Brett has put out a call for assistance in the final stage of his documentary. A few years back he went with a crew to Paganello and started putting together a documentary. It’s an expensive project and has been mostly self funded. He’d like to finish the documentary up but needs to pay an editor for the last stage. It’s an expensive last stage and I’d like to request your assistance in helping us get video on a fantastic tournament attended by a fantastic group of people to the world.
