YouTube as an inspiration
"The idea came from a YouTube video of Charlie Zelenoff. He's an internet troll who goes from gym to gym to beat up inexperienced boxers. Then we saw a mockumentary of a schlager singer and his coach, which also sparked the idea for a movie.
"After Karel Konings pitched his idea to Philippe Jackmaert, a collaboration was formed. We also contacted some experienced writers for feedback and had meetings with directors to hear their thoughts. Our first script was more comical, but due to those meetings, our revisions became more dramatic and tragic. Sometimes outsiders can have a better view of shaping the story."
"The constraint was to arrange everything as practical as possible, as we were on a limited budget
and a second wave of COVID-19 was looming. We are also currently developing our characters and story into a longer series."
