Cover me babe pt 1
Hotshot film student Tony Hall (Robert Forster) wins a prize for his short film and sets out to break into Hollywood. When financing for his documentary does not come through, Hall hits the streets alone to film, searching out moments of genuine humanity and truth. However, Halls definition of truth is slippery, and he sometimes manufactures incidents in front of the camera to obtain results. Eventually, his personal life starts to suffer, as well as his burgeoning professional career.

Seeking a grant, Tony is steered to Paul, whos a Hollywood agent, but he continues to reject the notion of making movies that conform to the norm. Tony shoots realistic footage of a couple making love in a car, a derelict, a prostitute, even an argument between Melisse and a young student, Jerry, that nearly turns violent. He alienates all eventually, and is alone in the end.
