Portland 2015 68 mins.

If a court reporter is doing their job well, they go virtually unnoticed. The goal is to capture the record without becoming a part of it. Ironically, that very ability means that court reporting flies under the radar. For the Record tracks several stenographers as they strive to break the Guinness World Record and seize the title of World’s Fastest Court Reporter. It also explores the steno culture, the connections people make as interpreters for the hard of hearing, and charts the history of these keepers of the record. Marc Greenberg has spent 20 years working within the court reporting industry, returning to his earlier passion of filmmaking to tell the story of a little-known world.
