I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but all the holiday craziness hasn’t slowed the process. I’ve been nose-deep in the edit of the film and it’s slowly starting to take shape. I’m finding some very interesting insight into the art of the bag. On thing that seems to pop-up a lot in the interviews is the influence the film “Rocky” has had on this generation of speed bagger. It was mentioned by quite a few of the baggers and was something that stuck in their minds, ultimately getting them to start bagging. After seeing this common connection, I’ve attempted to contact Sly (we’ll see where that goes)…wish me luck. Either way, I find it interesting how a classic film like “Rocky” sticks in our minds for years to come. I clearly remember seeing this film in the theatre on it’s release…one of my all-time favorites to this day.
Quick little teaser….
So, Sly (Mr. Stallone), if you do happen to see my email and view this post, please get in touch…I think you might really enjoy this film and the speed bag community that you have influenced! What is it that NIKE says, “Just Do It”.
Here’s wishing everyone a very happy & successful New Year!
