Title: Matt Windle: Poet with a Punch.
I hope to produce a lighthearted documentary about an inspirational local character which would be targeted towards teenagers, particularly male.
Character: Matt Windle is a very interesting and inspiring character. He was Birmingham’s Poet Laureate for 2007-2008. He is also an amateur boxing champion, musician and teaches poetry to others. Matt is going to be the olympic torch bearer for the London 2012 olympics.
- Use animation to demonstrate the boxing win. Make is colourful and appeal to younger teens as well as an older audience.
- Filmed on a DSLR camera – handheld to enhance the films intimate feel.
- Matt’s music could be used.
- Matt’s poetry juxtaposed along side his victories.
- Perhaps use archive footage from his family.
- Distribute using social media campfire technique.
- Have Matt Narrate his own story.
Perhaps apply for festivals with it and apply for crowd funding…
