We debuted our newest teaser for the college hoops documentary RED V. BLUE last week at the Louisville Venture Connectors meeting. The pitch went over well, and the folks at Louisville Business First called it the "best film-financing pitch" that they have ever seen. Literally. [vimeo id="60718520" width="560" height="340"]
In November, we were in Kentucky, working on our Red V. Blue documentary about the UofL-UK college basketball rivalry. The documentary has been in production since December 2011 and is picking up steam. Among the developments, we have added a new producer WHAS sports reporter Adam Lefkoe who started the popular UofL-UK themed "The Rivalry" YouTube series. Most recently, we were in Louisville, KY, where we went inside WAG's barbershop, a “divided” establishment where UK and Louisville fans once sat side by side. Boone clipped the Wildcat fans, and Mark Wagner and Mark Wagner Jr. clipped the Cardinals supporters. You may remember them from Adam Lefkoe's "The Rivalry" YouTube channel.

After the 2012 UK national championship, the barbers butted heads, and Boone struck out on his own. “Designed by Miracles” was the result, a barbershop with an interior painted entirely blue and white about twenty blocks east of WAG's on Broadway Avenue in downtown Louisville. For Red V. Blue we check in with Boone and the Wagner family before reuniting the barbers for a passionate debate on UK-UofL basketball.
See you at the big game on December 29th!
