'I come in character, I leave in character. No one really knows the real me.'
'Doctor Loco' by Anna Snowball (1989) and Matthew Kay (1988) dips it's toes into the life of a street performer from London's Southbank. Initially about how a street performer could be tempted away from his podium, this touching documentary explores deeper questions of success, failure and aspirations. The film was made as part of a 2 day filmmaking challenge, in which the Doc Next Lab participants were given two 6 hour days to run the entire life-cycle of a documentary, from conception to completion.
Produced by the British Film Institute in 2012 as part of the Doc Next Media Lab scheme.
