LIVING ON A SHOESTRING is a short documentary focusing on the lifestyle and challenges of busking and street entertainment from one musician's perspective. The short documentary features musician and street entertainer, Jools Baker. During my time with Jools – following him around as he played his sax and entertained the public on the streets – my perception of what busking is and why people do it changed dramatically. Busking and street entertainment is a way of life and a career choice for many musicians like Jools. Jools chose to sell his flat and opt for a life on the road living out of his van. This is his story.
