Documentary Development ‘My Lucky Break’

As Bernie, my possible character for my documentary is homeless, it’s become extremely obvious that he is going to be a hard character to get hold of a build up a relationship trust worthy enough for me to film him. The danger that I feel here is that he may think I’m filming him to pry in on his life and emphasise the unfortunate parts of his life in a negative way.

I think that an idea like this would be good for a longer documentary where I could build up a good relationship of trust between myself and the character, following him around to see the struggles of homeless life, but also the little things that would make him happy that we may take for granted.

At this stage, making this documentary seems pretty impossible and if we were any earlier on into the module I would do some research online to find an interesting and reliable character, however it’s too late to be able to do this now.
