Update on Martial Arts TV documentary
More update on the martial arts documentary,
As you know I put up a post asking for suggestions for a 3 part documentary series on wushu/internal arts/traditional martial arts. The broadcaster development officer liked the idea and thought it would be great, so I put together a proposal. I hear back from the broadcaster who said that his boss (the head guy at this big Canadian broadcaster) gave it a quick no.
When I asked him why, he said that they were looking for exciting limited series and that tai chi was a little bit slowÖthat martial arts if done right could be exciting, but he got the quick no. Iím questioning whether or not he read the proposal as tai chi was less than 1/3 of it, but regardless he made it clear that he (and his boss) thought that Chinese Martial Arts is not exciting enough. This is what I encounter a lot, people who donít know what CMA are.
Iím going to be sending this around to other places, but I think Iíll put together short video (anyone want to help?) to show them what it is.
But I have a request for you guys. Can you post some links to some high quality and cool pictures of wushu or anything to do with wushu? I will include these in the next proposal. Thanks!
