This man, living his life inside a trailer outside Göteborg / Sweden. Had it all more or less. Great job, lot’s of friends, money. (he’s mentioned in IMDB.com) Life was rock’n’roll. Too much Rock’n’roll. Really. That was ten loooong years ago, or in reality maybe much longer. He’s fighting alone to get back on his feet, but it’s a struggle for everyday survival and it’s a reality most people close their eye to. It’s scary to think that it’s even remotely possible to be where he is, or was – which was much worse in the late 90s (living more or less under a tree for years walking on all four). And to listen to his story, on how easy it is to get where he is, and on how good old friends just disappears when trouble arrives is educating to say at least.
We’re talking about making a documentary of his story, we talked about it now for some time and he’s ready. I’m thinking about how to do it, what gear to use. I’d like to use film or red. Any suggestions? I’d like to go without extra light. (or maybe one portable light).. Any good suggestions? Even the Canon 5D Mark II might be good for this?!..
Oh, how much I’m longing for a film function for a SD camera. even at 480p or 720p it would kick some serious but – especially at black and white with it’s extreme micro contrast it has a very special film-like feeling that I yet have to see using anything digital. Including red.
