Following the critically acclaimed 2014 AFL documentary on the life of an AFL coach, this finals series will see the Seven Network air The Chosen Few 2, an insiders look at the current captains of the AFL.
The documentary produced by Peter Dickson and AFL Media, follows past and present AFL captains over a 10 month period. Featuring current AFL captains such as Matthew Pavlich, Nick Riewoldt, Bob Murphy and Luke Hodge, Dickson’s 90-minute documentary was produced from more than 30 interviews and 100 hours of footage.
The Chosen Few 2 illustrates what it takes to reach the pinnacle of leadership at the elite level of Australia’s Game. With unprecedented behind the scenes access, including never before seen on-field vision and audio, The Chosen Few 2, allows viewers the ability to witness first-hand the human side of the AFL captains.
With generous unguarded honesty, the AFL captains share their very personal stories of life in and out of the spotlight highlighting the sacrifices, the expectations and pressures associated with one of the most coveted roles in the elite game. Dickson described the experience of working closely with the captains for this film was an absolute privilege.
“After telling the story of the AFL Coaches in last year’s documentary, it made me want to explore in film the other most influential leader in a footy club, the captain,”
“For all the captains that took part, past and present in this film, I simply cannot thank them enough for entrusting me to tell their unique story."
The Chosen Few 2 features interviews and behind the scenes access with the following past and present AFL captains including their families: Matthew Pavlich, Nick Riewoldt, Joel Selwood, Travis Boak, Tom Rockliff, Trent Cotchin, Bob Murphy, Taylor Walker, Jobe Watson, Callan Ward, Phil Davis, Marc Murphy, Scott Pendlebury, Luke Hodge, Nathan Jones, Andrew Swallow, Shannon Hurn, Jarrad McVeigh, Kieren Jack, Stephen Kernahan, Wayne Carey, Paul Kelly and Michael Voss.
