Real Lawyer Reacts to A Time To Kill

https://mattkprovideo.com/2019/02/20/real-lawyer-reacts-to-a-time-to-kill/

This a great video with a lot of insightful points. I did research on the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) for a documentary on a murder that I (THOUGHT) was committed by the Klan ( but it probably wasn’t).

I did a lot of research into the Klan and their beliefs ( I am NOT a supremacist but I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion …)

According to the Klan members I spoke with, the Klan as presented in this movie are very inaccurate.

According to THEM they would never admit those 2 white guys who raped a black girl. They say they would never admit anyone who had CONSENSUAL relations with an African American person, much less rape, much less rape of an underage girl.

Those 2 characters never showed any sympathy for white supremacist beliefs, yet would want to immediately be made members, and have the klan stick up for their right to violate KKK rules.

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.
