Documentary filmmaking is about transparency, honesty, and integrity. If you cross or break these principles you will not only let the audience down but you are letting down the countless number of people who worked so hard to bring the film to life. When we started filming Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 I was under the impression that my good mate, Phil Staples, was continuing to be a success story in his own eyes. When you read his personal account, you will learn what I learned — the truth of his actual circumstances.
