It is one of the world's most desirable areas to live: the corner of Rose and 5th in Venice Califronia: sun, ocean, love, peace, beautiful people and happiness. That's where I met Shotgun Willie, sitting shirtless on a curb.
I was out there hoping to find a story for the 4th KCRW IPP (Independent Producer Project) Radio Race. The theme announced three hours earlier: Out of Range. My concept: to talk with people living close to each other and at the same time being totally out of range of each other. So I sat down next to this homeless guy. I did not have to go any further. Trained to kill as a sniper many of the things he had hoped for are now totally out of his life's range.
