2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew James’ Street Fighting Man

14 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Symbolically speaking, I wouldn’t be out of line if I compared Motor city as a sister city to Damascus. If you group docs in Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s Detropia, Brenna Sanchez and Tom Putnam’s Burn, and next in line Street Fighting Man, this is one city that is hurting real bad. Andrew James might be know to docuphiles for his 2009, Tiff preemed Cleanfix, and directly after this he found a trio of justice seeking protagonists for what will have been a half decade odyssey to fruition. It began with a successful Kickstarter campaign and has since found support from: the Hot Docs Pitch Forum, Film Independent, the Independent Filmmaker Project (Ifp), the San Francisco Film Society, and of course, the Sundance Institute. Don’t be surprised if Sundance programmers make a citizen’s arrest on this item.

This article by Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez about the distribution of their Detroit firefighter documentary Burn originally appeared in our Fall, 2013 print edition. It is appearing online for the first time. “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” — Mark Twain As filmgoers are increasingly flooded with new media options to keep them at home, the prevailing theory is that the days of theatrical releases for independent films are in their last slow throes. We disagree because we just spent the last year filling 300- to 2,000-seat theaters in 170 cities with our firefighter documentary Burn. We […] »

At the Canon-sponsored panel “Let’s Talk Docs” session at the 2014 Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles, non-fiction cinematographers Nicola Marsh ("20 Feet From Stardom," "Burn"), Rick Rowley ("Dirty Wars"), Nick Higgins ("The Crash Reel," "The Lion's Mouth") and Jerry Ricciotti (HBO’s "Vice") shared stories from the frontlines.

Here are their top tips: 1. Your gear should help, not hinder you -- and the best camera might not be the most expensive one. "The first thing I think about is how long the camera is going to be on my shoulder. It’s nice to shoot on a Pl lens, but I can’t have that on my shoulder all day. I don’t want to have »
