November 19, 2016 by Boris Poonia

The Netflix hit TV series “Making a Murderer” took the public by storm when it was first released in 2015. In light of their recent success, award winning filmmakers, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, responsible for the hit TV show were invited to INBOUND16 for a Spotlight session to talk about their experience and challenges they encountered while making the 10 part documentary series. In case you missed it, here’s the entire spotlight session in tweets.

There was a lot of excitement pre-event

Not to sound boastful but I finished it within a day 😎 💪
On why they ended up partnering with Netflix

“Making a Murderer” being an unconventional look at the justice system, the Colombia University grads were asked why they pursued such a project

They went on to drop some serious knowledge 🙌 👌


It took an entire decade’s worth of sacrifice and dedication to bring the show to the masses.They shared a few motivations which kept them going throughout the filming of the series

So inspiring was their Spotlight, even a wild spearow decided to drop by 🙈

Alas hearing about their experiences some in the audience were reminded about events earlier in the day


At the other end of the spectrum however, some looked the duo’s experience from a different perspective

They even dropped some hints about season 2 😻

In the end they left us with an awe inspiring quote, hoping to inspire many after sharing their journey creating “Making a Murderer”
Reach for the stars! 🙌 🌟 @filmgreek @allHs #INBOUND16
