Doco featuring the Mohawk

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Years ago in my final year of Uni doing Film and TV I did a documentary on football fans as my graduate project. I've been meaning to put it online for ages and finally did it. It features our very own Mohawk (who was a top bloke to meet and have in the film) as well as different types of fans from Carlton, Collingwood, West Coast, and St Kilda.

I'm very proud of it, and despite the fact it's a bit out of date with things (as it was filmed in 2008) the crux of the story about footy fans still gets across.

Anyway, thought some people on here might be interested to see it. It runs for 12min and in my opinion Angelo (aka Mohawk) has the best line, I'll give you a hint; he talks about our old friend McLaren.

Enjoy!

Nice one mate, that was excellent. The Collingwood guy was hilarious, and obviously a little special, but he had me in stitches. Except when they were burning the swans scarf, as that isn't on. Unfortunately he did get that premiership.

Collingwood supporters are a bunch of scums! what do they think this is the soccer by burning scarfs and [censored]!? and that Collingwood guy has way too much time his hands, needs to experience life a bit and most defiantly get a female friend.....

Btw good footage too! I remember angelo been a member of demonology member, does he still post there??

Thanks everyone, as far as I know Angelo doesn't post on 'ology anymore. It was funny that night of the scarf burning it just sort of happened that I ended up in the middle of them, always thought that if I wanted to become a war cameraman I'd only need to show that footage to a network!

Great effort Pates! You managed to put together a great of cross section of supporters there and beautifully edited. Nice to see it was a Swinnie product...I was a graphic art student there in the early 70's.

Great stuff Pates. Goddam that fool in b&w is annoying, but they all are. Hope Angelo is back in full colour with plenty to cheer about in 2013.

Thanks Pates. Enjoyed watching that. Your choice of Collingwood talent was spot on, but then again so many to choose from.
What's funny is that when we started out looking for the subjects we wanted to find people that weren't necessarily the stereotypical fans from those clubs. But the more we got into the Pies inner sanctum the more it seemed apparent that we were going to end up with someone like Phil!

I will say this though, of all the clubs I dealt with the Pies were the most eager to help out and give me practically anything I needed. Even gave me tickets to ANZAC day! Not surprisingly Carlton were the most difficult.

Superb film Pates. You should get that out to film festivals.

It has a life out there. Footy fans don't change.

Pates you did a fantastic job mate you should be proud of your efforts mate. One reason I loved it was we don't see enough of this stuff out there. I'm sure there are many ESPN 30 for 30 fans in here who would agree there are so many stories that should be told involving our great game. In depth stories covering war time footy, VFL to AFL, Indeginous players, Fitzroy, Big Jim and other Irish players and so on. The history of the game can be lost so easily. How many kids know about these stories these days?

Yeah I sent it out around a few of the festivals, won an award and got into St Kilda film festival. Short films have about a 3 year cycle on the festival circuit as most festivals stipulate they have to be made about 2 years within of screening.

Got another film doing the rounds at the moment, a short fiction film, which I'm hoping will do well and inspire me and my mate to do another doco.

good stuff. I edited a number of short films in the 90's & early '00's Really enjoyed it all but so many hours!!

The above film would be brilliant with a fully blown sound mix. Enhance those crowd roars.

Your intro is superb...

Fantastic film - well done. It was interesting to see the extent to which hard core footy fans go to support their team; despite the hairstyle that I love, Angelo was the most "balanced". I'm definitely going to summon the courage to say g'day if I get a chance.

Well done.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
