Hey Buddy Films

This two part series, directed by Laurence and produced by Shurwin for Channel 4, takes you on a whistle stop tour around the UK to meet some of the people who got into hot water when they underestimated the power and reach of social networks.

From the friends arrested on terror charges at a US airport after a joke tweet, to the McDonald’s employee who went to jail after hacking an international superstar’s Facebook page, and the model arrested in her pyjamas when police burst into her home investigating a suspicion that she was harassing a celebrity, this documentary demonstrates why everyone should be aware that you can never be sure who is watching, reading and sharing your social media timeline.
