Pétanque tournament Documentary on the way

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2010-08-17




This year's Pétanque tournament in Amelia Island Florida is going to be documented by an independent film production group called UBKStudios. They are a group of low budget independent film makers from Chicago. They first learned about the game while traveling to Cannes France as part of the Cannes Film Festival. The short documentary about Pétanque, "Ludo", won an award for best Cinematography at the Real Ideas Studio Festival.

Shortly after, UBK was contacted by Philippe Boets from Pétanque America and offered the chance to document the Tournament at Amelia Island. They will be making a short instructional film as well as a 30minute short covering the festival itself. Beyond that they plan on making a feature length documentary on the game and the people who play it.

UBK is a small group made up of young film makers with out big budgets. They are currently looking for help of any kind to make this film a reality. For more info you can check out - UBKStudios.com - Indiegogo - and the Facebook Fan Page.
