Wayne: meet the director

Director Jeremy Sims makes his first foray into factual with a feature doco about Wayne Gardner.

Sims says the biggest difference between drama and documentary is in the edit.

"We always knew with this documentary, that is the stories of how Wayne Gardner became Wayne Gardner in Wollongong, we're not going to have footage of him being chased by the police in the hinterland, and finding the $5 bike," Sims says.

"Docos find different ways to tell those stories when they don't have footage."


Wayne is released in Australian cinemas through Transmission from 6 September.
