Fight for a Living
Documentary – Fight for a Living – We followed Oisin around Ireland and the Uk as he prepared for the biggest fight of his career against British champion Amir Khan. This documentary was filmed intermittently over a four week period, which gave us the freedom to observe the pro-boxing world from a novices point of view. We decided to tackle this project as a “fly on the wall documentary” as we knew we had the bones of this narrative already on paper.
Setting up the Story, Oisin struggles in Oklahoma before becoming a professional fighter. The turning point, he has a shot at a world title against Amir Khan. Mid-point, the highs, and lows of preparing for this fight. The Climax, he wins or loses the battle. The Ending, how he deals with the outcome of the fight.
