Help Kickstart the Jay DeMerit Documentary
The last time I co-signed on a documentary about a USMNT player the film never got released. But then again the film's subject, Claudio Reyna, was stinking it up on the field at a dear salary so perhaps the lack of enthusiasm around the project had little to do with my sad attempt at cheer-leading.
Hopefully the Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story turns out a little bit better. With your help and today's launch of a Kickstarter campaign around the project there's a good change that this baby will see the light of day; having viewed the film and spoken to Jay about it I can tell you that it's a movie worth seeing and a story that deserves to be told.
The cool thing about this campaign is that you can actually get something for your cash other than a good feeling. Depending on much paper you put down you can receive anything from a DVD of the film to signed cleats from DeMerit to a day on the pitch with the film's subject.
So go give damnit! This film isn't going to finish financing itself!
