Thanks to everyone that contributed and pledged money to the Chains Disc Golf Documentary in hopes to help fund this Incredible Movie!!! All though the goal was not reached, not all is lost, this Documentary will still happen.
The Chains Director, Derek Hastings, has enough Disc Golf footage to make 6 Movies at this point and has future plans to make others but due to time constraints with other Video Projects (2011 World's & Vibram DVD's) it has taken longer than expected to make the first Chains Movie finished. This has been a passion for him for 6 years and it has taken that long to produce the film because it has a been a side-project for that long as well, because as you can imagine it doesn't pay the bills. He has had to resort to working many NFL Network side jobs in that time just to make it happen. But he is by far the Best Video/Film Talent that we have in Disc Golf at this point and we'll all be grateful when these films finally release but it's a lot of work and takes a lot of time to do so.
The sole purpose (End Goal) of this Documentary is to educate the people that have never heard of Disc Golf and make Disc Golf look cool in the eyes of people that have never played before. This sport is awesome, from the flight of the Disc to the ringing of the Chains, we just want others out there to experience the same emotion & attraction to Disc Golf that all of us Disc-fanatics feel. I still get chills when I watch some of Music Video cuts that Derek has edited and I can only imagine what others emotions Disc Golfers will feel when they see this Film!!!
It's ultimate goal of promoting our sport to the masses of people that will hopefully enjoy it as much as we do now. We were just looking for die-hard Disc Golfers that love the sport that they play and want to support something that gives what they are doing some justification of their Disc-Addiction, they play for the love, they play for the passion. They play because they truly love Disc Golf.It's the thoughtfulness of those that pledged that will drive the following of the Chains Documentary, you are truly the Mover & Shakers in the Disc Golf Community that see the Overall Good that a Movie like this will bring to the Sport of Disc Golf.

PS - Message from the Director, Derek Hastings - " Thank you to everyone who supported our efforts on Kickstarter! We will continue to search for a way to raise money to pay extensive licensing fees attached to current footage and music. Hopefully, Chains will be available to the masses in the not to distant future."
