Who we are



Wide Awake productions profiles the video journalism and documentary film work of multi-skilled filmmaker Christopher Symes.

Passionate about investigative journalism Christopher’s work has taken him all over the world. Between 2012 and 2014 Christopher was based fulltime in Myanmar, where his work took him to some of the more remote parts of this fascinating nation. During his time there Christopher collaborated with Kate Hodal (Guardian), Patrick Bodenham (BBC/Other), Anthony Neil (So It Goes/ Ecodev) and Ali Fowle (DVB).

Separate to his video work for Wide Awake, Christopher also setup Reel Media Myanmar and is a member of the Third Sector Films collective.
