The global private security industry employs twice as many people as governments have police officers. In NYC- museums, dept stores, clubs, hospitals, parks, apt bldgs -you cant escape. So where do they get their etiquette training and glock certification? There are a plethora of NYC vocational security schools. I randomly met Katibu while he was finishing lunch with a friend I was meeting, so took the opportunity to film his small story. Katibu Hatcher loves it and feels like he is making a difference as the director of First Security based in Times Square. We learn his story from Connecticut to NYC, take a tour, view a training class and learn how one chooses the best glock for training. Pretty surreal. And I thought I was just getting lunch.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
