Shooting And Co-Producing A Piece For USAToday And The Marshall Project
It has been a real pleasure to work with a female-only crew making this important piece about a friend chicken restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. Hot Chicken Takeover is a fair chance employer, hiring those affected by a criminal record. In a situation where roughly every third American is affected by a criminal record, be it by the imprisonment of a family member or being charged by a traffic violation, this is not just a small subset of the country we're talking about, but this is America. Working on this story was a really eyeopening experience and I would like to thank our amazing team of women for making it happen: director Katie Galloway, co-producer Mariana Price, editor Lauren Knapp and one of the protagonists Shannon Wilson.
