Getting a Camera Inside the Moment That Shook the NBA

Blackballed Interview No Film School Podcast
Former NBA owner Donald Sterling made a series of racist comments: this is how the men who worked for him responded.

Documentary subjects are rarely as camera savvy as these ones. The moment Blackballed covers unfolded on camera in the media. In order to get closer to the actual experience, emotions, honesty, and authenticity experienced by the men who lived this, filmmaker Michael Jacobs employed a unique tool. 

He takes us through the challenges of telling this important story, the team he had around him in doing so, and the technology that made it possible.
