It came quietly and after the broadcast of its first season, ‘ How To With John Wilson ‘ has become one of the favorite series of anyone who has looked at the concerns and paranoias of the official New York City registrar .
The Man And The Camera
Wilson clandestinely and obsessively films the lives of New Yorkers while trying to give everyday advice on issues related to the reality he records . The contradictions of modern life and the honesty of its narrator, who does not cut a hair when leaving more graphic details of the account, did the rest. The series is based on the short films previously published by Wilson on his Vimeo channel. Season 1 episodes included “How To Have A Chat” or “How To Improve Your Memory”, among others. And scaffolding. Many scaffolding.
“John’s lens is deliberate and caring,” says Amy Gravitt, vice president of programming for HBO. “Seeing the audience connect with the series has been an absolute joy . We can’t wait to see what 2021 has to offer with him behind the camera.”
Documentary filmmaker Wilson describes himself as an “anxious New Yorker . ” He made his HBO debut as a writer, director, cameraman, executive producer and narrator of the six-episode documentary comedy where Nathan Fielder also serves as an executive producer, alongside Michael Koman and Clark Reinking. We look forward to the continuation of one of the series of the year.
