“We are very excited to have the cast of Some Assembly Required join our campaign this year. After hearing about the premise of the show, we knew it was a perfect fit – it’s like having our own personal ‘toy specialists’ to help,” says Brent Gaserowski, Nash Clubs Director of Marketing. “We value the work the Salvation Army does in our local communities and want to support what we feel is a wonderful and vital program for the Holiday Season.

Directors Michael Hamilton and Corey Ogilvie launch Kickstarter Campaign for documentary feature on Steve Nash

‘Nash’ The Movie gives unprecedented access to NBA Star

The Promotion People - NASH Documentary

‘Nash’ The Movie is a compelling documentary film profiling 8-time NBA All-Star Steve Nash, one of basketball’s most prolific players. Director Michael Hamilton, Founder of Crunchtime Films in association with Donnelly Films, is the creative force behind this movie. On Monday, September 16th, Hamilton will continue his quest to bring the film to the big screen by launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $110k necessary for the global consumer marketing campaign.

The KICKSTARTER Campaign will run for 30-days ending October 16th

The film delves deep in to the personas of Steve Nash: Athlete, Philanthropist, Family Man, and NBA Legend in the making. During the making of the film, Hamilton was granted unprecedented access to high profile Nash fans, incuding President Barack Obama who states: “I think you’re measured not just by your skill or your fame or your wealth, but by your character, and I think by that standard Steve [Nash] is going to do very well”. Other notable celebrities lending their voice to the film include actors Owen Wilson and Andy Garcia, Doug Ellin, legendary filmmaker Ron Howard and fellow athlete Kobe Bryant.

Hamilton & Ogilvie give fans a 360 degree perspective of the superstar, as Nash himself pushes viewers to examine the perceived limitations and driving forces in their lives. Aside from his fame and fortune, Nash is innately driven to continue his winning ways in all avenues of his life. “This project has given me a front row seat to the never dull but sometimes very private life of Steve” says Hamilton. “His prowess and work ethic on the court speaks for itself, but now fans will get a rare glance in to what drives one of the world’s most influential people off the court”

Michael Hamilton is an accomplished Director and Producer with a 15-year career that includes spearheading 20+ sports documentaries, television series and feature films. Hamilton’s passion lies in discovering compelling stories and bringing them to life. His acclaimed documentary series ‘The Journey’, chronicling the success of some of North America’s high profile athletes on their way to the Major Leagues, garnered a ratings win for TSN and ESPN classic. Credits also incude a one-hour hockey special for the Rogers SportsNet channel titled ‘Boys to the Bigs’, featuring the NHL’s most electrifying hockey players Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, and Eric Staal. Hamilton is also the recipient of a LEO Award Nomination.
