Making SHE HAS A NAME: Behind the scenes documentary - PART ONE
What do filmmakers do when they're in lock down?
Revisit footage from the archive and string new content together. Dan, Matt and I have made available, for the first time, a behind-the-scenes documentary of our multi-faceted adventure making the film She Has A Name.
Filmed primarily in Thailand with portions shot in Canada, the BTS documentary highlights the challenges we faced while overseas (including major obstacles to overcome in the days before principle photography was to start) and lines up our location scouting and pre-visualization with the final cut of the film.
Take a look at Part One:
About the film
Jason, a lawyer, poses as a john to build a legal case against the ruthless pimp who is trafficking girls into Thailand. He meets Number 18, a girl forced to work as a prostitute in a busy Bangkok bar, only to discover her testimony is key to proving his case. Can he convince her to risk her life to testify for the sake of justice?
She Has A Name explores the global corruption that allows for human sex trafficking across borders and for criminals to thrive off of this industry.
