The Price Of Fame begins.
As fate would have it Peter Ferriero would be sitting at a church in Brooklyn to film Ted DiBiase's sermon. He had never heard the testimony before. In fact, he really had no idea what the story was. After two hours of listening he was moved beyond words. 'I remember after Ted's testimony I had stepped outside to get a moment to myself. I saw a man in tears talking on the phone about how Ted's story had moved his heart. Something lit inside me that said, I need to make this a film.'
Years later Ted DiBiase Jr would find himself at a critical crossroads in his own life. After having a new born son, Tate, he was challenged by life on the road. He abandoned his dream job so he could work at being a better husband and father in these critical years. "Stepping out of the ring was frightening and exciting at the same time. We had financial security, but I was giving up time I would never get back."
The final piece of the puzzle.
Ferriero's project had reached an inevitable stale-mate. He was waiting for the right piece of the puzzle to line up. DiBiase Jr and Ferriero would meet up in Wilcox, Arizona the very birth of Ted DiBiase Sr. for some filming. Within minutes, the two had hit it off and decided the film needed to be told by Ted DiBiase Jr. It truly was a destined moment. They immediately started going on the road filming interview after interview. They spent a considerable amount of money on securing locations & situations that the true fans would love to see Ted Sr return to.

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenges are securing the rights to the footage we are looking for. This is truly a real film to us. Our goals are to get the access, to specific footage, and music licenses that are critical. Having the right backing from Kickstarter will truly help to alleviate some of those concerns.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
