My dear readers, all 6 of you … including myself. Film Douglas blog is going all social and interactive etc etc, bla bla … I’m currently putting the finishing touches to my documentary about insane football fans in Iceland. During the last 3 years of production of this film we’ve never had a good enough title for the movie, we’ve been unhappy with Iceland FC, The Twelfth Man, Crazy Football etc, all these working titles haven’t really been it.
Now it’s your chance to help us, come up with a title … and if it’s the title that we choose, before we lock the edit on the 23rd of April, then you will be credited as “Special Advisor” on the movie credits. Amazing title and you might potentially have your first IMDB credit, isn’t that something to show off to your friends on your smartphone, over a beer?
The film is essentially about Icelandic men who are obsessive football fans, they’re not fans of Icelandic teams, but fans of English Premiership teams, 85% of Icelandic men support a team in England … about 5% could say that they support their local team as religiously. We follow them around throughout one season, learn about their passion, learn about their reasons, learn about the break-up of their marriage.
