Middle Men, Policy and Broken Windows A Project of Documentaries

See our milestones below:

Middle Men" explores modern day effects policing and its treatment toward minorities.

It spotlights police officers as "middlemen," sworn to protect, but governed by statistics and quotas.

While discussing how their interactions operate in a tainted criminal justice system we speak with surviving families of unarmed victims of color who continue to fight for their loved ones legacy despite non-indictments and not guilty verdicts.

Overall, this film is able to chip away at the blue wall while providing perspective to the viewer.

$13,100 covers 3 weeks of editing services and sound, two huge steps in the post production process.

  • $8,100 Video Editing ($2,700 per 1 week x 3 weeks).
  • $5,000 Sound ($250 per day x 5 days per week x 4 weeks).

Middle Men exposes contributing elements that played a role in the unarmed deaths of five New York victims set against the greater backdrop of modern day policing policies embedded in discrimination. One discriminatory policy prevalent in the now deceased Eric Garner case is termed 'Broken Windows'.

Broken Windows is driven by 'Compstat' an operational management system driven by performance measures that closely resembles metrics militarized policing. Law enforcement in our film not it as a highly pressurized quota and statistical system that creates friction in police departments, crime data manipulation, and demands targeting in minority urban communities.
