BrainStormin’ Productions, founded by ESPN anchor, Hannah Storm, recently completed the production of “Moving the Goal,” the story of Kelly Smith, England’s premier women’s soccer star and her previously untold story of her battle with alcoholism. Storm makes her directorial debut with the film, which is part of espnW's "HERoics," a series of six documentaries by filmmakers around the world, as part of ESPN's unprecedented coverage of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011.
Storm serves as director and executive producer of the project. She also hosts the hour-long “HERoics” special, which airs on ESPN and ABC. Storm’s film, "Moving the Goal," offers Kelly Smith's exclusive, first person account of her battles with insecurity, depression and alcoholism, and her fight back to become one of the top players in the world. Said Storm, “Kelly silently suffered before our eyes. In the film, she was remarkably frank and forthcoming with her story, giving us unprecedented access to her family, teammates and coaches, and rehabilitation facilities. She is powerfully inspirational and now is poised to lead England into the Women’s World Cup in Germany.“
The series will air on ESPN2, June 25, 2011, the eve of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011, and the same night it debuts on espnW, the first dedicated content and digital hub designed to serve, inform and inspire female athletes and fans. It will air again on ABC during the World Cup, July 2, 2011.
Storm recently received the 2011 Gracie Award® for Outstanding Producer-News/Non-fiction for her film “Unmatched,” also produced through BrainStormin’ Productions. “Unmatched,” a documentary chronicling the famous rivalry between tennis greats Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova, was part of ESPN’s Peabody award winning “30 for 30” film series.
BrainStormin’ Productions is currently producing original content on the Women’s College World Series for espnW.
