This gentleman was such a character. We was a street preacher, shouting his message about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He really made a big point about his message as he was very animated and loud. He was also very intimidating too. I'm not normally shy when it comes to people on the streets but this guy had me at a distance. Anyway I managed to get something I felt best presented his attitude to the people...I think you can tell many stories with this shot. Can you help me with a title guys? I'm stuck here.

dont like these street preachers and am chuckling at ade's interpretation (terrible movie btw)...
they certainly do have a certain charisma though and its easy to see why so many people would want to stop and listen...

I would possibly remove the 'M' for the title of the film and edit it to, 'THE DUMMY'...... smile
