Cooley vs. Czaban: The Reality Show That Never Happened
My friend Adam McCaa and his talented video producer Chris Counts launched what was going to be a 10 episode web series, aimed at being a Golf Channel Style reality show. Sort of a Big Break meets the Biggest Loser concept.
The day me and Cooley shot this first pilot episode, it was a frigid late April day. But Cooley was great, and our teacher Pat Maguire was excellent in the short amount of time he worked with us. Sadly, the full funding for the "show" never came through, and so all we had was this short preview/pilot.
I didn't think much about it, until Chris showed me what he had so far, and WHOA, I was blown away! Great videography, editing, and overall production values. Maybe someday we'll resurrect the concept. I know Cooley has.... ahem... more time for golf right now, so we'll see.
