One of the projects I am currently working on is with Counterweight Productions. I help develop social impact strategies for film and television. We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for one of our projects.
Beautiful Game: The Epic Romance of Brazilian Soccer
Beautiful Game: The Epic Romance of Brazilian Soccer is a 4 part documentary series on the passion of Brazilian soccer that will air internationally leading up to the World Cup in 2014.
A series no soccer fan will want to miss, BEAUTIFUL GAME will explore all of the factors––the futebol stars, the passionate fans, the unique Brazilian style of play––which combine to make Brazil the most dramatic force in international soccer, winner of more FIFA World Cups than any other nation and the only team to have played in every World Cup.
We also plan on adding a social mission to the film. Sport for development programs are increasing in popularity. Soccer is being used to help kids and adults learn leadership skills, social skills, and even HIV/AIDS prevention. Check out UNICEF’s Sport for Development page for more information.
It’s going to be an incredible documentary series. A bonus? It will help raise awareness about a great cause. But in order for that to happen we need to get it funded.
In return for funding the project, there are a series of perks we’re offering. Here’s a few that stand out:
$5 – Beautiful Game rubber wristband
$25 – Digital download of all 4 episodes of Beautiful Game
$50 – Swag from one of the 40 Series D Brazilian soccer teams we visit + digital download of all 4 episodes
$100 – Tour for 2 of the NYC post production facility + digital download of all 4 episodes
$500 – 2 tickets to Beautiful Game Premiere + after party
$1,000 – Featured in a montage that will air with the episodes internationally sharing how soccer has impacted your life. We’ll also be creating a website where people will be able to see your full interview.
