Report of Lambeau & Black Earth Wiffle Ball

We had a great time at St. Norbert's College and Lambeau Field during the Sport and Society Conference and film festival.

The highlight video includes shots of St Norbert's college, Lambeau Field, and Rookies Clubhouse and Authentic Regulation Wiffle Ball Field.

Here is the trophy we won. Isn't it spectacular?



Why We Enter Festivals?

The goal is to preserve and share the stories of the Ghost Players. Entering festivals is our main way of promoting this goal in hopes of attracting a distributor or sales agent to get our story to more people. We aren't looking to make millions or even thousands on this film but if we just give the film away, we won't ever re-coop some of the expenses of making it and promoting it.

Film to Screen at All Sports LA Film Festival

all sports film fest That's right, it is almost time for GHOST PLAYER to screen in Hollywood. The film festival will be July 10 and 11 and will celebrate sports and competition. The movie will be showing at the Mary Pickford Theater around 3pm on that Sunday.

This unique sporting-film fest is in its second year and looks to be an amazing event. Being in Hollywood is cool enough in it's own right but the fact that the film will be screened at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood is out-of-this-world exciting given that this is the oldest, continuing movie studio on the planet! That's right, in 1915 back when even baseball itself was young Hollywood greats like Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin were walking in the same spaces where this event will take place.

Thanks to the great people at Brand Source and Metro Studios, we will be sending Hank Lucas and Joe Scherrman to represent the team and movie at the filmmaker's events on Friday, July 9th. Having such strong sponsors believe in this movie is a humbling experience and we will do our sponsors proud! Teamwork guys, it is all about teamwork!

It is great to think that Hank will be going, as he was a former Dodger before he was a ghost player.
