Aside from being a host on Indy Mogul, Griffin Hammond is the director and creator of "Sriracha" (2013), an award-winning documentary about the internationally renowned hot sauce that is available on VOD: https://amzn.to/2UlM18g (prime video) and https://apple.co/2G4qqgC (iTunes).

In this episode, we discuss Griffin's experience filming short documentaries about the Hilary Clinton, Bernie Sanders & Donald Trump political campaigns for Bloomberg news during the 2016 Presidential election.

We then put these lessons to action by filming a one day documentary in the heart of New York city's Chinatown. Griffin shows us how to create a story and shoot coverage for unscripted and unplanned documentary filmmaking.
