Toby Amies is a documentarian that uses himself as a storytelling device. The sincere first-person interview style of his Great Garden series, The Man Whose Mind Exploded, and now In the Court of the Crimson King: King Crimson at 50 introduces audiences to what he lovingly calls “monomaniacal” characters in vulnerable states. Toby’s presence appears through his disembodied voice, engaging film subjects with compassion and creating space for viewers to fill. It’s an immersive style of filmmaking that adds layers to every project.
