Thus far on our project Tucker and I have done preliminary research on Indian Point, interviewed Alfred Meyer, and Tucker has gone to Peekskill, NY to document the SAPE2016 rally. While Tucker’s documentation is easy to show visually (though cold) my work has been predominantly on the research side. While Tucker’s research is much more hands on, my research looks more like this:
But I have found quite a good deal of interesting archival footage and documents that we can incorporate (once we get permission) into our documentary. Including this WNYC interview with Scott Walderman.
This letter sent from Andrew Cuomo warning energy CEO and Commissioners of the dangers of Indian Point.
Moving forward plan to collect more archival footage and documents pertinent to the Indian Point Energy Facility, and we plan to go shoot at the site itself this Wednesday. We are not sure what to expect, but we will do our best investigative journalism. We are also both working to secure at least two more interviews from experts in the area. Tucker is aiming to make a connection with some of the activists he met at the SAPE rally while I am reaching out to professional medical researchers at the NYU Langone Center for Medical Research. We will update with more behind the scenes action (process photos this time I promise) when we make our trek out to the power plant site itself.
