Matthew Palm - Producer/Writer
Here are the opening few minutes from the feature-length documentary film "In Our Own Hands: The Hidden Story of the Jewish Brigade in World War II," which aired nationally on PBS.
I was the Co-producer and Co-writer of this documentary, along with legendary filmmaker Chuck Olin. I produced three overseas shoots in Israel and Europe; developed and edited story arcs and co-wrote the script; supervised all post-production work, including edit, music, and graphics design; and managed all archival research and acquisition in the U.S., Europe, and Israel.
I also spearheaded the film's entire distribution campaign, including screenings at hundreds of film festivals in the U.S. and abroad, and television sales to more than a dozen domestic and international markets.
