the director.

I don't know if I'll make it to Sundance. I hope to. I wasn't principal DP - but a lot of my footage is in the film. A lot of the prison footage, and interviews with the Attorneys.
