David Deschamps

David Deschamps first conceived of the idea for a humorous documentary on America’s election system while serving as Senior Researcher for John Nichols’ JEWS FOR BUCHANAN (The New Press), an irreverent look at the election of 2000. He was a researcher for William Martin’s WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE: THE RISE OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT IN AMERICA (Broadway Books). A former staff writer for TIME Magazine’s Education Program, Deschamps has edited several political-science anthologies published by Pearson Prentice Hall, including a collection of readings on the 2004 presidential election. He studied film scoring at Berklee College of Music and is the co-director of WHAT I DID FOR LOVE, a forthcoming feature-length documentary on the joys and struggles that face musicians in America.
