London Doc Summit 2013 Success…. and one delegates first film…

This weekend we held the London Doc Summit and the feedback has been awesome. You can read below. One delegate contacted me about his very first attempt at doc filmmaking, and I said I would share this on the blog. Here’s what he said…

‘Just a quick email to say thank you for this weekend. It was so unbelievably helpful. Especially the social media lecture you gave yesterday morning.It’s a warm up to the feature length one I’ve just started shooting about The Bilderberg Group. I had no idea how to use the camera, sound equipment or editing software to its full potential so I thought why not make a short doc as practice. I, for one, am not a person to let a place like Southbank Skatepark get moved so people can make profit, so I got in touch with the skaters and they thought it would be a good idea to try and capture the vibe in a 15 minute film. Hopefully it will contribute to the saving of the skatepark.’

You can hear in his voice, and it was evident in the other filmmakers present, that Doc filmmaking attracts people of passion, dedication and a strong sense of right and wrong. It was a true pleasure and inspiration to spend a couple of days with them.
