I'm Tobias Deml, the director of the HBO Max "Gaming Wall Street" docu-series. The doc is about Reddit memes, the revolution of retail investors and the dark underbelly of Wall Street. AMA!
Hi everyone! I was really fortunate to have gotten to direct a documentary on HBO Max, and would like to pass on as many insights and learning lessons as I can. You can ask about the finance topics , filmmaking, fraud, naked short selling, insane editing marathons - you name it.
We started this project at Prodigium Pictures in late 2020 and then partnered up with the Wall Street insiders of Biltmore Films to dig down under Wall Street's dark side. We then got the doc powerhouse Gunpowder & Sky on board, and ultimately HBO Max.
A big shout-out to my producer Tessa Byford who was there with me from Day 0 until the final 3.5 months of editing, for 14-16hrs/day, 6-7 days a week, producing this under enormous time and quality pressure.
All right, AMA!
Proof: Here's my proof!
Edit: Thanks for your thought-provoking questions! I had a great time.
I got a few requests to do another AMA in the Superstonk subreddit; can do that if it gets organized with those mods!
