ideas for our
documentary so far
Producing a documentary on the rise and fall of small businesses
Drugs in Sport
The effect of video games, related to violence
To what extent does the media have an impact on our body image
Fashion - then and now
Recent Topics. e.g. recent wars, swine flu.
A mockumentary on funny incidents
We then thought to produce a short
documentary on the musician,
songwriter and chef, Levi Roots. It
would be about how far his career has
progressed since appearing on
Dragons’ Den, and what he is currently
doing. We have been able to get hold of
Levi PR Agents and they have agreed to
let us interview him sometime in mid to
late October but they will give us a date
and time, nearer the time.
We thought to make a start on our documentary
by creating the start of it. This was by using
various archive material of Levi on Dragons’ Den,
which we then edited giving it a black and white
effect, emphasising that it’s in the past. We then
did voiceovers over the archive footage before
the titles roll. The best titles for our documentary
that we have come up with are “Levi Roots-
Making of a Mogul” and “Roots to Success”. We
were also thinking of combining the two calling it
“Roots to Success – Making of a Mogul”.

We have also created a Prezi, which is an
interactive presentation which is very visual
and engaging. Our Prezi was based on
research that we has carried out on Levi
Roots from his background, appearing on
Dragons’ Den and what he does now. Our
Prezi can be viewed by following the link
A student from our school acted as Levi Roots
for a short interview. This is so we could gain
some practise before we meet the real person
as well as to try out various camera angles so
we know what and how were going to shoot /
film the interview on the day.
