for my short documentary film i plan on shooting the average day of a man who is very athletic but suffers from diabetes. I plan on showing what he has to do different than others to assure he is in good health. For B roll i want to have his voice explaining why he is so dedicated to sports and excercising why filming his workouts. also i would like to have his voice explaining his disease while visually seeing his insertion sites on his body.
I watched hoop dreams for the documentary. i thought this documentary was average. i was impressed with how many years the director followed his characters and felt let down when they didnt succeed with their careers as they planned too. One critique i have about this film is that it was a little confusing. i found it hard to follow whos story was whos as there were more than one main character.
