    I got a nice phone call this morning. I found out that the documentary I shot in 2017, "Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes"
    that has been showing on HBO for the past 8 months just won (tied) the 2020 Critics Choice Award for Best Sports Documentary.
    We tied for the award with "Athlete A" from Netflix. HBO is getting the film nominated for a Peabody Award my friend, the director told me also. Pretty cool.

    For anyone who thinks you need the best, most state of the art equipment to shoot compelling documentaries, I shot this in 1080 with the C100 MKI and the Atomos Ninja Blade using still lenses, my ancient Nikon Ai set fron the 70s.

    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Congrats but I agree sounds like the artsy critics types dig vintage lenses :p

    That has to feel really good. Good on you and your partners. Hopefully, it is a shot in the arm (oy) in these depressing times.

    Congratulations. I'll have to see if I can watch it. We no longer subscribe to HBO.
