Television & Film-making
Working in a variety of roles, Kim has frequently worked with producers in early stages of developing treatments. For example:
- Background Consultant: In 2003, in her capacity as the Associate Director of the Victim Offender Reconciliation Program (VORP) Information and Resource Center, Kim was consulted by a producer for Oprah regarding an episode on restorative justice. She spent a few hours on the telephone educating the producer, laying groundwork for what was eventually a very successful program.
- Researcher and Episode Producer: Confrontation(documentary series on A&E, also featured on Oprah). Kim advised and educated producers and screened potential cases for filming. Screening involved meeting with families of murder victims and people convicted and incarcerated for killing the loved ones, ascertaining their suitability for face-to-face dialogs.
