The filmmaker behind the popular YouTube channel Scott Peterson’s documentary about his life, How to Make Your Own Movie on YouTube, said his new documentary about the film, “The Secret,” has been selected as one of the top 100 most viewed YouTube videos of the year.
The film, which premieres on the film channel of The View in the U.K. on Wednesday, also won the top spot on the BBC documentary series “BBC News at Night.”
Peterson, who was born in England to British parents, grew up in the country and has lived in London since 2008.
He has been nominated for multiple Academy Awards for best documentary feature, best documentary short, best doc, best short documentary, best film, best feature, documentary short and best documentary, among others.
The film, a collaboration between Peterson and the BBC, follows the filmmaker as he moves from England to the United States, the U!
States, Germany and Switzerland.
Peterson says the film follows a journey through a tumultuous and difficult time.
“I didn’t think this would be an easy journey to make.
I was like, ‘I think I’ve got a problem,'” Peterson told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day” on Wednesday.”
But it’s also very much a journey.
It’s about being a man, it’s about the love and the loss of a mother and the struggle of being an outsider in a culture that’s so welcoming.”
Petson, who also has an award-winning book about his childhood, has become one of YouTube’s most successful filmmakers with more than a million subscribers and nearly 1.3 million videos.
The documentary, which is being produced by his production company, The Little Films, has won eight Oscars and has received critical acclaim.
In addition to winning an Academy Award, Peterson is the recipient of the 2016 National Film Board of Canada’s Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes an artist’s work that is “a reflection of the people who watch it.”
He was also awarded the 2017 Polaris Media Award for Excellence in Narrative and received a 2018 National Book Award for his documentary, “Moves Like Jagger,” which tells the story of the musician’s life.
Peterson also said he has received death threats since the release of the documentary.
He said his wife of 23 years, Sarah, and their four children have been supportive and have been accepting of his film.
“It’s been a tough few months,” he said.
“I’ve been going through a tough time, a very, very hard time.
I’ve had to deal with the death of my father, with a serious illness, with this very difficult period of my life.
I have had a lot of support from people who know me, and I’m really, really thankful for that.”CNN has reached out to The Little Filmmakers and the filmmakers for comment.
