TRI is a new full contact sport played on a circular field, with 3 teams competing for possession of a newly designed ball.
THIS SPORT IS REAL!!
Our featured introduction video is a quick glimpse into the workings behind the 2012 TRI World Finals tournament in Shanghai. All footage of the event and game, including what you watched in this short introduction, has been filmed in raw form and is waiting to be edited into a professional game highlights promotional video. This promo will feature big hits, amazing runs and break-away goals. As well as the highlights, visual effects and animations will be used to communicate and visualize the rules, also the brand.
What is The TRI Federation?
The TRI Federation www.trifederation.org is a small, American based start-up, dedicated to a new sport called TRI. This emerging sport is played with 3 teams on a doughnut shaped circular field and is a combination of Rugby, Aussie Rules Football and American Football. The TRI Federation is the governing body of the sport and just recently hosted the 2012 TRI World Finals, the second ever international game, in Shanghai, China.
This is a singular, international movement with great promise for education and growth. The TRI Federation intends to operate professionally, bridge cultures, offer creative outlets, increase activity and fitness, and ensure that every participant feels a sense of ownership over the movement we are creating together.
What is the purpose of this video post-production project?
Funding will help us create the first viral marketing push for the sport. Once the video is released and maximizes exposure, the TRI Federation will leverage its success to expand the sport by generating sponsorships and partnerships, introduce TRI to schools and universities, and begin establishing recreational leagues around the world. By viewing the video, people will gain a solid idea of the rules, pace and culture of TRI.
What's the funding for?
The TRI World Finals game has been professionally filmed and it is now important to edit and animate many components that will reinforce the viewer experience and narrate the rules and action. If a total of $24,000 is reached, video editing can begin and Project 1 will be released around the world. With graphics, computer animations, a custom soundtrack, professional video editing, and contextual explanations, a post-production video becomes a long and expensive process. We also intend to spend the rest of the funding raised to print and produce all of our rewards and marketing materials. To debut the sport effectively, we have requested the assistance of a qualified and experienced video production company, www.mustfilms.com who filmed the game and are interested in showing the world the best of TRI. Please support TRI and be part of this global community exploring a new full contact sport with 3 teams.
What's after this initial video?
At TRI Federation, we like to be inclusive and offer the public an organized method to contribute and support the development of this sport. The viral promo video will cement TRI’s credibility and lead into a range of exciting and unique opportunities for Kickstarter fans to help with. Future Kickstarter projects will include the production of a tutorial video game, website user experience design and an international forum, maintenance of players’ profiles, TRI training camps for athletes, production of TRI equipment, expansion of leagues and teams, and many more projects that you can help us create. At the end of 2013, we will host a US tournament of 27 state teams. This will be the largest and most exciting event in the sport's young development, debuting the sport in the biggest sports market in the world. We hope to see you there!!
Why does your contribution help?
Starting a new sport is no easy task. Although this project is a video, the overall sport design is different from making a single product, movie, or simple activity. As we explore this new frontier in sports, the design allows YOU to continuously assist creation and experience first-hand the excitement of TRI. A shared vision of ours is to one day watch this sport on TV as an international sport association featuring the next-generation of athletes.
