Documentary Outline

My documentary is about my dad, the kind of person he is, what he does for a living, and what his lifestyle entails.  My pre-production included deciding what kind of a and b role I wanted in my film.  Most of the b role is to be filmed at the airport, as he spends a lot of his time traveling.  I plan on getting shots of the customs line, printing out plane tickets, the walk to the plane, plane getting ready to take off, taking off, and in the air transitioning from day to night.  More of my b role will be my dad working in the house/kitchen, which is essentially his office when he is not traveling.  I will have dialogue of him and my family talking in the background as he and they explain things about him.  Then I will have a role of him talking to the camera, as well as my sisters and mom saying something about him as well.  I plan on starting this film of with his alarm going off at 5 am, and to finish off the credits after my mom or sisters has said something decent about him, with the same ringtone as the concluding audio.
