Welcome to the launch of the Fencing for the Edge blog!
My name is Holly Buechel and I am the Producer and Editor for Fencing for the Edge. I recently won the Best Experimental Film award at the Big Apple Film Festival with my short, Speed of Fencing. With over 100,000 views, my short film has made me realize that there IS enough interest in fencing to create a longer and more substantial project. You can read more about Speed of Fencing here.
Here I will be posting updates and progress on the feature film, set for production of the 2013-2014 NJSIAA fencing season. This year will be an exciting year of research, following teams, building relationships, and scouting stories for the film.
A short film featuring one high school fencer is currently in production to help raise the profile of the feature film and to assist with fundraising for the production and post-production expenses. Stay tuned for updates and photos of the making of the first feature documentary film about fencing in New Jersey!
