Reply last time I came this quickly my GF left me. Reply what??? Holy fuck Reply We need a John North cameo in this lol Reply Zack as the lead in a film? Reply i cant wait to see this come to light. i love this. i will for sure be donating whatever i can. Reply Fuck yeah. Let’s bring some spotlight back on this beautiful beautiful sport. You got my axe, and my money Reply nice Reply Seriously Reply It’s about time giraffes get representation in films. Reply I would imagine a lot of the budget will be spent on stilts to get the other actors in the same frame as Zack. Either way, I’m going to watch this shit ! Reply Holy shit dude, this is so fucking awesome, congraaaaaaaats,Lockdowns hitting me pretty hard financially so I can't really make any meaningful donation right now, but I'd love to do what I can in the moment and when shit clears up give this project what it really deserves; I truly hope for the sake of the entire world that this tree gets to bear fruit Reply This is so unexpected and fucking AWESOME. I'll make sure to support however I can! Reply Also, jokes aside this seems like a really dope project, you can bet your ass we are excited to see you on the screen in this kind of medium. I feel like in the past few years weightlifting has seen a resurgence in popularity and worked it's way into the mainstream, no thanks to the digital personalities such as yourself who provide excellent guidance, advice and motivation to get under a bar. Mr Zack, you're continuing to find new and awesome ways to promote the sport. Props. Reply Hopefully will get to see harry squatter in this Reply This would be dope!! Reply Wait isn't there a Turkish movie about Naim Suleimanoglu that's already done? But I guess that's about his life and weightlifting is secondary in it. Reply Do you need a Weightlifter who can weightlift & has training as an actor and is of South Asian ( Pakistan) from England. Reply Damn I wanna see this now 🙁 Reply Pls bring Clarence in Reply Please get Clarence a short role in it!! Reply Introducing Zack felt like a twist at the end. Zack is a comedian who is training to take on a serious role. That can be an adjustment for the audience. Reply This guy is about to become Tall Hanks .. Ha ! Sorry Reply Oh my GOD this is going to be awesome!! Reply If Clarence Kennedy doesn't meme in this film, I'm gonna sue for false advertising. Reply As interested as I am in this movie, I would be completely shocked if it’s a financial success, nonetheless I hope that it is Reply I guess they are going to use REAL weights in this movie. No props needed! Reply This is gonna hit harder than Lu dropping an empty barbell Reply That beard!! I'll donate for that alone. Reply Wwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooooo caress Reply Imagine casting donny shankle and his lion manly voice for a cameo and some manly no of lines Reply Bring Clarence into this film!!! Reply Get Clarence on this fam. Reply Also this is DOPE AF!!!!!!! Reply They did a movie about arm wrestling for god sake. I would see this because I am weightlifter. A very good friend of ours from Ukraine, Zahnna Ivanovich, who was jr. world champion power lifter and covered powerlifting as translator and ambassador, approach Arnold at big event and ask him why no movie about powerlifting. He told her straight out that it would make no money and only handful of people interested. He just walk away. Then movie comes out a few years ago about aspiring jazz drummer and gets nominated for Oscar. Crazy. And was total farce about being jazz drummer. I wish success for this film. Because…who knows. Reply Honestly i feel like i need to see tgis film thank you zack for supporting something real Reply And a "Star is Born". Reply You can do it Zack! You got this. Can't wait to watch. Reply Don't get your hopes up Reply i legitimately gasped when coach appeared Reply Is calerence part of it ???????? Reply YOOOOO this will be sick Reply Fucking SOLD Reply With everything that coach Zack has done to help us weightlifters and the community, he really deserves a donation from his viewers Reply Cool. Reply Thumbs up. Reply im proud of you. this is fantastic. absolutely this will be a cause to support and follow. Reply I'm a filmmaker here with some ideas about how you might be able to get funding. What would be the best way to contact either of you guys? Reply I really hope this comes to pass. I can't even begin to think of all the possible aspects of weightlifting and strength culture in general that I would love to see in film. Reply Boom, donated. Reply You can see that Zack is a good actor from the Milly Rockin' in the corner skit Reply This is a great idea, would be greater if he guaranteed us a Clarence squat to be in the movie and then a backflip, just sayin. Reply Sounds like a cool project. Congrats on your acting debut Z. If you need a short fat guy to be an extra let me know. I can also do a Russian accent. Reply Can a guy with femurs that long be an actor? 