Out On The Border
We've just finished some initial location photography on an interesting new documentary film about border and immigration issues for Washington D.C.'s Sautter Films.
There have been plenty of stories and articles in the national media about the need for immigration reform and Arizona's controversial SB 1070 bill, but this production goes a bit deeper to explore the difference between black and white solutions usually offered by politicians and cable TV personalities--and the complex reality happening on the ground.
Award-winning filmmaker Chris Sautter , DP Keith Page and sound man Mike Andrews spent a week traveling southern Arizona talking with Tea Partiers, ranchers, border Samaritans, writers, residents and law enforcement officials.
We're shooting with the PDW F800 XDCAM HD camera system. It should be a fascinating look at the issue.
