I came upon this amazing juggler randomly in my neighborhood last week and he graciously let me film him. Though he spoke very little English, and I even less Spanish, I was able to get that his name is Carlos and he's from Chile. He's been juggling for what he estimates is eight hours a day for the past 13 years. When I asked why he was in LA, he showed me a flyer from the International Juggler's Association which had invited him (and paid for his airfare) to come perform at a juggling convention in Texas. I guess he figured he'd swing through LA on the way. I had to film him right then because he was leaving town in the morning, so I raced home, grabbed my camera, and drove back before the sun went down, hoping that through my terrible spanish and his limited english he would still be there when I returned.
