HOSTAGE: DO OR DIE is a 6 episode series I directed for the Investigation Discovery Channel. It is a suspenseful, tense and action-packed docu-series designed to put viewers in the middle of some of the most intense Hostage standoffs in history. Using real-world interviews from victims and the negotiators involved in the stories we created powerful, cinematic sequences to support the twists and turns of the stories. A true hybrid scripted / non-scripted show.. we wrote full dialogue scenes for many of the sequences in the show and I got to work with incredible actors to bring the scenes to life. The actors and I spent lots of time researching and rehearsing to maintain a level of authenticity to our work on this show.
