Bounce Italian Correspondent: Matteo Bruni AKA Coach Brown from Streetball 360…
…a couple of years ago three students from the 3D Movie Academy – Supinfocom – in Arles, France, became inspired when they saw the movie “Rebound – The Legend of Earl ‘The Goat’ Manigault.” This short movie “From the Hoops” takes place on the streets of Harlem and at the world famous Rucker Park Playground. For more information on the short go to www.fromthehoop.com.
Back in 2008 some students from SupInfocom Arles (South of France) reached out to me about a special project built around streetball legend Earl “The Goat” Manigault and Rucker Park. From the Hoop is a short 3D movie inspired by his life on the streets of Harlem. In the short, Earl tries to escape his fears and malaise embodied by two satanic ballers. The chase ends up in the “holy place” of Rucker park where the Goat is challenged on the court by his two assailants. It becomes a furious battle for the small guard’s life as he reaches his salvation thanks to his basketball skills.
Peep the short movie below and the making of on the official website : http://www.fromthehoop.com/
Congrats to Rémi Dessinges, Anthony Arnoux and Guillaume Fesquet for this beautiful tribute to Earl Manigault.
