Sam Green, filmmaker, godfather of live documentary
As a follow up to last week’s post. Thanks to the people at the CRI I had the chance to meet and talk to Oscar nominated documentary maker Sam Green. In the past several years he has switched from traditional to what he calls Live Documentaries. Here’s a recording of that conversation in which Green discusses his Live Documentary practice, from tech, to audience, to inspiration. We start by talking about the software he uses and the discussion goes on from there to an exploration of audience, context, the content/form relationship and why he loves to work with documentary and performance in the live theatre environment.
