LOS ANGELES, CA – January 15, 2023 –
Bunker 15 Films joined forces with The Ranch Productions to help market their baseball documentary “Facing Nolan” will have its first public premiere at Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers MLB team. The movie initially premiered at SXSW 2022 in the Doc Competition and was eventually sold/distributed by Utopia and XYZ Films but Bunker 15 have assisted efforts in gaining a much wider audience.
Cole Harper (Partner at Utopia) honored the Bunker 15 team, saying “They helped us reach a variety of critics and film reviewers that traditional PR companies don’t always connect with during outreach. Their seamless approach has allowed us to share indie films across a vast network, which in turn has raised awareness for each film while gaining feedback from diverse perspectives”.
Facing Nolan is Bradley Jackson’’s debut feature documentary – produced by Russell Wayne Groves. The documentary follows the mythical baseball legend that is Nolan Ryan. This is a story told from the perspective of his opponents and teammates who admired him.
Jackson described Facing Nolan as “a love story wrapped in baseball. Nolan Ryan might be the main character of this film, but his wife Ruth and their family are the true engines behind the Ryan Express.”
The film unravels the intricate inner workings of a sporting legend, exploring never-seen-before insights into the game. As a result, critics have lavished praise on the film.
