Mixing Narrative and Documentary Storytelling
An exploration of the power of imagination through David Leal, a man whose creativity releases him from the shackles of muscular dystrophy.
Done in Professor Ali Habashi's Film Production class at the University of Miami, Spring '14. The idea was to start with a documentary and move into narrative; in the style of Terrence Malick.
