#picbod’s Matt Johnston met with documentary filmmaker Adam Hopkins recently to add some real world experience to the ‘negotiation’ theme and task we have been exploring this week. As an established practitioner Adam Hopkins has produced films including ‘Wild Things’, ‘Alice and Her Six Dads’, Neighbourhood Watched’ and ‘Trawlermen’ for the BBC, Channel 4 and National Geographic among others. These projects consistently involve Adam stepping into unknown situations and meeting his subjects under differing circumstances, he must also ensure he tells both an accurate and compelling story often from only brief meetings.
In class we will be first watching Adam’s production ‘Wild Things’ produced for Channel 4, before listening to the interview and viewing his 5 top tips video.
As well as dropping by Adam’s blog you can also follow him on twitter here.
