"Video Sentencing Letter"
When a case (or your budget) demands something simpler than a full-on mitigation documentary, but still packed with the ever important emotionally evocative images, a "video sentencing letter" may fit your needs. In this highly effective sentencing tool, the client writes the "script" (i.e., his/her letter to the judge) and we do the rest. In this example, the client was charged with re-entry after deportation and needed to tell his story of "cultural assimilation". The judge needed to see, firsthand, the client's cultural and familial ties that motivated him to illegally re-entry the US. This 3 minute video requires less production time and resources and most importantly, was instrumental in winning the client a dramatically reduced sentence.
