Update on "The Soccer Project"

Posted at 10:59 AM on May 19, 2009 by Euan Kerr

I am indebted to Brian Quarstad of the "Inside Minnesota Soccer" blog for this item about "Footplay," a documentary being shot under the auspices of "The Soccer Project."

It's a film shot in 25 countries around the world about the joy and culture of pick-up soccer. The two young film makers behind the project were in need of some cash to get the film finished, when Brian became interested in the doc. When he learned they needed votes to win a prize to finish the film he began spreading the word in the soccer blogosphere.

The long and the short of it is "Footplay" got the votes and the cash it needed for the final shooting trip to Iran, and also for new editing equipment. The film should be completed by the fall.

You can see a trailer for the film here.
