Ep 91 How to Make a hit Documentary Feature, with Bros: After the Screaming Stops director Joe Pearlman and hosts Giles Alderson & Christian James

This week we chat to ace documentary filmmaker Joe Pearlman about how he makes his documentaries including the riducously popular recently released doc on Bros. How he started in the business and worked at well known Fulwell 73, got his foot in the door and started making indie docs. Living with Mo Farah the Olympic gold winning Marathon runner whilst he made the documentary on him. How he was asked to make the Bros doc and his original opinion. We ask if the doc was staged or is it all real? How you can make a doc about twins from an 80’s boy band and hit the zeitgeist in the U.K. and have a very successful and incredibly talked about feature film.. Why the third member of Bros wasn’t in the doc or even talked about. How to actually shoot a doc, where to put cameras and who shoots what.how to film the interviews themselves. How to work with the interviewees and what is a great way to edit the films WATCH – BROS: AFTER THE SCREAMING STOPS https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0001qyv/bros-after-the-screaming-stops FOLLOW Joe on Twitter here: @joe_pearlman BUZZFEED FAV PODCASTS LINK Please do us a favour and recommend us to Buzzfeed.
