‘Hard Corps’ to debut in LA

An award-winning documentary about drum and bugle corps will make its silver screen debut July 14 in West Hollywood. “Hard Corps,” a 27-minute documentary by producer and director David Malver, takes a look at the lifestyle of a drum corps member through personal interviews and video highlights, showing viewers the emotions that fuel a drum corps member.

“Hard Corps” won the Achievement in Documentary award at the 2002 New York University First Run Film Festival, and Malver has also won the 2002 Bronze Remi Award at the Houston Worldfest International Film Festival for his short film “Rich.”

Malver was a member of the Colts from 1996 to 1998 and attended the New York University Tisch School of the Arts.
