Call for CrossFitters of all ages and abilities.
What was going on in the weightroom on Thursday August 14?
The benching bench was occupied for 3+ hours and you may have seen the filmcrew of Weighted Films (aka Anke Sanders, Joe Fan, and Todd Pazol) walk or stand around three cameras, and a set of bright lights while fellow CrossFitters were in the hot seat answering questions about… CrossFit! But why?
“Joe and I met a few weeks ago and talked about possibly doing a documentary about CrossFit. We decided that it would be good to start out doing shorts in which we document certain aspects of CrossFit. We came up with a long list of interesting angles and topics, and created the project ‘FACES OF CROSSFIT.’ We are fascinated by the variety of people we see at MBS, as well as the different skill levels, goals, and personalities that each and everyone of us brings to our community.”
So, we decided to ask Pat if he would support our project. He did and connected us with Todd, who had similar plans. In fact, we will also put together a promotional video for MBS. Therefore, we are looking to interview as many members of MBS as possible.
We just had our first filming night – that’s what was going on in the weightroom, and we are planning to have several more, and also want to film during WODs. We are very thankful to those who have already showed their faces and those who said they will. We would like to invite everyone else to support us as well. Of course, we respect everyone’s privacy and would like to make sure that those who DO NOT want to be in our film let us know, so that we can blur their faces out, should they appear in the random WOD/gym life footage that we will take.
To make it easy on everyone, please go to the following survey and either complete it with consent (we then contact you about an interview) or without (that way we have your name and can blur your face!). The survey also gives you ideas about what our questions may be or how you could answer them. Click here for the survey. By the way, from the first set of interviews we know that interviews’ length depends on the interviewee. We had everything from 5 to 15 minutes!
Finally, if you want more information or have questions email Anke at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support and keep up your great work!
