About this project

FUND A ROLLER HOCKEY DOCUMENTARY FILM!  We have nearly completed the first ever documentary film on roller hockey in America. ROCK –n- ROLLERS: THE WILD SPORT OF PRO ROLLER HOCKEY breaks new ground in sports documentaries. Not only does it capture sports legends, players, coaches and administrators discussing the birth, life and death of Roller Hockey International (RHI), the first professional inline hockey league, but it also makes a major news announcement.  This announcement will change the landscape of roller hockey in America forever.   With amazing interviews that span from legendary sports promoter and senior co-founder of RHI, Dennis Murphy, to unforgettable NHL players, coaches, and administrators such as Jeanie Buss, Ralph Backstrom, Howard Baldwin, and Alex Bellehumeur, to the last recorded interview with the NBA’s Dr. Jerry Buss (who bought an RHI franchise), “ROCK -n- ROLLERS” just needs your help to complete the one hour film. All the interviews are finished, and a rough cut completed.  We are asking for finishing funds to help with the music, sound and final editing cost.  We hope to complete editing in time to premiere the documentary at the ROLLER HOCKEY INTERNATIONAL 20th ANNIVERSARY REUNION to be held at the Knott's Berry Farm Grand Ballroom in Buena Park, California, on Saturday November 16th, 2013 from 6-10pm. At this reunion Dennis Murphy, founder of Roller Hockey International will announce a major development in the future of pro roller hockey.   You can help us get ROCK n ROLLERS: THE WILD SPORT OF PRO ROLLER HOCKEY in front of decision-makers who can help us bring professional roller hockey back to an HDTV near you!   When the puck drops on a new league, you can say that you made it happen.

Risks and challenges

Since we have already completed all filming of the project and have put together a rough cut of the program, all that is needed is to pay for the editor to cut together the finished product and to incorporate the sound effects and musIc. With everyone all geared up and ready to go, the risks and challenges of not being able to finish the TV documentary special would vaporize as long as the funding becomes available. I have personally produced over 200 full-length and news segment documentaries for the international TV markets, and feel most confident as to the potential commercial viability and success of this particular project.
