A feature length documentary about Marion Hammer the lobbyist behind Florida's gun laws.
Stand Your Ground: Florida's Gun Laws and How They Got That Way - A feature length documentary about Marion Hammer - the lobbyist behind nearly all of Florida’s gun laws passed within the last two decades.
Marion Hammer is a four foot eleven grandmother and was the first women president of the National Riffle Association. Since the 1970s she has consolidated the support of the National Riffle Associate members and organized campaigns to pass broad gun rights in Florida.
Her most recent efforts included the “Docs versus Glocks” statute which prohibited physicians from asking patients whether they owned or kept guns in the home which was recently declared unconstitutional by a United States District Court Judge, and the “Stand Your Ground” statute which gained national attention after the killing of Trayvon Martin.
What does my funding support?
Post production services are expensive and we will need to rent facilities and hire additional editorial staff.
We think it’s important for a film to sound right. We would like to be able to optimize the sound of the film for each distribution method (theatre, DVD, streaming).
To conduct interviews we will need to crisscross the state, we will need to purchase gas and lodging. Additionally, once the film is finished, we will need to travel to film festivals in the hope of having the film picked up by a distributor.
Equipment and Expendables
We will need to purchase additional sound, video, and storage media for the footage we shoot.
News stations own the rights to existing interviews and soundbites. We would like to splice in some of this existing material into the film.
