December 2021 Update
Adam, myself, and the entire ScoreG Productions Team want to wish the happiest of holidays and the most special of New Year's to everyone reading this. Over the break we hope you are able to take a few moments to appreciate what is most important in your life. For us, it’s the health and happiness of our loved ones.
The last few years have been nuts. While we have been fortunate to be able to travel and continue shooting, we have not had a live premiere of one of our films in over two years. To me, sharing something we worked so long and hard on with my friends and family is the best part of filmmaking. Thankfully we have some exciting news to share soon regarding premieres in Q1 2022.
This September the team began production on Dolph Lundgren’s feature documentary. Dolph has been a Hollywood action star for over 35 years, with nearly 100 acting credits to his name. But he is still best known for his first major film in 1985 – Rocky IV - where he portrayed the indomitable Russian, Ivan Drago. Our filming took us to Dolph’s longtime home in Marbella, Spain; his hometown of Stockholm, Sweden; a quick stopover in Geneva, Switzerland; and to London, UK where he was filming Expendables 4 and Aquaman 2 back to back. Four great countries in three weeks was a thrill to experience. But, as the guy who organizes our travel logistics, four countries with four different sets of Covid restrictions and protocols proved challenging! (Covid-19: “I must break you!”)
This month we were thrilled to finally announce that we have partnered with Jordin Tootoo for his feature documentary. Jordin broke barriers as the first Inuk player to lace up in the NHL. Adam, our Director Michael Hamilton and myself spent the day with Jordin in Kelowna working on some pre-production items. The day was capped off by a fantastic (and HUGE) meal cooked for us by Jordin’s wife, Jennifer, that we enjoyed with them in their beautiful home.
Behind the Scenes
The team is heading back to Sweden to film with Dolph and his family over New Years. It will be a great opportunity to have Dolph show us around the place he spent his formative years. One fascinating segment of the trip will be a few days in the northern Swedish town of Nyland – population 908 – where Dolph was shipped off to boarding school as a young boy.
Mid-January we will continue production on Dolph’s documentary with a trip to LA to interview some key characters from his life, highlighted by one of Dolph's most legendary co-stars. I'm not at liberty to say who, but it's going to be better than a Two Dollar Special. Also, brace yourselves for the obligatory In-N-Out Burger posts.
Following the shoot in LA the team is off to Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. While Adam and a contingent of his longtime friends have been attending the festival for the better part of a decade, this will be my first time there. Before working in film the extent of my knowledge about the festival came from Entourage, which told me it was a big opportunity!
