About this project

$17,721

336

Why we need your help:We have produced "shoot interviews" with wrestling legends before but we found our experience with the Dynamite Kid was something more.  We returned from Manchester, England and knew that a shoot interview just wasn't something that could ever do justice to Dynamite's story.  Now we want to produce the definitive documentary on Dynamite, his career, and how he changed the wrestling world forever.

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges will be that we're attempting to interview several dozen wrestlers for this project and we're always at risk to their interest and availability.

One trip we'd like to make is to travel to Calgary and arranging that trip where it works will all the candidates involved may not go according to plan.

We have concerns that this project may need subtitles. We have never done subtitles for a project before. We do know people who have but we have not done so ourselves.
