Bigger Stronger Faster* -- New Doc in limited release

I have a tiny bit of footage in this new documentary from the producers of Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11. It was directed by my friend Chris Bell and is in limited release across the country. More information about the film and theaters/dates here: www.biggerstrongerfastermovie.com. It's getting universally good reviews. Check it out on rottentomatoes.com.

It was shot with two Panasonic HVX200 P2 HD camcorders and includes over 800 archival clips, all of which had to be converted to HD. Here's a q and a with the DOP, Alex Buono, that has a bunch of technical information about the making of the movie: http://www.studiodaily.com/main/tech...ting/8280.html

My tiny bit was shot with my Sony HVR-A1U. If the movie is playing near you, I highly encourage you to see it. If you stay until the credits, you'll see me under "Additional Camera."

I saw this a while back when it first came out at the Arclight. Chris and a couple of the producers were there after the screening for a Q&A. It was really good, I recommend it to everyone that enjoys a good doc.

This was a really ambitious independent production. Documentary fans should appreciate it...plus it was one of the best reviewed films of the year so far. It's got a 97% on rottentomatoes.com
