If you knew today was your last chance for greatness, could you summon your best? PIONEERS - the movie, based upon the novel.
PIONEERS - the movie, is the film adaptation of the fiction novel written by Larry Allen Denham. Set in East Tennessee, PIONEERS is a story that incorporates high level gymnastics, and it's challenges, with the challenges that we all must face in life. "What would you do if you knew that today was your last chance for greatness?"
Packed with action, both inside the gym and out, PIONEERS is a fast paced story that pushes the characters to dig deep for their very best and to live each day like it's their last!
Patrick Goodman is the senior captain of his Pioneers team, but he is at a crossroads. His talent and hard work have gotten him to a high level of gymnastics, but it will take a leap of faith, one he is not ready to make, to elevate him to be among the best.
Chris McClure is new to the Pioneers team. He doesn't quite fit in with his new teammates, but he has something that they desire, a daredevil mentality, uncanny skill, and a knack for living on the edge.
The story of PIONEERS is the juxtaposition between these two characters as they navigate the waters of their final competitive season as Pioneers. Can Patrick lead his team and find the spark that will push him to discover his best? Can Chris find his place with his new team and motivate his teammates to risk the norm in sake of greatness? Can the Pioneers win the day before they kill each other? And what is the dark secret that Chris holds that could unravel the plans of the Pioneers?
We are using Kickstarter to raise funds for creation of the development package that we can present to potential investors, sponsors, studios, and whoever would like to get on board this project. Our hope is to entice investors and studios to take a good look at a project that has three incredible factors in it's favor; story, scenery, timing.
1. STORY - The story of PIONEERS is more than just a sports story, it's a life story. We use sports to teach the tools to handle the challenges of life. Gymnastics is unique in that instead of learning basic fundamentals, as in team sports, and reduce the challenge of the sport to just the outcome, gymnastics presents a challenge to the athlete every day. To be stronger, smarter, braver, than the day before, or the turn before.
That is why I have always felt that gymnastics, more than any other sport, provides a great vehicle for a story about learning those lessons.
Another great aspect to the story is the appreciation of the gifts and the chances we get in life. "Live Each Day!" is more than a motto, its a call to action, to take advantage, and take stock, in every available moment.
2. THE SCENERY - PIONEERS is a story made for film. Gymnastics is incredible to watch, whether you are a gymnast or not. Unlike gymnastics films of the past, PIONEERS will show incredible, drop your jaw gymnastics, and in a way that it moves the plot. Not only that, but there are great visuals that take place outside the gym, as well.
And then there is the sex appeal. Although there will be no wizards or vampires, there will be handsome, fit, talented athletes do amazing gymnastics.
3. Timing - Gymnastics is the most watched sport of the Olympic Games, and with the early September 2012 London Games, what better time to release a quality film, with great visuals and a great story, for the whole family.
Guys will love it for the action, girls will love it for the scenery, and everyone can identify with, and will love, the story and they will walk out of the theater moved.