😉 Reply 3:50: Judging by the mustache, I'm gonna guess that the movie will be set in the 1970s in the porn industry… 😉 Reply This is gonna be so sick! Reply Clarence should be the old coach dad Reply We need to get rogue to sponsor this film Reply The film looks like its about the fucking Random dude… i wouldnt support that… i dont give a sht what he does or what hes been through, unless he was an olympic gold medalist. What i want is a movie that focuses on the story of weightlifting and how different people compete and sturggle to get on the podium. the current documentary about weightlifting doesnt tell much about the sport but more about people. I want to see a film about the SPORT!! Reply You look pretty good with the beard. Reply Zack Efron Reply Get Clarence to squat heavy in the background and have everyone mirin Reply Thats amazing, so excited for you guys ❤ Reply No steroids? I don't believe it Reply OMG that Donny Shankle short film truly touched my heart! I loved every second, and kinda related to it even though I have never competed. I really hope that this whole thing comes through. In my culture of Islam, today is a holiday we call Eid, and it's a day of charity and giving; parents give gift their children, siblings gift each other and so on. Since I really believe in this cause, all the money I gain today from family will be donated as little as it, I just hope that it helps. Big love,Ahmed Reply I wish you ALL the luck in this project! If I had any leftover funds, I would help with your kickstarter! Reply CLEARANCE and MAX AITA should not be left behind and i would also love to see Greg Everett in some point on the film Reply No Clarence no money Reply This gonna be great! Reply zack this isn't what i meant when i paid to see your scheiner on patreon Reply Clarence needs a cameo in this movie. Reply Zack reminds me of Ashton Kutcher Reply Get after it Zack! Such a cool project! Respect! Reply Please make a Clarence cameo happen Reply Damn, the boy is an actor now! Reply I cannot wait for the movieRESPECT for all of you love from albania Reply Can we get a California Strength movie in the vain of "Pain and Gain". Reply This is where my stimulus check is going to Reply Clarence Kennedy Reply I think this is the first Kickstarter I've ever given to. It's not much (exchange rates are a bitch when you're not American), but hope it helps. Reply Sounds like a fun project ! Reply Why wouldn’t he take steroids? It’s not like every other champion isn’t lol Reply This is an amazing project, the history of weightlifting goes deeper than any other sport in my opinion and there are stories that bring people like us to tears that other people could care less about. I hope that this puts weightlifting just that bit closer to the mainstream so that people can fully appreciate the sport and the people that dedicate their lives to it. Make this project one of the best things that will happen to the sport, if anyone is to do it it should be you all. Reply Beyond excited Reply Wow….! What a great idea/plan…. I wish you the very best of luck going forward with this project…. Reply Fucking finally. Reply Theres a South Korean movie based on a true story that came out in 2009 called Lifting King Kong does that not count as a WL movie? Reply This would be so insane for the sport and I'm getting chills just thinking about it. Reply bro i'll donate 1,000 for a personal seminarlet me know, i live in san antonio! Reply Never thought this day would come…TAKE MY MONEY Reply $30 sent towards it. I would absolutely love to see this film become reality! Also a huge fan of your commitment passion and dedication to the sport! Keep doing what you're doing! Reply Zack Telander is going to be an actor? Reply Honestly, high level WL is definitely dependent upon your level of physical fitness, your body that you have. But as a professional actor in the strength sports community, I'd wager both skills absolutely require equitable amounts of time and effort. People go to conservatories and train 12 hours a day for up to four years to develop decent acting skills. And then some continue into graduate level conservatories as well. It's a lot of commitment. Reply Zack's lil monologue did it for me, I really hope this gets the traction to succeed Reply I’m so stoked about this, so hoping this gets off the ground! Reply I’m all for this project! I’ll be sharing this to everyone that’s passionate about weightlifting. Wish you guys the best of luck. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
