Teenage Paparazzo

The guy who plays Vince in Entourage, Adrian Grenier was pap sprayed by a kid one day. He was so shocked that in order to attempt to understand what motivates a 13 year-old kid to spend all night papping that he decided to turn the cameras and make a doco himself.

In the end he makes the same realisation that all documentary makers do when they choose paparazzi as their subject. And so it becomes a quirky documentary whose pulling feature is the kid, and which doesn’t carry much else.

The redeeming feature though is that he was able to get MIT Professor Henry Jenkins, an academic who I quoted prolifically through my dissertation and whose intellect I hold in high regard.
