Exciting news! I was contacted a few weeks ago by a producer for FSD and a fellow Michigan Alumna. She had a found a post I had made on the Children of Yost Facebook group, and asked if I could round up about 15 hockey fans for a short scene they were shooting at Yost. I contacted as many people as I could, and we trekked down to Yost this past Thursday wearing jerseys, shirts, anything Maize and Blue. I'm actually a bigger hockey fan than a football fan, so to be asked to do this was incredible. They needed people to go through all of the cheers and chants you regularly hear at Yost, so we basically went through all of the staples for about an hour while they filmed us. The gist of it is, after many years, they're finally making a documentary based off of John Bacon's book about Michigan Hockey, "Blue Ice." (If you haven't read it, do so now.) It was also a great time for me, because, being a Film Major, I got to network with some cool people.
Anyway, they've already done about 40 interviews with former players, and have found extremely old game footage via TV networks, and even found some footage from the 50's (!!!) courtesy of the Bentley Library. I don't know if it'll have a theatrical release, but I know it will air on FSD.
Very cool stuff. I'm extremely excited. If I hear of any new developments on the project, I will let you all know.
