The Roving Typist

 Vimeo Direkttype, via Open Culture

Toller Kurzfilm von Mark Cerosimo über Herrn C.D. Hermelin, den Roving Typist, der sich in New York mit seiner Schreibmaschine in die Gegend setzt und fremden Leuten eine Geschichte runtertippt. Und falls Euch der Mann bekannt vorkommt: Vor 'nem Jahr war er 'ne halblustige Anti-Hipster-Meme.

C.D. Hermelin was broke when he decided to bring his typewriter to a park and type unique, one-of-a-kind stories for any passersby with a few dollars to spare. And people responded. Even as the project grew in notoriety, the spirit stayed the same - a writer with his typewriter, trying to come up with something good. The Roving Typist is his story.
