Adam Scheiner wants to produce a movie that features an Olympic weightlifter as the main character. After working with him for several months, it is evident to me that he wants badly to display the beauty of the sport, as well as pay tribute to the courage and perseverance of those who pursue it. It truly is a great script and has the potential to be a great, great movie. And a popular movie about an Olympic weightliter could do wonders for the popularity of the sport.
There are backers who are interested in funding the project. But there is one hoop to jump through. Although Adam has worked in the film industry for some time, he has yet to produce a feature length film. So he has to prove himself and the concept by producing a short film of less than 10 minutes that presents the general idea and concept of the movie. He has a cast for the short (which includes Donny Shankle), and a date set for shooting.
But he is still short of raising enough money to shoot the short. He has 4 more days to reach his goal.
