I’m watching DOPE, which is a series dedicated to drugs and how they’re made, trafficked, and sold.
We have doc crews filming people cooking giant vats of heroin, interviewing cartel members, and riding along with illegal trafficking trips. They also travel with special ops drug task forces in high risk search and seizures.
How do doc crews do this? What protection do they have? How can they film illegal substances and simultaneously protect the identities of the people they’re filming and themselves? Would they be liable in a seizure if they’re riding along?
