Longshot: The Brian Upson Story

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Tavish Kelpin[/vc_column_text][edgtf_title_with_dots display_separator=”yes” separator_color=”#000000″][vc_column_text]In 1982, the West Vancouver Highlanders were in the provincial championship game against a cross town rival. This was the first appearance for West Van and their head coach, Brian Upson. It would also be his last game. Brian was fighting a losing battle against cancer and was living on borrowed time. What followed was one of the most incredible stories in basketball history. This documentary contains interviews with players, family, and friends of Brian together with original footage of the game and was created by students in Rockridge Secondary’s Advanced Film class.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text]CANADA, 2017

Tavish Kelpin

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text] Tavish Kelpin has always had a passion for film, but never had the chance to pursue his passion until he started taking film and television studies at Rockridge Secondary school in his grade 8 year. Over the following years he made many short films and music videos with his peers in his film classes. Many of his films have been awarded at film festivals over his 5 years at high school. In his grade 12 year, with his peers in his advanced film class, and with great support from his film teacher David Shannon, they created Longshot: the Brian Upson Story. The film was written, directed, shot, and edited by the students. It marked the first, and very successful year of Rockridge’s Advanced film program. The film went on to be nominated for multiple international film festivals. Tavish graduated from Rockridge in 2017 and is now in his first year at the BOSA film school at Capilano University in Vancouver.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][edgtf_separator type=”full-width” color=”#b5b5b5″ border_style=”solid” thickness=”1″][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner content_aligment=”center”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Production Company:
