We caught up with the writers, directors and producers behind some of the most memorable sports documentaries, series and films about how they approach their craft and what they are working on next.
Michael D. Ratner, whose previous works include ESPN "30 for 30 Shorts" film "Gonzo @ The Derby" and Netflix' "One in a Billion," jumped at an opportunity to merge multiple passions of his into what was then a white space in the industry — a hybrid of comedy and sports content.
With the success of the digital series “Cold As Balls” with Kevin Hart, the director/producer at OBB Pictures sees a potential shift in the way content creation is viewed.
“That the new TV show win could be in the form of a wacky, fun, interview-style show that ranges 10-15 minutes and is released online shows that technology and new media is totally changing the game,” Ratner said.
Ratner has a documentary in the works on a collegiate team that he cannot yet reveal.
