Stunt Coordinator Jeremy Sample & The Making of "O.G."

March 05, 2018

"O.G." is a prison film made in prison.  With Jeffrey Wright as its star and its female director, Madeleine Sackler, they will take you through lock-downs and pat-downs. The filmmakers behind “O.G.” tried to capture the hopes and despair of the inmates, who played most of the roles. The culmination of the stunt work Jeremy coordinated was the race riot in the chow hall. Sackler had a day to shoot it. This involved all the participants—some eighty inmates, the full crew of thirty, the guards—packed into a dining hall about an acre in size, with eighty tables, each with four stools, everything bolted to the floor. There wasn’t much security on hand. Please read more about the upcoming making of this movie to be released later this year. Congratulations Jeremy on this ground-breaking film.
