About

Who: My name is Robert Tiffin. I am a filmmaker that was born and raised in Hoover, Alabama. If you would like to check out some of my previous work I encourage you to head to peopleareneat.com which is home to some of the short documentaries I have made.

What: We are going to make a feature length documentary about the positive impact Alabama football has on its fans. 

When: If we successfully fund the project, it will be finished in November 2012. The project will start shooting in January 2012 and wrap in September.

Why: I grew up in Hoover, Alabama surrounded by college football. It was something that brought families together on weekends, forged stronger bonds between parents and their children and was the primary topic of conversation at almost every family function. It was a huge and wonderful part of growing up in the south.

I feel like much of that has been ignored the past several years with the media coverage of the University of Alabama and other SEC schools. The most glaring example is of course the recent ESPN documentary about the Iron Bowl, but that was really nothing new. Most of the world wants to depict us as a bunch of hate-fueled hillbillies... my goal is to make a film that focuses on the positive impact Alabama football has had on the lives of fans and in doing so show what a wonderful group of human beings most of them are. I understand there are plenty of bad apples, but I know the positive far outweighs the negative in this case and we rarely hear about it.

How: We need $5000 to make this film happen. That is alot of money, but in filmmaking dollars it is not really much at all. In fact, many of you will wonder how I can do it for so cheap. We had a nice bit of money donated from a wonderful gentleman that wishes to be kept anonymous to get us started. I am also putting my life's savings into the film in additon to the funds raised here. And finally I am calling in every favor from the past 5 years of making movies. I have been able to secure a wonderful crew for very low day rates. The money raised will primarily be used to pay for travel expenses and equipment rental. 100% of all funds raised will got into the movie. Please take a look at the rewards section and if you would like to donate we REALLY REALLY appreciate it. Do not hesitate to e-mail me personally at rttiffin@gmail.com with any questions or comments. 

We are also still looking for subjects to feature in the film. If you or someone you know has a story about how Alabama football has impacted their life in some way, please email me at rttiffin@gmail.com. We would love to talk to you and figure out if your story is right for the film.

Thank you so much for your time. Best, Rober
