Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen was filmed by two documentary film makers in their 2012 production, “The Big Fix”.

This is the first video to surface after Mateen fired at some 100 people and killed 49 of them at a gay night bar in down town Orlando on Sunday.

The 29 year old has been captured using hidden cameras.

Mateen was filmed while he was working as a night guard at a beach in Pensacola, Florida following an oil spill in 2010.

He was then employed with G4S security company.

“No one gives a s*** here, no one gives a s*** here, Mateen is seen as telling Tickell in the 36th minute of the film whose running time is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

“Everybody is just out to get paid. They are like hoping for more oil to come out and more people to complain so they will have jobs. Because once people get laid off here, it’s going to suck for them. They want more disaster to happen. Because that’s where their money-making is. … It’s all about money,” Mateen says.

The documentary exposes the corruption and cover up attempts in the aftermath of the April 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico following the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig.

The film also focussed on the plight of the residents affected by the oil spill and the false promises of oil and gas major BP.

The film directed by Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell had a special screening in the ‘Work in Progress’ category in 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

It won the best documentary award in two of the 13 film festivals it was screened.

It was released in the US in 2012.
