When all is said in done, this will probably be an excellent documentary. Every film BJJ Hacks has produced so far has been super cool.

When did we donate money for this? 2009? 2011? Been so long I forget when. Glad to see it's finally being finished.

My own feature length documentary, "Red Tape: The Making of Red Belts"

Should be done in January 2019 or so (hopefully!)

If you guys could support my gofundme, it would really help me speed things up.

Thanks!

My teacher Relson Gracie got a red belt in the time it took to make Red Belt! lol (and I got a black belt from him in that time :) )

But I guess better late than never?

Call me a cynic but this doesn't really do anything for me. No release date, no project update, nothing. While the clips themselves are interesting, there's nothing here production-wise that should've taken 3 years to compile a simple teaser trailer.

The trailer is a bit underwhelming all things considered. Seems like a project that to be good, one must invest themselves completely and 100% without distraction because of the need to travel and track everyone down. Renato Paquet literally passed away in the time it has taken to make this, and I have to assume he was one of the more acessible red belts, not to mention he was still on the mats training in his old age (he was almost 80). I am much more excited about Drysdale's Closed Guard project.

Just an idea here, but maybe some people with a few more resources could take over the project...?

With all due respect to Hywel's great work, perhaps someone like director Relek Gracie (The Foundation, Ginagi) could edit out the fluff, refocus the film, rename it & release it?

Seems like it might be a good way to go at this point. Again, just a possible suggestion.

--But who knows? Maybe in a month or so we could all be watching, HELIO: Red Belt Grandmaster of Jiu Jitsu.

You can donate to my "Help Shen Get  a Bass Boat" gofundme which is still active. (Still trying to rase funds so I can get out there in the waters and help rescue the prople of Houston)

Just had some personal issues, so I haven't been 100% focused on that lately, but I am good now and  just about to go down there & save lives.

So you can donate to either project through that same gofundme

--Thanks!!!
