Well, in terms of names and numbers, we already know the success story it turned out to be, but will have to wait a little bit more until we can...

IMHO, the photo used to illustrate the news is inappropriate for anyone who has watched and read Pieter Hugo's work about the Streets of Lagos, etc.
It may look cool for a kid on streets of London, but on UKC.
I hope my doubt is shared by most of us.
Not appropriate for either UKC or Mr.Pohl...
As well, I think it shows a rather quite shallow level of sophistication and lack of cultural knowledge. Signed off with a nice copymark touch...
In terms of the video-teaser I actually found it quite boring. It looks like a typical "Pro-meets-hard-boulder-...-fails-at-first-then-sends"... With a wealth of movies based on this theme being distributed for (almost) free, I find it hard to possibly have to pay to see it. That is of course, if not the film-making crew in the hood has some bling up their sleeve...
You can still see the thumbnail of the original picture on this thread, (although not in the news item) and I immediately thought what a strange photo for a bouldering movie. Anyway, even though the photo has now gone, thank you for highlighting Pieter Hugo's work - I hadn't seen it before but his photographs are disturbing and striking! http://www.pieterhugo.com/
Kind of agree with the other chap, that in comparison to other types of climbing movie, bouldering is just easier to film hence the very many bouldering movies. They all blend into each other for those without a specific knowledge of the areas. I want to see an ice climbing or scottish winter film shot this well! I'd pay for that! :-)
