Hugo Docking is a Royal Televison Society (RTS) bursary recipient and winner of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) prize for final year journalism, recently graduating with first class honours.
He directed and produced "Highly Arrestable", a short documentary following a high-profile Extinction Rebellion activist over the course of a year, chronicling his endeavors to save the planet with a series of controversial, illegal actions. Although this project won the NUJ award it cannot be shown here due to current legal restrictions following delays in court proceedings after the COVID-19 pandemic. Keep an eye out for it's release later this year.
Hugo hopes to forge a career in documentary production and continue to grow his portfolio of exciting, exclusive and thought-provoking documentary films.
