The Unreal Story Of Pro. Wrestling (Time: 1: 40 hr)

"Sure, wrestling is fake," admits narrator Steve Allen. "We wouldn't have it any other way." So much for ripping the lid off pro wrestling, but fear not--there may be no dirty little secret, but there is a colorful history. Digging way back to its roots--when it was a genuine athletic event and not "a soap opera with a referee"--the slow mutation of wrestling is analyzed in generous detail from its height at the turn of the 19th century to its nadir as a carnival sideshow attraction and urban entertainment during the Depression to its phoenix-like rebirth on early television to its modern-day explosion on cable. Interviews with modern stars, such as Hulk Hogan and veterans Classy Freddie Blassie and Killer Kowalski, wrestling historians, and even college professors tackle the subject from all sides, but the commentary is secondary to the spectacle provided by a rich array of clips--everything from prissy Gorgeous George's ringside sashays to midget wresting to a montage featuring the ubiquitous folding chair to the head. The Unreal Story of Pro Wrestling tends to emphasize the freak-show elements of the sport--which, granted, are much of the documentary's fun--but does capture the showmanship and crazy energy that has transformed a sideshow attraction into a gonzo spectacle in a format that manages to be informative and fun at the same time.

Barbed Wire City – The Unauthorized Story of ECW Documentary DVD - (Time: 1: 57 hr)

Description:

Own the new independent documentary film "BARBED WIRE CITY... THE UNAUTHORIZED ECW DOCUMENTARY". Please note: This DVD is not supported, nor owned by the W.W.E.

"Barbed Wire City... The Unauthorized ECW Documentary" is a film that studies the history of, and people who made, Extreme Championship Wrestling a cult sensation in the 1990s. We took an intimate look at the subculture of a subculture, and found a very human story about athletes who see themselves as entertainers, and were willing to take massive amounts of punishment for little money based on the promise of something more within their industry. This is a film about culture and human beings—who just happen to use tables and chairs and violent acts as part of their performance art. This documentary is not owned or supported by the WWE.

What Is The Documentary About: We like to call this the study of a subculture’s subculture. Pro Wrestling is a world that is an odd island to most people. In the 1990s, Extreme Championship Wrestling was the bizarre underground of that subculture. We wanted to bring the fascinating behind-the-scenes story of this promotion to the mainstream, its ups and its downs, from its beginning in the early 90s all the way into 2012. We’ve shot 50 hours of footage and conducted over 60 interviews to give context and accuracy to this oral history. This has been a labor of love, as the project began when both filmmakers were 19, in March of 2000.

Philapavage was a wrestling fan growing up, particularly captivated by Extreme Championship Wrestling as a teen. Kiernan, never a fan, brought a fresh perspective to the project. Much of the film was shot in 2001, before the film was put on hold the first time in 2002. Several times production of the film was resumed, but it was never completed, due to lack of funding. In January of this year the project was resurrected again with new eyes. 15 additional hours were shot, including three days at Extreme Reunion, a wrestling show in Philadelphia, where ECW alumni came together to reunite in front of roughly 2000 fans.

This film aims to take an honest, critical look at the history, legacy, and impact of ECW on the professional wrestling industry, as well as tell the stories of the men and women who helped build this small mom and pop promotion into a national force. We examine the violence and bloodshed, marketing and fan involvement, as well as the decisions of those in charge, through the company’s triumphs, glory years, controversies, and demise.

It also seeks to shed light on a group of people that came together with the goal of turning their industry on its head. The sacrifices they made trying to achieve it were often physically brutal, as they were chasing the dream of trying to create something innovative in professional wrestling. They succeeded by playing an often unheralded role in the creation of the cultural phenomenon that was the wrestling boom of the late 90’s, but failed to fully realize their dream of getting to the top of that swell of popular acceptance that they helped create. We want to tell their story.

Who Is In Our Film: We conducted over 60 different interviews, some with the same subjects twice, over a decade apart. Our approach to telling the story of Extreme Championship Wrestling and giving you proper context has been holistic in nature. We’ve interviewed journalists, wrestlers, referees, ring announcers, security staff, company staff and production, all the way to fans and fan organizers.

