My Documentaries

 

From dramatic issues to reality with a comedic spin, my documentaries aim to capture a moment in time and present it in a new, challenging way for todays audience. 

2nd Amendment

Produced by James Dann & Richard Morel

USA

From the densely populated neighbourhoods of Philadelphia where people lay awake at night and play ‘Gunshot or firework’ to the remote Maryland hunters whose lives depend on their firearms for protection, ‘2nd Amendment’ shatters the headlines and exposes the human face of the gun debate. 

To date 2nd Amendment has screened at Genesis Cinema, a panel at the University of Hertfordshire and Hackney Picturehouse.
