Remembering Michael Apted
“He always knew exactly what he wanted. The style he shot all the documentaries in was extremely simple. For him, it was all about the story and all about the people. It was about allowing people to say what they thought in a very direct, candid manner. He asked really brilliant questions. He never listened to the sound of his own voice; he was only ever interested in what people had to say to him. He was immensely proud of Up."
