The Spanish Guy Down The Street | Documentary Idea
by Scarlett Wilson
A short documentary about an older man, who as of now is a mystery to me. I live in Brooklyn, NY and always see him standing outside. We wave hello to each other often.
One time it was raining softly while the sun was still out and I saw him standing under a tree using the leaves for shelter and just staring up into the sky. I wondered what he was thinking about.
Another time, he randomly pulled a keyboard on a stand out onto the sidewalk with a microphone and began singing beautiful songs and serenading the neighbors. I want to do a mini documentary about what his life was/is like and document him in his natural element.
I want to see what other social situations and opinions arise from talking to him. Most of all, I want the audience to connect with this mystery man with his gentle ways see what story comes out of him.
