GDP. Where People Count.

The NFB’s GDP team put together a rather neat little ‘behind the scenes’ documentary turning the cameras back at us the directors/photographers of the multi-media web documentary project I worked on earlier this year (See previous photo essays here & here).

And here’s the NFB’s blurb on the video:
Closing film of the GDP webdocumentary. A 23-minute piece which navigates between ‘making of’ and original content – 14 hours of films & photo essays produced over 1 year.

The video has some really interesting anecdotes from directors/photographers from across the country on things they (we) had to deal with throughout the project – especially on the topic of how to approach participants and get people to open up and talk about their troubles during the recession.
