About the Documentary

The narrative spine of our documentary is Seth’s chronological journey through life.

Our main character is Seth Martinez. Other than interview footage of him we’re planning on taking a go pro camera and having him or Devon wear it during one of their classes. We’re also getting footage of Seth’s old neighborhood and possibly footage of his family. We’re also planning to get old photos of Seth from when he was young.

The conflict in our story is the troubles Seth had growing up and his eventual turnout of becoming a Capoeira instructor and an inspiration for others and this documentary. The change unfolding in the piece is the same, looking at Seth’s transformation from a kid who earned the nickname Pimenta, meaning “pepper” for being so rowdy into a respectable adult and teacher.

Our piece could have problems being visually strong because it’s mostly about the past. We need a lot of archival footage and photographs in order to get the point across. Though it may seem easy for us to get footage of Capoeira, we have to keep in mind that our film is not about Capoeira, but about Seth.
