StreetSmartVideo is about engaging story-telling. Founded by two award-winning journalists, we find and develop compelling documentaries, non-scripted and scripted projects. We have developed films and series for Showtime, Fox and HBO. We have deep roots in the newspaper and magazine world and with extensive contacts in the worlds of music, sports and crime, we have unique access to those with a story to tell. As producers and directors, we bring our journalism skills to every project. We understand what makes a great story and have the ability to bring it to life.
Our in-depth examination of the death of Tiffany Valiante is one of the lead stories in the Press of Atlantic City. For more than 18 months, we have been embedded with Tiffany's family and attorneys, documenting their eight-year fight to understand how she came to be killed on railroad tracks near her home in Hamilton Township in southern New Jersey. While officials were quick to dismiss her death as suicide, her parents say the teenager was happy and looking forward to her life at college. We continue to follow the case as they look to have the investigation re-opened.
We produced and directed the critically-acclaimed documentary WILD CARD: The Downfall Of a Radio Loudmouth, which premiered on HBO in October, 2020 and can now be found streaming on HBO Max. Our film examined the rise and fall of Craig Carton, the extraordinarily talented co-host of the renowned Boomer & Carton show on New York's WFAN. Craig Carton was one of the most dominant voices on morning radio in the country but resigned in 2017 after being arrested by the FBI. He was subsequently convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy, shocking millions of fans by admitting to a secret gambling addiction and was sentenced to 42 months. In a series of interviews before beginning his sentence, Carton talked candidly about his addiction and the millions of dollars he risked at the blackjack table. We also filmed revealing interviews with key people in his life including co-host Boomer Esiason and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. We talked to Craig after his release. He returned to radio as the host of the hugely-successful Carton & Roberts show on WFAN, but has just become the star of The Carton Show on Fox Sports 1.
Our documentary WILD CARD: The Downfall Of A Radio Loudmouth received extraordinary press coverage. Martin Dunn & Marie McGovern, the co-directors and co-producers, were interviewed across multiple media outlets. In addition, press reviews called our film 'powerful', 'poignant' and 'raw'. The film is on HBO and streaming on HBO Max. For a look at some of the great reviews and press coverage please go to our news page.
We are proud to produce Seaver for Fox. The film featured Tom's last and exclusive interview and moving footage of the late Hall of Fame pitcher and his wife Nancy at their California home and in the vineyard that had become the center of Tom's life. We interviewed fellow Hall of Famers Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench and Hank Aaron and then-Mets owner Fred Wilpon, in addition to Seaver's teammates Ron Swoboda, Jerry Koosman and Ron Darling. Seaver was particularly poignant as it was screened following the news that Tom retired from public life after being diagnosed with dementia. Narrated by lifelong Mets fan Ed Burns, our film was regularly screened on Fox Sports following its premiere on the Fox network. Martin and Marie appeared on Sid Rosenberg's Sid Sports Sunday on WABC radio to discuss their film.
We have developed relationships with journalists and writers on three continents, giving us access to wonderful stories. We are currently developing two sweeping scripted projects, an innovative sports show and a dramatic crime series.
Martin has worked at the highest level for the world's biggest media companies. Under his leadership, Today newspaper in the UK was Newspaper of the Year and as Editor-in-Chief of the New York Daily News he led the newspaper to two Pulitzer Prizes.
Marie is the creator and Executive Producer of the Showtime series 3AM. She found inspiration for the series during her time as New York Daily News Assignment Editor. Her experience in media covers newspapers, radio and television. She has also worked on the business side of the industry, giving her a unique understanding of the value of content creation.
