I was contacted by a producer name Lyle Dohl this week. He works for a company called Scott Free, owned by Ridley Scott. In 2011 Scott Free produced a documentary called “Life In A Day”. Here is a clip from You Tube that you can view: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT_UmBHMYzg
This documentary inspired Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck who are in the process of producing a new documentary which will feature
patients who are facing a terminal prognosis and have moved past the point where they are seeking treatment.
They were searching for information for the documentary and found our website and contacted me. Here is the information that Lyle sent to me.
“I’m searching for individuals in the Los Angeles area who are living with a terminal illness to be the subject in an untitled documentary series for cable television. Our verité documentary project is looking for compelling individuals, and the people surrounding them, who are open to sharing their story and hospice experience documented. Again, LA area is preferred, but if it’s the right person, we’re very open to talking.
Our approach uses very small crews with minimal equipment so as to be as unobtrusive as possible. The fly-on-the-wall method allows for authentic storytelling – our intention is to honor, celebrate and respect their life.”
The foundation is not involved in this project in any way. We are simply passing the information on to you. The information above is all the information we have. If you have any questions about the project you will need to contact Lyle.
