Richard was invited to give a Question and Answer session after the screening of his debut feature documentary End of the Road at the Exter Picture House. Other speakers on the FRESH DOCS course included Chris Atkins (Starsuckers, Taking Liberties) , Jerry Rothwell (Heavy Load, A Town of Runners, Donor Unknown), Michele D’Acosta (producer of Biggie and Tupac and Kurt and Courtney) and Franny Armstrong (The Age of Stupid, McLibel).
