BODYSNATCHERS OF NEW YORK
Producer | 1x90' | Channel 4
WINNER OF THE GRIERSON AWARD FOR MOST ENTERTAINING DOCUMENTARY
A highly cinematic documentary charting a macabre mystery that unfolds as the lives of a handful of starkly different, seemingly unconnected characters are intimately drawn together by a shocking crime involving over a thousand mutilated corpses in a tale of twenty-first century body snatching in the city of New York.
I developed and secured exclusive access to all the key contributors and was shooting producer on the production. Due to a minimal budget I was heavily involved in the edit, cutting with the Director for the first 6 weeks of the Edit before the Editor came on board.
“A terrific film...at times it feels like a top-notch police procedural but the powerful testimony of the victims' families keeps it grounded in an all-too-grim reality”
“A jaw-dropping tale, stunningly crafted”
Louis Theroux - Grierson Award Judge
