Where's the When NBA Fans Attack DVD?

"Brilliant! Best PowerPoint of The Year!" -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

The Indianapolis Star has a play-by-play account of the investigation into the Pacers-fans brawl during the Detroit Pistons game Nov. 19. To announce charges against both fans and players, the prosecutor's office in Pontiac, MI created an elaborate PowerPoint presentation full of witness quotes, video clips, and a breakdown of the incident.

My staff worked countless hours, and many nights past midnight," Oakland County Prosecutor David Gorcyca said. "I don't know how much it cost, other than it being a helluva lot."
Dude, you put all that on the DVD, along with the game footage of the shot itself, and even 0.001% of the Sportscenter commentary, and you'll recoup your production costs in NO TIME.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
