About two weeks ago I had a chance to meet with Erik Greenburg Anjou, director of one of the two Ivy League football documentaries we've been waiting to see.
Erik told me the simple issue is funding, (not a surprise), but that he and co-producer Mark Bernstein are geting closer to reaching their goal.
They've also changed the name of the film to "Eight: Ivy League Football and America."
Columbia alum and former footballer Brian Dennehy is now doing the narration for the film, so at least the Lions will be well-represented throughout.
This film is NOT to be confused with the project spearheaded by Columbia alum George Gianfrancisco, titled "The League," which also looks good.
Here's what I've learned about the independent movie-making business in the last year: It's even more expensive and difficult that I thought, (and I really thought it was hard already).
I'm not sure which documentary will hit theaters or just be available on DVD, but I do know we should support both.
If anyone reading this has any connections to distributors, or just plain financial backers, who might be interested in helping these movies finally get released, don't keep it to yourself.
