    He also wishes to provide some equipment too.. hopefully this will pan out

    This all sounds great, thanks for the boost! Please have them get in touch with me through the Kickstarter Campaign: http://kck.st/IdOnPI
    I hope something comes of it.

    That said.... only 7 days to go but I haven't raised even a 20% of the goal , so it's not looking good at this point. Please, if you're at all into the speed bag, just starting out or an addict like a bunch of us here...pledge something. Even a $1.00 pledge helps to keep the campaign moving forward. Every little bit helps & remember, if I don't reach the goal, NO MONEY IS COLLECTED....so it won't cost a thing and you can use that money to buy yourself a new bag or one of the awesome swivels our fellow members have designed and built!

    Onward... FYI, I just booked my room for Speed B.A.G. III and can't wait to get down there and start the interviews....and just shoot everything. Permissions are in place for the Real Gymm, so practice-up folks, I'm counting on you all to show the world your speed bag licks!

      Great idea Zaza !
      This documentary sounds like an interesting project, an obscure story worthy of telling!
      It sure does make one wonder where the idea came from in the first place?

        Well.... being a filmmaker and a speed bag addict...it seemed like a natural to me.

            Thanks Ralph.... 63 hours to go and at this point there's not any hope of it funding.

            Once the campaign ends, I'll be in touch as any independent support will be most appreciated....and yes, I'm still going to make the film, it's just going to take a bit longer as I have to fund it myself.

            Thanks for the support.

                if we could get more members for this forum speedbagforum like in the five thousand range then maybe we can get more support for your movie. we just don't have the members. how can we get more members ? maybe open up the range to get more members here, like more heavy bag people, double end bag people, mook jong people, things like that some of us don't just hit the speed bag. we need more people coming here...ralph

                    Yeah... not as much interest as I thought in the film? With over 1200 members here, there have only been 7 pledges from forum members (Thank you guys SO much...you know who you are). It's just nice to know you have a little support.

                    No worries, like I've said before, this film will be made because I believe in the subject and think it will make an outstanding story that others will want to hear.

                    See you all in Keyport in July!

                        got a notice from Kickstarter that it did not fund....

                        You know that feeling you get, in the middle of a really great workout, when everything seems great and your rippin' it up.... and then your bag goes flat, bladder blown?

                        Yep, that's kinda how it feels.

                        except a little worse.

                          Unfortunately, your project, "Art of the Bag" - A Speed Bag Story, was not successfully funded. Because funding on Kickstarter is all or nothing, all pledges have been automatically canceled.

                          We understand the hard work that goes into running a project, and we hope it helped to build connections with your community.

                          Best,
                          Kickstarter Staff

                          Thanks to everyone who did support the film.... it was worth a shot....now I'll see you all in Keyport so I can get some great interviews and speed bag footage.

                          Lets get this film started!

                            they say, when you come to a fork in the road, take it. The secret is recognizing the forks, and this appears to be one, but we will perservere.

                              Like baseball, speed baggin' is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.

                                Sorry to hear that as well. I sent you a PM with some thoughts. I will support the film in any way I feasibly can. It's a great story and it is overdue to be told!
