About

We are making a documentary about how the love of the Green Bay Packers spans the entire world!

The Green Bay Packers are the smallest market major league NFL team in North America. They also have the most loyal fans of any team in the country. These fans share a special bond, and reside anywhere from Florida to Seattle. 

Even Japan. 

In Tokyo, there is a small but fervent pocket of incredibly devoted and excited Packers fans. Not ex pats, but Japanese citizens who have come to love all things Packers and Green Bay. 

They are the Japanese Packers Cheering team.

They meet to watch games throughout every season and have formed lifelong bonds through their love of the Packers. Now we want to bring them to Green Bay so they can see their favorite team in the world for the first time in person. Imagine their lifelong dream being fulfilled. Stepping out of a plane and onto Wisconsin soil, and finally being in the heart of Packers country. Imagine them in the bars of Green Bay. Mingling with lifelong Packers fans, experiencing a real Wisconsin Packers bar, and experiencing what it means to be in the city that they have come to love from afar.

In September, they are coming to Green Bay to fulfill this dream. They will be staying with host families, and this meeting of loyal fans a world apart shows the power of everything that the Green Bay Packers are. We believe that the power of sports to unite different cultures and people of all walks of life is a very powerful thing. We want to document this historic occasion on film, and show the world that the Green Bay Packers are more than just a football team. 

Kanpai!

Risks and challenges

With an event as momentous as this, you never know what's going to happen. That's part of the fun! Producing a documentary is a complicated business. We might need to get additional footage or interviews to make the film as good as it can be. That might delay the finished product. Either way we will not rest until this film is as good as it deserves to be.
