in the style of Louise Theroux. His friendly, bumbling way of questioning some of the most antagonistic people on earth, seems to work. I just watched his documentary on the ‘most hated family in America’ and I’ve seen most of his other programmes, I think they are entertaining and informative, although I sometimes feel sorry for his subjects as he’s so obviously taking the piss out of them and they have (for their own reasons, obviously) opened-up their lives to his scrutiny. He has amazing opportunities to not just pasively play witness but become involved in the lives of some of the weirdest people on the planet.

I say ‘done’, what I mean by that is: I wrote a script for a two minute film and had two classes on the craft, which I of course have to go away and practice. And I know documentaries don’t necessarily have ‘scripts’ like dramas, but the questions and intro and conclusion has to be there, so I think the classes helped. Next class: fiming with a big, posh expensive camera, so I think that’ll be useful too.
It’s a long time since I looked at this goal. I started a filmmaking course last week though, so I am re-inspired, just too busy to really put the effort in. Still, I have plenty of time to get all my ideas on paper (or film) hopefully, so it’ll have to sit on the list til I am less busy.
watching documentaries and there have been some amazing ones produced over the last few years, but there are still so many stories to explore I think it would be rude not to make my own one. I have a ticklist of four of five ideas, but have absolutely no technical expertise at all. It’s always an ambition I have had, but will be on the backburner for a while yet.
