What a year! Thank you for your continued patience while we work on Rollaball. The film is still in production and has made some progress in 2016. Notably, renowned film editor Megan Gill came on board to re-edit the first 2 acts of the film.
The delays to completing the production have been due to two things: Challenges in fundraising and the fact that the event we hope to shoot to close the film (act 3) – Albert’s dream of an African Cup of Nations - is still in development.
The good news is that the Rolling Rockets team is now being sponsored by Binatone. Their first act of sponsorship will be a tournament on the 15th January, which will take place on the beach in Accra, against the team from Kumasi.
The sport of Skate Soccer has also been officially registered in Ghana, and Binatone would like Coach Albert to start an international federation, ie. the FIFA of Skate Soccer. We’ll update you with any news on this.
Independent documentary filmmaking is often a long journey, but hopefully one with a rewarding destination - that you will all enjoy. Please stay in touch with us via Facebook
All the best from Eddie and the Rollaball team
