Human beings love a comeback story. This is nothing new. But why? Why do we care so much? Maybe it's that we want to see the athletic magic captured once again. Maybe it's because deep down we all root for the best in our fellow man. But most likely - it's because it reminds us that we all have stumbles. We all make mistakes. No matter the money earned, the accolades achieved, we're human. And we all make those mistakes. But the resolve to turn it around, the determination to climb the mountain again is not something that we all inherently possess. It's through watching those journeys that we become inspired. We're entertained by watching those we once saw reach unparalleled success scratch and claw and fight their way back - and we hope, maybe above all - that some of that might rub off. That we might make our own personal comebacks.
We are incredibly interested in helping tell the story of your comeback. As sports fans and professionals in sports media world, we have worked with the biggest names, for the biggest networks and our work has aired on the biggest stages. But it's the personal stories that make us most proud. The stories that connect. The stories that can inspire. That's why we want to help tell yours.
We'd love an opportunity to meet with you and talk about why we believe that, without question, we are the ones to bring your story to the world - and to inspire that change in all of us.
Below is a sample of our collective work. We've done projects for the biggest networks in the game - but no matter the size or scope of the project, we have one singular goal:
TELL AN AUTHENTIC, AMAZING STORY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF QUALITY.
Your words to George Whitfield are what hooked us, "broken, humbled, but for once in my life thankful" - that's what sold us. If you're ALL IN - we're ALL IN!
We want to gain your trust, we want to bring our expertise and we want to tell your story. Check out the clips below that show a variety projects we've done. Would be awesome to meet with you and prove we're the right guys to tell this story!

This is a piece we recently created for the biggest rivalry in all of sports - El Clasico. El Clasico came to the US this summer and DLP was proud to play a part in the announcement of this monumental sporting event. This piece shows the type of high-end work we try to bring to every project.
Perhaps no other show in the sports television genre has brought you deeper access to the world's biggest athletes than HBO's 24/7. In producing this show, it's all about trust. Our team has produced this show in the field and in the edit bay crafting these poetic stories. We pride ourselves on capturing uncompromising beauty and access in a collaborative effort with the subject - and one that never distracts from the training and lives of our subject.
This project we recently produced was done in conjunction with Chris Bosh during the most turbulent and personal time in his professional career. Faced with a potentially life-threatening illness, we helped provide Chris a personal platform to - for the first time - share his story. Throughout this process we dealt with incredibly sensitive material that had potentially catastrophic consequences if not handled correctly. Chris trusted us to tell his story - a trust that could only be earned.
The 30 for 30 series quickly has become the most prestigious platform for sports documentary storytelling. Our team has been involved with several of these films. Below are clips from two of our films, "Pony Excess" - a must watch for every Texas-born male :) - and "Sole Man" a film that dealt with a controversial subject in Sonny Vaccaro.
Created to run alongside a national campaign, Are You From Here? provided an organic, personal look at Under Armour’s growing roster of athletes. These short videos explored the environments that forged the world’s superstar athletes. We hope this shows the tone and quality level we can achieve - even in traditionally documentary-style settings.
Below are clips from a college football series we produced for ESPN. Again, this is to show both quality and our ability to gain the trust inside the guarded world of college football. We all know that coaches have little patience during camp or the season and the last thing they want is a camera in their face. We spent over a month at each school and were able to clearly gain the trust of the coaches, staffs and players. We speak their language, we know the game. We know how to cover it properly - all of those things allow us to capture the intimate moments while maintaining our respect level.
Thank you for taking a look - we're confident we're the right team to help tell your story!!
