Steve Sabol and the Art of Storytelling

As you have probably heard, legendary film maker and storyteller Steve Sabol, president of NFL Films, died this past week. The national obsession with professional football and the NFL can, in many ways, be attributed to the early work of NFL Films capturing the unique story lines and personalities of the NFL.

More than the unprecedented access that NFL Films had, the reason it and Steve Sabol have such lasting legacies is the ability to tell a compelling story. Steve was a master at artfully conveying a story and, in essence, making the telling of the story as noteworthy as the story itself. Perhaps no one segment from the expansive NFL Films archive better illustrates that point than “Autumn Wind,” Steve’s tribute to the Oakland Raiders. While non one at PLUS blog admits to being a Raiders fan, we all agree this is story telling at its very finest.

Have a great weekend.
