That's the name of documentary project that will be producing a series of documentaries about 10 American death row exonerees in April and May. Here's more from One For Ten producer Laura Shacham.
I'm writing to tell you about a new interactive series of documentary films telling the stories of innocent people who were on death row in the US. The project is called One For Ten and is a first in live storytelling - all the films will be free to watch and free to share upon release. Over five weeks, a small team will be travelling the breadth of the States, producing two films a week for immediate distribution. All out of an RV, their mobile production office.
They're trying to raise £30,000 to get the project on the road so please take a look at their campaign and share far and wide. Some words from the filmmakers below if you're able to pass on.
One For Ten will be a series of short documentary films telling the stories of ten innocent people who spent an average of ten years each on death row in the USA. All of these people were locked up and facing death for crimes they did not commit. And they were all eventually exonerated and released.
Each of the films will look at a different failing in the American capital justice system that led to the wrongful conviction and incarceration of each of our contributors.
A “democratic” documentary – a brand new form of filmmaking. Over 5 weeks in April and May this year, the One For Ten team will travel the breadth of the United States in an RV. We will film, edit and release two films online a week, “live” from the road. This is an entirely unprecedented form of documentary making and we’re doing it this way to make sure that YOU can come on the journey with us.
We want you to shape the films – ask the questions, give us feedback, get involved in the debate and help share the films far and wide.
