Congratulations to "Back on Board Greg Louganis" director Cheryl Furjanic. The project received the most votes to win August's Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
If you’re a filmmaker (or know one) and you want us to consider an in-production film for our Project of the Day column, fill out the form here.
When Greg Louganis hit his head on the diving board at the 1988 Seoul Games, it was an unforgettable moment. But when, despite his injury, he earned the highest single score for his next dive and win the Gold, it was among the most incredible feats in history.
BACK ON BOARD is an engrossing story about an American legend and his comeback. Film reveals Louganis’ evolution from childhood prodigy to Olympic champion, from pioneering openly gay athlete with HIV to an overlooked sports icon. His return to diving as mentor to USA divers at Olympics provides new chapter of life-story.
And take a look at the film's Kickstarter video:
