The "Wrestling for Jesus" Team Begins to Form
I've had some great conversations and meetings over the last couple of weeks.
TC Johnstone, a filmmaker from Austin, has agreed to help work on Wrestling for Jesus as a producer. TC and I (Nate) met over the last several days and talked (amongst other things) about the narrative arc of Wrestling for Jesus and how best to develop it.
TC is a very skilled story teller, so I am really excited to have him on board the project. His expertise will really help this not just be a documentary about some interesting guys in South Carolina, but rather a fully formed story. You can read more about TC at his website, www.gratis7mediagroup.org
We are also in talks with an editor / colorist to help with finishing the look and with another Fourth Line Films collaborator, Gregory Tanacea, to handle the audio mix.
We've still got our eyes open for a composer to tackle the soundtrack.
Remember to spread the word. Let's get this project made.

In addition to everything at the $200 level, these two backer will be awarded their very own Wrestling For Jesus Tag Team Championship belt (they don't actually have to wrestle on a team). Wear it with pride at work, all sorts of social functions, heck - even sleep with it on.

For the heavyweight champion of Wrestling For Jesus, you will get your own championship belt. (You'll also get the DVD and T-shirt, but really, it's all about the belt). And there is only one - you are the undisputed heavy weight champ.
