I was the DP on this project over three months for the NBA on TNT. These shots became the backbone of the new graphics look for the network. We shot in 25 NBA cities.
Who knew we would end up with such a great compiled movie in retrospect?
Special thanks to Director Drew Watkins and Co-DP Evan McIntosh. Drew brought the creative and Evan brought the tech to make it all work. Producers Chad Watkins and Dirk Detweiller pulled off miracles on a daily basis in every city we filmed.
