Joe is a criminal defense lawyer. One of my favorite clients I’ve ever worked with because he brings such a positive attitude to the set. Filmmaking is truly a collaborative process and the success or failure of a project really depends on everybody’s commitment to good content.
We wanted to do something unique from the usual lawyer office talking head piece so we used the boxing ring as a metaphor. Boxing is not just about strength but also agility and strategy. Lawyering, he told me, is pretty similar.
