Movie BULLRIDER Documents The Emotions Behind The Most Extreme Of Extreme Sports—Bullriding
Los Angeles, CA -- June 21, 2007 -- WDC Media News -- The movie “BULLRIDER” by Off The Pier Productions passionately documents the athleticism, camaraderie, courage and heart of the men and the bulls who challenge one another each year in the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Built Ford Tough world championship series as man seeks to conquer 2000 pounds of the most ferocious flesh in the world.
“BULLRIDER” is as much about living life as it is about the rough and tumble world of extreme sports, according to producer Maureen Holmes, president of Off The Pier Productions. “You don’t have to be a cowboy, or a sports enthusiast to be moved and inspired by this film. The movie’s biggest fans are often those who knew nothing about the world of professional bull riding and found themselves so inspired by the riders.”
Released in selected theaters across the country in 2006, “BULLRIDER”, now on DVD, is a reflection of the grit demonstrated by the PBR cowboys. Throughout the movie, the professional riders lend insight on their secrets of success in a fiercely competitive environment. These professional athletes literally face serious injury or even death each time they attempt to ride the storm for eight seconds of a bull’s fury. These very same struggles, defeats and victories are found in everyday life, maybe not as intense, but certainly, as important. The riders show by example how they conquer fear and insecurity.
Champion Bull Rider Mike Lee, young and bold and broken in “BULLRIDER”, draws on every ounce of courage and faith as he struggles against the danger he invites with each ride. Current world champion, Adriano Morales, is pure inspiration. He says it all when he states that the riders rely on something ’greater,’ something ’stronger’ than they are: they rely on God.
The bulls are also part of the story. None of them are hurt in any way in the sport of professional bull riding. The bulls are athletes and they love to buck. Nothing is ever done to make them buck. They are bucking bulls pure and simple and they receive the best of care. In fact they are pampered like pets when they are not performing.
“BULLRIDER” is now available on DVD, which features the original 90 minute film released last year plus another 45 minutes of interviews with world champion cowboys and the stars of the movie, The PBR cowboys. For more information on “BULLRIDER” visit http://www.bullridermovie.com.
