Why is SANDOW important?
"Sandow is an interesting screenplay that revolves around a fascinating subject...An interesting and untold story....truly powerful stuff"http://www.bluecatscreenplay.com
Sandow is the extraordinary story of a legendary oldtime strongman. The man you may never have heard of, his story you will never forget. Before bodybuilding existed, one man dared to challenge the status quo and build something new. Sandow is a passionate tale of struggle in the face of adversity, and of one man's desires and dreams. Sandow is a fascinating and untold story, a cultural icon who everyone wanted a piece of. Sandow. What builds the perfect man?
Co- written by Alexander Cooper, who will appear as Launceston Elliot alongside Andrei Lenart as Sandow; it will be a showcase of some of the world's best new acting, writing and directorial talent; as well as an unforgettable journey into other times and places. Think Gatsby meets Rocky meets Chariots of Fire!Why is it important that the Sandow campaign gets funded?
Sandow is an interesting and untold story inspired by two real world athletes, Launceston Elliot the first British Olympic Champion and his trainer Eugen Sandow. It's important that the campaign gets funding because Sandow is a passionate tale of struggle in the face of adversity, and of a man’s desires and dreams. Sandow is a fascinating and untold story, of a cultural icon who everyone wanted a piece of,it is an important film which needs backers to bring it to the screen.
In one sentence, what makes the project most unique? :)There are not many films made about sports nowadays but in particular there are not many films about how sports have developed showing the beginnings of the professional sportsman and Olympic athletes combined with a period setting; the film deals with universal themes- I believe there is a Sandow in us all; this I believe is what makes Sandow a most unique project.
