As long-time Razorback football fans, it was both a privilege and an honor for Doc4 to be able to contribute to this movie that tells the inspiring story of Razorback legend Brandon Burlsworth.
The Challenge. With filming winding down, the director and producer made a last minute decision to completely rework the newspaper montage that would detail the results of Brandon's fateful last season. What was needed was an authentic – and easily readable – duplication of the original newspapers from the time period. And to keep the shoot on schedule, the crew needed these newspapers ASAP!
Our Solution. We reached out to our contacts at the local newspapers to see if they could provide us with the originals. After being told it could take weeks to procure, we mentioned that this was for the Brandon Burlsworth movie – Razorback Nation being what it is, the folks at the newspapers dropped everything to get us what we needed in less than 48 hours.
From there, we worked through the night emailing proof after proof to the filmmakers until every last detail was spot on, finishing just in time to make it into the film.
While we were ecstatic to see our work on the big screen for the first time, we were even more excited to be a small part of such a wonderful project.
