Teenage Gangs of South London

Teenage Gangs of South London is a documentary about crime and the gangs involved in the south of London. It is presented by Ross Kemp and produced by Sky. Whilst this documentary does not explore the same themes I wish to, it does have some stylistic approaches when it comes to the content it produces. After analysing the documentary, I wish to take the following techniques into my own documentary:

  • Establishing shots when entering new locations

  • Lots of close ups during interviews to show emotion.

  • Shallow focus on subjects

  • Many different locations when conducting interviews, often unconventional (e.g. in a car)

  • Expert guests involved often

  • Very controversial questioning to create drama
