Filmmaker Michael Hamilton, had worked with Steve Nash in the past and became inspired by the two-time MVP as not only a basketball player, but as a man, and decided to film a documentary about Nash.
Nash: A Documentary Film had completed filming, but requires additional editing, music, and requiring the rights to photos and other parts of the film. Hamilton does not want to have Nash involved in the financing as he believes it goes against what being a true documentarian is all about, so he has created a Kickstarter looking for $110,000.
Receiving Steve’s permission to document his life in the film was paramount in getting this project off the ground. However, even though Steve is the main focus of the film, in NO way is he or his production company involved creatively or in the day to day of making this film. As a true documentarian having your subject involved any way financially goes against all documentary film making. It was our goal to make this film as authentic as possible and didn’t feel we could do that if our subject was involved in any way other than getting his permission.
For those with the funds, the higher-end gifts offer you a chance to appear in the film. To appear in the credit sequence of the DVD it will cost a $7,000 pledge, and for $8,000 the person who pledges will appear in the feature itself, and talk about Steve Nash.
See the video below, and head over to the Kickstarter account if you want to pledge to the project.
