@wavelengthprods: What is your biggest concern with the future?


Jenifer Westphal, film producer and president of Wavelength Productions

@wavelengthprods: What is your biggest concern with the future? When I first got involved in the business, many said to me that the only way to make money in doc films was to get into crime dramas. That was the definition of success. I have nothing against them, but very few were that interesting to me. I am very proud of the documentaries we’ve been involved with too date – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, Knock Down the House, and the soon to be released Where’s My Roy Cohn? (Seems I’m involved with a lot of films with question marks!) I feel that we as a society need more NiceCore in our lives – so you’ll usually find me asking, “what’s wrong with feeling good?” Most of the films we produce fall into this category. I want people to believe in the goodness of humanity again, because its alive and well. So my concern is that the belief is that the only way to be successful in documentary filmmaking is to entertain through drama. I believe you can have both – create a feel good doc that also entertains. To me, that’s a successful doc.
