About Fighting on Ice 
 

Fighting on Ice is a sports documentary featuring the journey of not a team or an association but a group of people who represent the Ice hockey team of India and are passionate about playing the sport without any support from the government to accomplish their dreams and make ice hockey their life. Very few people know that India has an ice hockey team and they are playing tournaments with passable equipment and low to no funding. And they do this because they believe in the sport and someday they will be supported and be treated like real sportsman. It's time people of India and the world gets to know about this team's efforts to put India's name in the game.

The issues I will be raising are how we need to focus on other sports where there is so much talent and how the government should think of funding other sports as well and taking care of the sports personalities. Besides all this, I will want to create an awareness of how important it is to support the Indian ice hockey team for them to perform better and we should support them in any way we can.

 
 
 
 
What inspired you to make this documentary?
 
An article of the Indian ice hockey captain - Gyalston. His passion for the sport has inspired me to make this documentary and it is time people of India know we have an ice hockey team and we should support them in any way we can. As a filmmaker who wants to make films that make a difference and make the audience think about what they have seen, this subject has got me till here to show you about the journey of the ice hockey players and what we can learn about not giving up, passion, motivation and how to follow your dreams and keep going.
 
Being a graduate from Griffith film school, Australia and then working in the advertising industry has taught me if the story is good and realistic, people will like it and respect it and that is what I plan on doing as well as showing.
 
 
 
 
 
 
What are the Risk and Challenges associated with this project?
 
Funding is the major challenge that I am facing in order to finish this project. Also shooting for 10 days in Leh where the temperature is -20*degrees. And lastly finding the right music for this film and finishing the film in time before the deadlines of major film festivals.
 
 
 
Why crowdfunding?
 
Through this film I am planning to address major issues in the Sports Industry on India. Due to lack of funds I cannot finish the project and that's why I want people to come forward and support me in this initiative so that together we can bring about a revolution in the state of the Indian Ice Hockey Team. 
 
 
How will the funds be used?
 
All the funds raised through this crowdfunding campaign will solely be used for the production of the documentary.
