this made me think of ernest p. worrell's relationship with "vern",
his silent cameraman. usually vern is servile, but sometimes he
disobeys ernest. also, when ernest gets seriously injured vern does
nothing. sort of a negotiation of power a la penn & teller but
between cameraperson/subject. also likely to induce queasiness, so
you're good to go!
