About

We are a very small, professional, independent film crew. We have produced 5 full length features, sold out movie theaters and competed in film festivals. At this point in our production careers we realize we are just spinning our wheels as we cannot compete with other indie films which are being made for 50 million or more. Our film crew has a passion for watching and playing hockey and therefore it makes sense to take our indie film skills and follow something we love - hockey. We met with the Grand Rapids Griffins management staff and they were very excited about the reality show concept. But they needed approval from their parent club - the Detroit Red Wings. The Griffins asked us to film a pilot project to send to Detroit for approval. After several months of waiting-the official approval came from the Red Wing organization. We have been granted media access to start filming during training camp where the Wings and Griffins prepare for the upcoming AHL and NHL season. Following training camp we will be with the Griffins at Van Andel arena in search for a compelling story to tell the world. We will follow player, fans and staff members during the season. The intent is to produce a pilot show to present to a network and hopefully sell the show. We also want to put our home town, Grand Rapids, Michigan on the map and make the Grand Rapids Griffins an international brand. We would like to help this organization sell seats and merchandise and make it a win-win relationship. The money will be used for equipment, travel / accommodations, all aspects of production from shooting to editing to encoding. We will also actively market this concept to local, national and international television markets.
