The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone – behind the scenes

Director Maya Newell discusses the seven-year journey making the short documentary, The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone.

For director Maya Newell, giving the subjects of her documentaries creative input has been a liberating experience and one that leads to better outcomes.

“At the end of the day, everything that we film, she [Georgie Stone] had control over. She would get the last say in the edit. She could decide what went in the film, what went out of the film, whether we even made a film,” Newell explains.

In this behind-the-scenes video, Newell talks about her process making the documentary, how she surrounds herself with a creative team to assist her and what she hopes audiences will learn from Georgie’s story.

The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone is streaming on Netflix from 22 September 2022.
