In the last few months, our work on our upcoming documentary “Better” has brought us all around the US, and halfway across the world.
Last week I traveled to Finland to shoot another important aspect of our story for Better. The subject of our film, Dom Kegel, is playing professional (American) football in Seinajoki, Finland. The purpose of this trip was to document Dom’s expérience there, and to also shoot a game.
The travel was intense, and in my quick 4 day trip, I covered 4528 miles by car, plane, bus, train, bike, skateboard, and foot. But it was a great trip.
Finland is beautiful. It is heavily forested, mild temperature, and so far north that the sun never sets. The people there are very friendly, love good food and long drink, and are all very excited and supportive of our project.
There was an exciting development to our story while we were there. Dominic’s wife Susan, who is currently traveling the world as she serves in the US Air Force, had something special to share with Dom via Skype, and we were fortunate enough be there to capture it.
Congrats Dom and Susan!
Now that we are past the halfway point in our filming, we are in preperations to launch a Kickstarter campaign to finish this project. We hope that our hard work and financial commitment to complete half of this film will show good faith that, with some help, we can comeplete this project and impact a lot of people in a postive way with this film.
Thanks again to everyone for the continued support of this project, and we are excited to release more clips as we progress.
