Los Angeles Husker Ryan Tweedy Producing Documentary "Through These Gates" Exploring What it Means to Be a Husker Fan
Watch his teaser video here
Los Angeles film maker Ryan Tweedy decided to make a documentary about Husker fans after meeting a Husker fan in a quiet Buddest Monestary in the Himalayas. Finding a Husker fan in one of the most remote and isolated places on earth inspired him to explore the phenomenon that Husker fans seemingly existing everywhere on the planet and to tell as many of their stories as possible.
Ryan, who grew up in Lincoln, and his talented production team are currently interviewing Husker fans from everywhere telling their stories of what being a Husker fan means to them. Ryan is passionate about this project and is devoting a huge amount of personal time and money to making this film. He will be in Lincoln prior to and during the Spring game conducting interviews and filming Husker fans in their native environment. He and his crew will be going on the road this fall to document Nebraska fans on the Big Ten trail. And you can be sure he will be at the UCLA game documenting the wave of Husker fans descending on Pasadena.
Make sure you watch his teaser film and especially the comments of a random Northwestern fan who turns out to be the President of Northwestern University. You can support Ryan with your donations and tell him what it means to you to be a Husker fan by visiting Ryan's web site at http://www.huskersfilm.com/.
