Glimpse | Documentary Idea
by Dan Maher
Glimpse is a documentary idea for a series of short real life scenes from the perspective of various characters typifying the different lives of people around the world. The filming would be done similar to Being John Malkovich whereby the audience experiences the scenes as though they were the protagonist.
The message and purpose of this project is so that people can experience for a short period of time what it may be like to be a politician, or disabled person, or deaf or in prison or a street kid or a soldier etc.
Each real life character would be separate as though it were different episodes so that the audience can select which character they would like to see a glimpse of their life.
To create this project volunteers would be sought across the world to be selected as the protagonists. The film crew would have to go their environments and film via camera head sets or glasses so as to fulfill the illusion that the scenes are viewed as though they were through the eyes of the subject.
Example of characters:
physically disabled person
