'Harmontown' Director Neil Berkeley Gives His Advice for Shooting Road Documentaries

Publish date:

Harmontown director Neil Berkeley, who made his documentary as he went on a podcast tour with Community creator Dan Harmon, talks to MovieMaker Magazine about the film and his advice for anyone shooting road documentaries.

He says, "Shoot everything, because eventually you’ll get what you need and eventually everyone will relax when cameras are there. So just start rolling. And find a skeleton crew you can trust: a DP that knows how to handle media and get it safely back, an editor that can sift through it and knows everything you’ve done, a producer that can handle the nuts and bolts. Find that little group of people that can do their jobs very well, so that you can tell your story."