The wrestlers range from mainstays like Sandman, Raven, Shane Douglas, Balls Mahoney, Axl Rotten, New Jack, Mikey Whipwreck, The Blue Meanie, Stevie Richards, Nova, Ted Petty, and Johnny Grunge, to wrestlers from later years like Jerry Lynn, Angel and Devito of Da Baldies, Chris Chetti and Danny Doring, and Steve Corino.

We spoke with personalities like Joel Gertner, Sign Guy Dudley (Lou E.), and referee John Finagan. We interviewed the founder of Extreme Championship Wrestling, Tod Gordon, as well as early staff like Larry Winters, Bob Artese, Ed Zohn, Kathy Fitzpatrick, and longtime office workers like Gabe Sapolsky and Damien Farren, as well as later Extreme Championship Wrestling staffers like Dan Kowal. We also sat down with TV production man, Charlie Bruzzese. We sought out involved fans, like ECW Arena front row fan, John “Straw Hat Guy” Baily, and supporter/fan organizer, Tony Lewis. We have the head of Atlas Security, Ronnie Lang, as well as one of his trusted lieutenants, Joe Wilchak.

Finally, we have a wide array of context and analysis, as well as diverse opinions, from the journalists who covered Extreme Championship Wresting. Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer, Wade Keller and Bruce Mitchell from the Pro Wrestling Torch, Jason Powell of Prowrestling.Net, as well as wrestling photographer and historian, Bill Apter. Rounding out this list are Mike Johnson and Dave Scherer of PWInsider.com, who have the unique distinction of being early fans who became journalists, and also worked for the companies official website. We also spoke with Michael “Mad Dog” Tearson (a local Philadelphia journalist), Rob Feinstein of RF (ECW’s video tape partner), and Frank Talent of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission.

Life In The Fast Lane Documentary (Time: 2: 45 hr)

Professional wrestling can be looked in many different ways. In one regard, it is an old school boy's club full of incredible athletes performing death defying stunts and maneuvers. Many see it as a traveling circus with men who go from town to town performing in front of thousands every night. Whatever your personal take on wrestling is, the sport has created some of the most charismatic and interesting people in entertainment. While spending the majority of their days traveling, wrestlers have seen the world in a way very few people have and the staff at RF VIDEO have been trying for months to figure out a unique way in to get that road experience across to our viewers.

This is the story of filmmaker Brian Harrison's childhood heroes: The Von Erich Brothers. It tells of the small Dallas promotion run by Fritz Von Erich in the 1980's that became the innovator of professional wrestling's worldwide exposure via television syndication.

With his three oldest sons as the franchise stars, WCCW was one of the most syndicated shows in the world, until a string of shocking tragedies drove the family and the promotion down a path no one could have imagined. Today one Von Erich, Kevin, remains, his four younger brothers among the stars who found a tragic end in the downfall of World Class.

HEROES OF WORLD CLASS is a story of surviving unspeakable tragedy and a tribute to an unforgettable era.




Dynamite Kid- A Matter of Pride Documentary DVD (2 Discs) - (Signed by Dynamite Kid Comes with C.O.A.) - (Time: 1: 48 hr)

The definitive documentary about wrestling legend Dynamite Kid and his impact in the world of professtional wrestling.

This project began when traveling to Manchester, England to conduct a simple interview with Tom Billington about his wrestling career. Prior to this interview, nobody knew very much about what happened to Dynamite Kid since he retired from pro wrestling and nobody had been able to unravel the myths surrounding his legacy. Perhaps more than any other wrestler, Tom Billington was a recluse, never agreeing to do interviews, appearances, or even maintaining contact with his old friends from wrestling. After conducting the interview with the reclusive Billington, we realized that he had an amazing story that could not be told merely by his own, humbled words. Therefore, with the help of a lot of generous donors through Kickstarter, we set out on a worldwide traveling endeavor to interview those that knew Dynamite Kid the best and those that still keep in touch with him today. What resulted was a very emotional journey into a career cut short by the abuses of steroids, alcohol, drugs, and a complete disregard for his own physical limitations.

