The Least of My Brothers

https://mattkprovideo.com/2015/07/18/the-least-of-my-brothers/

This is a documentary I spent 5 years researching and producing!

This was my whole life the entire time.

It is the story of the desegregation of Vidor , Texas and the homicide investigation of the first African American to move there.

I didn’t find the answers I thought I was going to find. But I did find a fascinating story.

I shot it on BetaCam SP and edited on the Avid Media Composer and some photoshop and after effects. I finished it in 1999.  I then re cut it using Final Cut Pro and some new footage shot on a Sony VX2100 DV Camera.

I shot this on BetaCam SP with some shots from a VHS camera.  I combined the footage I shot with newsreel footage from KFDM.  I edited everything on the AVID Media Composer 1000 between 1997 and 1999.

A few years later I re edited it to make it shorter and hopefully tighter. I used Final Cut Pro 7 and some After Effects/ Photoshop work.  I also shot some new “B-Roll” of Vidor on a Sony VX2100 mini DV camera.
