Season 1 consists of eight freestanding episodes about captives, each one set in a different country and centred on a specific hostage situation. Eyewitnesses re-tell the events of the episode and authentic broadcast footages is intercut with reconstruction witnesses they tell their stories linearly, breaking down the period of captivity day by day.
The season has an all-star team on board including Director and Producer Doug Liman ( The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow ). We are proud to say that Paul Holland edited Episode 5 – Chechnya.
“Captive” has been reviewed to have “ranks well above the typical cable-TV documentary. It is cinematic and slickly produced, with production value visible in nearly every frame and equally impressive from a journalistic standpoint”. We can’t wait to watch the series. Congratulation’s Paul!
Paul Holland recently edited #DeathPenaltyFail – One is Too Many for Sundog Pictures, directed by Bruce Goodison.
Meet Anthony ‘Ray’ Hinton, a man who spent 30 years on Alabama’s death row. Ray was innocent. #DeathPenaltyFail explores a very human story of loss, and unpicks the devastating impact that the death penalty can have. But Ray’s story is not entirely unique, we learn that there are many others who have suffered the consequences of this flawed system. A total of 156 people have been exonerated from death row in the U.S. The question is: How many innocent people have been executed?
Congratulations Paul Holland and Sundog Pictures on this important film.