Dynamite Kid started as a young Englishmen trained in the infamous Snake Pit by Ted Betely and turned an opportunity given to him by the Hart Family in Calgary into a phenomenal worldwide wrestling career. He arguably saved a dying Stampede Wrestling and turned that small Western Canadian territory into an internationally acclaimed promotion. Dynamite Kid was on the front lines of changing professional wrestling from a big man carnival act into an exciting action based entertainment industry where lightweight and physically gifted performers were the focal point of the show. He dazzled an international audience with matches against Tiger Mask that are still a bench mark today.


Perhaps best known by modern wrestling fans as a member of the British Bulldogs, this documentary covers the unique relationship between Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith and how the team was on bad footing from the inception.


The most talked about locker room fight in WWF history is storied for the first time by Dynamite as well as all the other key locker room figures of that time.


Dynamite Kid was considered to be 20 years ahead of his time and his influence is still very visible today. Unfortunately, for personal issues there is a dark shadow over his legacy. This documentary digs deeper and gets to the heart of this complex wrestling revolutionary.

Jim Crockett Promotions: The Good Old Days (3 Disc Set) - (Time: 2 Hours)

Description:

We have produced "shoot interviews" with wrestling legends before and we have even completed a bigger challenge, the Dynamite Kid Documentary funded on Kickstarter.

Now we have produced the definitive documentary on Jim Crockett Promotions and how that company impacted wrestlers, wrestling fans, and the wrestling world. We cover from it's beginnings up until it was sold to Ted Turner.

Thanks to your financial support, we have acquired the licensing rights to some never before seen handheld footage from Mr. George Pantas. Mr Pantas was a videographer that lived in Virginia and was given special permission by the promoters to shoot ringside. This footage was shot over the mid 70s to 1983 and will provide some fantastic B roll footage for the Crockett documentary.

Footage for talents like Wahoo McDaniel, Greg Valentine, Paul Jones, Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Dusty Rhodes, Roddy Piper, BlackJack Mulligan, and several more with NEVER BEFORE scene Arena footage. This is the only known footage of the Crockett promotion that is currently not owned by the WWE, so we're happy that it will now be part of the collection. We'll obviously use alot of this footage as "B roll" in the actual documentary, but we'll additionally have this footage to use on the "extras" that will be part of the 3 disc DVD release!

Hard Knocks DVD Pro Wrestling Documentary - (Time: 38 Min.)

Hard Knocks is the World's first ever award nominated documentary on Professional Wrestling, and the DVD features over 80 minutes of special features including additional interviews, deleted scenes, music videos, out takes and loads more.

Featuring stars of the WWE & TNA - Al Snow, BG James, CM Punk, D'lo Brown, Kip James, Mick Foley, Hardcore Holly & many more, along with independent wrestlers.


Synopsis

Hard Knocks is a 40 minute Documentary short on Professional Wrestling - an industry largely misunderstood by the general public and an industry that has been victim of ridicule time and time again. Over the past few years in particular, the professional wrestling world has been thrust into complete turmoil after the deceiving and biased portrayal of certain events by the national media. The deaths of top wrestlers in their prime as well as numerous steroid scandals have been used to kick the industry when it's down.

Hard Knocks dives deep into this bizarre fusion of sport and theatre in order to uncover the true art of professional wrestling; blending combat and athleticism with drama and showmanship to captivate the minds of the audience, suspending any disbelief that what they are seeing is not real. Although you can hardly epitomize it as simply "real" or "fake", there is no denying the tremendous skill and aptitude required of each performer. Yet despite this and the often harsh realities of each match, to most people, professional wrestling is a laughing stock.

Director Arthur Cauty interviews wrestlers, referees and promoters alike, with world famous stars of the WWE aligning with the stars of tomorrow to voice their opinions, revealing startling truths about this illusive business. This film will shock and astound, leaving you with a new found respect for professional wrestling and the men and women who dedicate their lives and bodies to this obscure art form.
