Hey you guys, remember back when I posted D Magazine's Michael Mooney's story about Bill Fong—The Greatest Bowling Story Ever. Quick refresh: Bill Fong came within one pin of bowling a perfect 900—three straight perfect games—when he had a stroke.
Well, now an ambitious guy named Joey Daoud is working on a documentary about Fong's story that he's calling "Strike," and he's got a Kickstarter page going for it. He asked if I'd tell you peeps about it since I liked Fong's story so much, and I was like, "Sure, dude!"
Reason being, Daoud is a completely independent filmmaker and he's financing the whole thing himself. His Kickstarter promo video is of him in the car driving from Florida, where he lives, to Texas to shoot the thing. I can dig that kind of passion. Also, his last documentary, Bots High, looks about as B.A. as you can make a documentary about nerds creating robots that destroy each other can look. Here's a link to his page about that: click.
Anyway, I was intrigued so I thought you all might be, thus I share. Daoud's Strike promo video is below, and his Kickstarter page is here.
