Follow the Yellow Doc Road with Simon Chinn
a DCTV Presents Master Class
co-presented with BAFTA New York

Oscar-winning Producer Simon Chinn has been instrumental in raising the profile of documentaries, proving that audiences want to watch documentaries that have compelling characters and really powerful narratives.

Simon Chinn's first theatrical documentary Man On Wire won an Oscar in 2008. His second, Project Nim, opened Sundance in 2011, and his production of Searching For Sugar Man won an Oscar in 2013.

"I want to be ambitious with documentaries, and make documentaries that people want to see and that compete on the same level as fiction films. Sugar Man, Imposter and Man On Wire in terms of box office have shown it's possible," Chinn says.

"Getting people to go watch a documentary is a real challenge, but it's a challenge I relish," Chinn says. "The best documentaries deliver the same things fictional films do - a means of telling stories, delivering narrative and character and emotion."

Simon will share and discuss clips from his work, moderated by Molly Thompson.

Molly Thompson, BAFTA Chair of the Television Committee, launched and runs A&E IndieFilms, the network's feature documentary division, and has been responsible for many high profile documentaries including the division's original productions Jesus Camp, American Teen, The September Issue, a film on Anna Wintour by R.J. Cutler. Other A&E IndieFilms include Oscar nominee Murderball, My Kid Could Paint That, and an Emmy-winning The Tillman Story.
