Thanks for doing this! A few questions:

  1. I remember seeing one episode about a girl who would cut herself, a lot. There was a "scene" where it was just her and the cameraman, and she had broken a mirror and was cutting herself with it. I guess this was a regular occurrence, but I imagine it's gotta be pretty fucked up for the camera person. At what point do/would you have to intervene if the person is doing something unsafe like that?

  2. How awkward is it being there during fights? Or what about the actual intervention when the family is putting everything out there?

  3. What's the craziest thing you've had to film?

  4. What's the funniest?

  5. Were there any people who've had a lasting impression on you? Like someone who's life/issues still float around in your memory today.

  6. Have you ever felt unsafe? Is there off camera security nearby in case shit gets out of hand?

  7. Would you ever mingle or hang out with the subjects when the cameras weren't rolling?

Thanks for doing this, and sorry for so many questions.

When you were Ali G, you managed to interview many well-educated,respected people. Did you ever feel guilty, or feel that you would prefer to be having an honest, intellectual conversation with them?

Thanks!

How did you keep yourself from going crazy? Were you alone?
