I recently saw a terrific movie at one of our local Indie theaters, called Tangerine by Sean Baker (who has now become one of my favorite directors).

Tangerine is about transgender prostitutes in Los Angeles. Shot in a raw, neo-realistic, “street-doc” style, it’s funny, endearing, soulful, sad and enlightening. And beautifully shot. I loved it!

All very wonderful…but what has Tangerine got to do with kettlebells and the RKC?

Answer: it inspired me to start filming RKC and PCC events that I attended…


Because Tangerine was filmed entirely on an iPhone—and still looked fantastic on the big screen!

So I bought an iPhone 6 and shot with it at the recent San Jose RKC, taught by Dan John, Chris Holder and Chris White. I handed over all the footage to Adrienne Harvey and asked her to compose an initial short video—to give you a taste of the RKC culture in action.

Here it is:

You can see that Adrienne did a fantastic job editing from the mass of footage I dumped on her… 🙂

We hope to use more of the footage in future blogs and articles. But this is a start…
