's coverage of the Chris Watts murders stands apart as the most comprehensive, accurate, and compelling version of what actually occurred Sunday night and Monday morning at 2825 Saratoga Trail, Frederick Colorado on August 13th, 2018.The TWO FACE book series
is the definitive account of the Watts Family Murders. In spite of these efforts, the mainstream media (and Weld County) appear content to recycle Watts' deceptive version of events.
True crime documentaries, like HLN's "Killer Dad" and ID's "Family Man, Family Murderer", thus far have not even begun to scratch the surface, (or interrogate the evidence), of what actually happened in the Watts case .
Isn't it time a proper documentary, from someone with expert knowledge, covered the Chris Watts case?YES! AND WITH YOUR HELP, I PLAN TO DO JUST THAT:
Since covering true crime as a full-time author, I've become increasingly appalled at the documentary coverage of high-profile cases. From cold cases like JonBenet Ramsey all the way to the latest documentaries on Chris Watts, the quality is invariably shabby. The producers seem to do little more than a tip-of-the-hat to the actual meat-and-potatoes of these cases.
I recently watched the excellent series on Netflix called The Family
. It is based around the narrative of investigative journalist Jeff Sharlet. Sharlet produced the series and also appears in it to narrate the often complex backstory. SOME BACKGROUND:
A few years ago, I approached filmmakers and had several high-level discussions with a view to converting many of my crime narratives to the medium of television. In some cases, they offered contracts to buy the rights to my books. In the end, I turned these down because I didn't have confidence that any of these producers had the gut-instinct to do the narratives justice.
I also negotiated with a producer based in New York, affiliated with HBO. In 2018, a major American network stole some key elements used in one of my narrative series. When confronted with these infringements, the network offered a licensing agreement, and agreed to credit my work, but refused to pay for their appropriation.
I've spent time reaching out to part-time podcasters and videographers. Thus far, it's been very stop-start. Some aren't au fait with true crime. Others, who are, don't have the freedom or the time to take on a full-time project. The best solution seems to be to that I write, produce and direct a documentary myself. With your help.
This GoFundMe, with a goal of $30,000 in seed capital, will allow me to travel to the US, purchase equipment, and film on location for 3-4 weeks. The documentary will be rooted in the research found on CrimeRocket.com
and throughout the TWO FACE book series
Every donation, no matter the size, will get me closer to exposing the truth about Watts to the masses. I need your help, and appreciate all of my True Crime Rocket Scientists. Please donate, or share this GoFundMe if you cannot donate, yourself. The time has come.WHO'S WITH ME?
