Becky, ya got yer space, babe... is, in a way, a documentary in its purest form Ð a completely unrestricted look into the mind of its subject. The content was never expected to be heard except by the sole recipient, which allowed the subject absolute freedom with his thoughts and words, no matter how coherent, engaging, explicit, obscene and/or mundane.
I did not set out to make this film.
A cassette tape ended up in my possession, which inspired the idea for the film.
I consider it to be an Experimental Documentary.
A documentary, in it's purest form, captures real-life events without impacting those events in any way. In reality, this rarely happens, since once a camera is introduced, the subjects are aware of the camera, and inevitably alter their conduct (purposely or even ever-so-slightly subconsciously) because they know they are being watched/filmed/taped.
