Legit Bike Polo

Filming at the NACCC

I’m heading down to the North American Cycle Courier Championships to win the main race and bring pride and glory to all City Express couriers.  Just Kidding.

I’m actually going down to play and film polo.  According to Brendt from the Bike Film Festival, they’re looking for a quality in-depth polo film for next year’s showings.  The NACCC may well be the best event to follow for such a film (besides the recently passed Toronto world tournament), and I’d love to make something happen there.  I’ve got a rough outline of what I think fits the criteria.

I’d like to follow four (or more/less) teams from around the country/Canada through the tournament, finding out their stories/backgrounds and their thoughts after each match in quick interviews.  The rules of the game would be covered as well as some general background info, but the emphasis would be on how the game is evolving around the country/world and where it’s going, told entirely by players.

What would you like to see (or not see) in a film about bike polo?

I think the best film out there right now is Sunday School.
