There are a few little inspirations that came together for me to decide to write a treatment and eventually shoot a documentary film for and about Chargers fanatics... and especially those who write in forums. Firstly, I had been listening to the same radio ad day in any day out urging Bills fans to submit a video of their tailgate to You Tube in order to win some sort of prize. Don't even know what it was, but it began to drive me nuts. Secondly, reading Concudan's "Bugle" was interesting background material which I enjoyed. And thirdly, this "Show Me What You Look Like" thread in here displays some of the amusing effects of you people sticking your mugs in front of a camera. Even if you roll all of the better aspects of these three formats into one... the piece would still be lacking in terms of a real film. Drunken revelers misbehaving at a tailgate might be amusing only for those involved to see themselves. There isn't much of a plot or story to it. I do not want to take away Concudan's "feel good" piece because I once had a side job contributing to a program guide for a pay tv station and I know how much work it is to get an article like that together. Only simular to the face thread here... you kind of look at it, smile and move on. What makes a little film like this work over the longer term is the same as in the professional productions. You need an event to build towards, hopefully with a bit of tension or conflict. Happily ever after movies are boring as hell unless some complication pops up which may... (but hardly ever does)... cause the whole show to fall together like a house of cards. The last couple of weeks I have been rooting around in the depths of the archives here to find something to build a story around. And suddenly... eureka! There is was! You have to read down to post #144 to see the deal being made. http://www.bolttalk.net/forums/showthread.php?p=244644&highlight=youtube vick#post244644 Besides the cooperation of the two main "actors", I would need to interview of some of the community here to have a few comments on the spectacle and to explain a bit about themselves. Plus I'll need lots of you to be present as extras... (hopefully in full costume)... to add to the festive spirit of the occasion. I have always wanted to document my pilgramage down to San Diego. It would be great if some of you could contribute a few ideas and thoughts in this thread as I prepare. As to whether it comes off... please vote in the poll and let's have a little fun with it.
