I fear that this documentary may make me hate the filmmakers.
U-dawg is a precious treasure of the earth, any mistreatment of him will be met with a whole galaxy of hate.
The doc site almost makes me think it'll be more than just a lark:

Uli may have what it takes to be the best downhill mountain biker ever. brb making a kickstarter to get him a bike

Neat subject wasted on nearsighted amatuers.
Exactly. I'm afraid that the doc is going to be about them and their artistic process rather than Ul.
Their trailer was 80% gross flashy formalism, 10% images of a flood and 10% their subject, so if that is any representation of their final product....
the more i think about the trailer the grosser it gets. The most attention it gave to the person the project is allegedly about had HUGE EXPOSITORY TITLES SLATHERED EVERYWHERE, literally blocking out the image of the person they are documenting. I can't think of a better representation of crude documentary ethic. Instead of seeing this guy doing things, we are being told by the filmmakers in HUGE LETTERS that he does things, and these HUGE LETTERS literally prevent me from seeing the guy. A+
also, how can you not introduce his sisyphean struggle to finish Platform Masters in the trailer? IT IS THE TITLE OF YOUR FILM AND A CENTERPIECE OF YOUR SUBJECT'S LIFE. NOT TO MENTION AN INCREDIBLE NARRATIVE CONCEIT HANDED TO YOU ON A SILVER PLATTER. But yeah i guess the flood is super important. Oh yeah and you gotta make your subject look kooky with goofy music. Fuck you.
man im drunk

wow!! ul is a lot cooler looking than I pictured him :)
He's a lot more redneck looking than I expected.
I always imagined him to look like Chris-chan (I'm glad he doesn't).
Incidentally, that's music from the Spyro the Dragon, Playstation game.
