ABOUT RELIGION OF SPORTS
Sports aren’t like religion. Sports are religion.
They provide meaning, purpose, and significance to their participants–from athletes to spectators, coaches to broadcasters, to family, friends and fans. If sports are the faith, these are the faithful–and we are its disciples.
We are a diverse, forward-thinking collective of filmmakers and podcasters, writers and designers, thinkers and makers who believe in the power of storytelling to show why sports matterso deeply to communities around the world. Our stories–from the premium long-form narrative all the way down to the fuzzy fan-made social media posts–carry the same DNA: sports are mythic, with epic battles, god-like heroes & villains, real-life miracles, and unshakeable, agonizing curses.
We believe that the court, the field, the pitch–whatever the competitive arena may be–is a spiritual crucible in which spontaneous human dramas are enacted every single day.
We believe these stories contain multitudes of truth, and can be artfully mined for profound yet tangible wisdom.
We seek to inspire & entertain through vivid, compelling depictions of the spiritual dynamics between sport & human potential.
