HOTELThe type of TV show we are doing Fly-on-the-wall is a style of documentary-making, what these type of documentary’s are is, it uses camera that are set up arounda set location, a little like CCTV, but also with audio, to basically show the “real” life ofthe said person being on the documentary; it is also common for participants to beinterviewed, often by an off-camera voice. The series is filmed using fixed cameraspositioned in several locations around the complex rather than using a camera crew. Anexisting TV program that already exists that is aired on a similar TV channel (Channel 4)is “Hotel” it is basically the theme we want to be going for. What its basic intentions areis to show a realistic program, which shows the funny side of a life of the person in theprogram, such as arguing, laughing, and living there life how they would; letting theviewer’s essentially judge them on what they do. TV programs like this are referred to as“the dull bits that nobody ever mentions” due to it not just showing the excitingparts, yet the real life moments parts also.
