This episode of BEHIND THE LENS is one you don’t want to miss as we welcome two-time Edward R. Murrow Award winner ALEX QUADE who talks about her experiences embedding with Special Ops units in Iraq for what would become the riveting documentary DANGER CLOSE. In talking about Alex and DANGER CLOSE, Former Commanding General U.S. Army Special Forces, Major General Mike Repass, (retired), had this to say: “Alex Quade is this generation’s Joe Galloway, who tells an intensely personal story. . . Alex Quade is the real deal. . .and is uniquely qualified to tell their intensely-lived, extraordinary stories.” We are privileged to have her as a guest on BEHIND THE LENS. Returning to the show and joining Alex at the top of the hour are DANGER CLOSE directors/producers DAVID SALZBERG and CHRISTIAN TUREAUD. Listen as Alex talks about the experience of embedding with a Special Ops unit in the battlefield while shooting video footage, with David and Christian picking up the mantle to give insight into then putting Alex’s footage into a workable story format. And hear some exclusive behind the scenes stories about recent screenings and public reaction and appreciation for the film.
Then listen as director/writer/producer JAMIELYN LIPPMAN joins us at the halfway mark of the show talking about her latest documentary, WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS – A Documentary About Postpartum Depression. An interesting discussion as Jamielyn talks about the genesis of the film, the process of developing a cogent and comprehensive storyline, the editing process, subject matter information learned and imparted, and something indie filmmakers will appreciate and benefit from – obtaining distribution.
