Bobby Moore The Movie - Exclusive Rise and Shine rewards on Kickstarter!


We’re delighted to be supporting BO66Y MOORE The Movie.

BO66Y is a new documentary about the life of Bobby Moore that marks the 50th anniversary of England’s victory in the1966 World Cup, uncovering the truth behind the man who led them to it. Interviews shot so far for the film include Pele, Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Roy Hodgson, Sir Geoff Hurst, Paul Gascoigne, Ray Winstone and Russell Brand. The film is in production but is crowdfunding to complete and cover the costs of archive footage, which we know first hand can be extremely expensive.

 The Kickstarter campaign is now live and includes exclusive rewards for the Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit backers, such as limited edition collectible Subbuteo figures of Jay DeMerit in the 2012 World Cup US Soccer kit and first look access at the finished film plus exclusive behind the scenes extras!

Pledge your support to BO66Y and help make this historic film:

Thanks and Rise and Shine!

Landfill Harmonic

Too many children in the world are born into lives with little or no hope. Landfill Harmonic reveals a mind-boggling, inventive effort to change that - musical instruments made from trash. In the barrios of Paraguay, a humble garbage picker uses his ingenuity to craft instruments out of recycled materials - and a youth orchestra is born. Music arises and children find new dreams.

You can check the trailer out at:

We thought it was worth a look, as these chidren are Rising & Shining.

Wow! THANK YOU, Up to #2, passed Moneyball!

Don't want to bombard people with emails, we wanted to thank everyone though and give an update.  This is incredible.  THANK YOU ALL for helping out. We are now #2 on iTunes Sports and ahead of Academy Award nominated film Moneyball.  We passed Katy Perry and a ton of other massive films.  All that stands in our way is Stiffler as a hockey player!  We are doing this without paying any money either, most films pay for placement on sites like iTunes.  We have just done it through passion and hard work from everyone.  Thank you so much! Let's get to #1!!!  We will be working through the night again to make this happen. Here is a link to  see the iTunes ranking and share it if you can.
