Bang For Your Buck

“Bang for your Buck” was our first internationally acclaimed short film. Oxfam was lobbying hard at the United Nations general assembly for a comprehensive arms trade treaty. They wanted more than a shock and awe flyer with facts and stats.  They wanted a documentary short film from a country in Africa experiencing pandemic arms trafficking problems. We did some research, wrote a script, and pitched it to their head office. They loved it. We worked within their budgetary constraints and made a film that took us from rural Burundi to the headquarters of the United Nations in New York. Not long after the UN voted into law a comprehensive arms trade treaty and we celebrated at Tribeca.
