Filmmaker Scott Abramovitch discusses Alive and Kickinghis upcoming film about soccer moms and how starting a woman’s soccer league changes their lives on and off the field. Based on the true story/book written by New York Times bestselling author Harvey Araton, the movie is an underdog sports story focusing on a group of multi-ethnic women who learn what it means to be teammates and friends. Abramovitch, who wrote the screen adaption, will be directing this motion picture, and his company is producing it along with U.S. soccer icon Mia Hamm, actor Gil Bellows, and Mediabiz’ Karine Martin. Luc Montpellier (Away from Her ) is also on board to do the cinematography. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to help raise funds to shoot the movie. Abramovitch hopes the timing is right because of the Women’s World Cup and the incredible performance of the US team. Movie fans should be interested in the exciting film-related rewards being offered during this Kickstarter campaign, and Abramovitch has agreed to discuss some of them during his interview.
