It has become a natural transition for those in news to want to dig deeper and expand on the stories they tell on television. That holds true for The Insite’s People to Watch: Danieal Malveaux (blue shirt) and Brandon Allen (gray shirt). They are two newsmen who want to broaden their form of journalism with documentaries. The duo, both employees of KHOU TV, are moving into the field that cuts through the chase and give you the gritty reality of life. And that move has already begun with their first documentary being completed two months ago. It’s appropriately entitled ‘Jena 6’ and it examines the protest by thousands of African Americans in the small city of Jena, Louisiana. There’s no need to explain what happened there because everyone who’s seen a television or read a newspaper know the turmoil in the community. Malveaux says, “we want to let the people tell their story.” The newly anointed biographers have two other documentaries in the works that will take you to Prairie View and central Texas but I will leave it up to them to reveal the details. I also had a chance to watch the Jena piece and it is excellent. It gives you a complete journey from the beginning to the end of the saga that captured national attention. But the Insite wasn’t the first. The documentary has already played for students at Prairie View and at the Hip Hop Summit in San Antonio where Allen and Malveaux gave a lecture on film making. Malveaux is no stranger to the Insite. He is a Louisiana homeboy and former co-worker at FOX 26 where he served as a video editor. Malveaux also dedicated the film to his mother who recently passed in October. The guys tell me the documentary will be available for public viewing real soon as they prepare to launch their website. The spot on the web will be named after their production company 3 Points Entertainment. Hey guys, thanks for dropping by The Insite and the best of luck with your documentary future!
