Shane Meadows Talks About Making His First Documentary 'Made Of Stone' In An Interview
'This Is England' director Shane Meadows is interviewed about his new Stone Roses documentary 'Made Of Stone' which follows the band about as they make a comeback into music. He talks about the rehearsal process and the differences between making a film and making a documentary.
'The thing that I do and is vital to my work is the rehearsal process, starting way before we start the film to build up a sense of history', he reveals. 'That same ritual of sitting in a room together, improvising, working to together, getting back into the flow.' On working on a documentary, he admits, 'I didn't realise quite how different it was gonna be. On my films, although I'm improvising a lot, I'm changing the story and bending the story to what I think needs to happen and on a documentary obviously you're not doing that, you're following real people.'
