Here’s what “Small Market, Big Heart” is all about, according to the filmmakers.
Small Market, Big Heart is a full-length documentary designed to share the compelling story of the people of Sacramento and their battle to get and keep a professional sports franchise over the last 26 years. This story has many heroes, but one common theme – a community with a huge heart. As a small market, Sacramento has faced enormous adversity, first in landing an NBA franchise and then maintaining that franchise through both good and bad economic times. [...]
This film will illustrate Sacramento’s struggle to remain relevant in the high-stakes game of professional sports. The story is told through the eyes of long-term members of media, former and current members of the Sacramento Kings franchise, local politicians and lastly, the common members of the Sacramento community that stood tall in the face of adversity.
They’re looking for funding on Kickstarter to finish the film and hoping for a December release, so go crazy. Definitely a worthy cause, since I’m guessing this will be the best fan-made documentary about a basketball team leaving a small market since “Sonicsgate.” Here’s hoping the ending to this one is different.
