                                                               LOUIS THEROUX & THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY

Recently back from Los Angeles and Shoot #3.  As noted in previous  posts, due to the nature of the subject matter, I am not going into detail or posting pictures regarding the process. July was hot in LA and even hotter in the desert, where we had our first run in with actual living, breathing Scientologists - a dispute over private/public land.

 They also sent a couple of amateur journalists to film us one morning as we arrived at a film studio for work; surprisingly, they seemed unprepared for having the cameras turned upon themselves. The Church of Scientology seems bothered by the fact we are filming with certain prominent ex-members of the church, who they label as bitter & twisted and accuse of having their own warped agenda.

However the church have repeatedly refused to put anyone forward for interview and have denied us all access; so naturally Louis would speak to ex-members, who were highly placed inside the church for many years, and who would have unique experience of its inner machinations.

 As one would expect from a BBC journalist, Louis does not take everything they tell him at face value and challenges their motivations and psychology. This film may be many things but it will certainly not be one-sided. Louis is genuinely interested in understanding Scientology and wants to take the audience with him.

Tech specs: Sony F55, Angenieux Optimos 15-40mm, 28-76mm / Zeiss CP.2 135mm / 24fps / 1.185:1 / 2K

                                              Counter-documentaries: when subjects of investigation go on the attack


There’s a new trend in film, as organisations targeted by documentary-makers – such as the Church of Scientology – produce films discrediting their accusers. But are they enriching or endangering the discussion?

                             London Film Festival: BBC Documentary Veteran Explains Why He Made 'My Scientology Movie'

The BBC regular's first non-TV feature documentary is having its world premiere at the festival.

He’s a well-known face in the U.K. after hosting quirky BBC documentaries for almost two decades, but Louis Theroux’s U.S. profile could be on the rise following his first feature doc, about the Church of Scientology......
