Undercover video: The future of filmmaking

Undercover audio and video recordings are a frequent part of the modern political news cycle, from James O’Keefe to the “47 percent” video to audio of a private conversation in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky campaign office.

Filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, who recorded undercover video for his new documentary, “They Come to America II: The Cost of Amnesty,” says the world better get used to it.

“This is the future of the world,” Lynch, founder and CEO of TV360Media, told POLITICO. “You gotta watch what you say and what you do every second of the day.” It’s also, Lynch says, the future of political movies.

“Is this the future of filmmaking? Absolutely,” Lynch said. “And that’s a terrible thing. Everyone is going to be terrified.”

Lynch, who used sunglasses with video recording capabilities in his documentary to make the case that America’s borders remain dangerously porous, has been able to justify his method, however.
