Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Hickenlooper (May 25, 1963 - October 29, 2010) was an American narrative and documentary filmmaker. Hickenlooper was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended high school at St. Louis University High, where he was part of a group of teenage filmmakers he informally called the "Splicers." After graduating from Yale University with a B.A. in History and Film Studies in 1986, Hickenlooper interned for the producer Roger Corman, and launched his directing career with Art, Acting, and the Suicide Chair: Dennis Hopper in 1988. His first feature-length documentary, Hearts of Darkness, explored the making of Apocalypse Now. It won several awards, including the National Board of Review award for "Best Documentary," an American Cinema Editors award for "Best Edited Documentary," two Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awards for "Outstanding Individual Achievement - Informational Programming - Directing" and "Outstanding Individual Achievement - Informational Programming - Picture Editing," and the International Documentary Association award. Hickenlooper himself won an Emmy for direction.show more
