The director of the nationally acclaimed documentary talks about his latest project, NFL kickers, with SPNW Noel Zanchelli
Jason Reid has turned his filmmaking passion from pro basketball to pro football.
The latest project for the director of the award-winning “Sonicsgate” documentary, on the departure of the Sonics, is a film on NFL kickers, the overlooked players who are more responsible than most for game outcomes.
A graduate of Bishop Blanchet and the University of Washington, Reid took his anger over the Sonics’ departure and turned it into a locally and nationally acclaimed documentary.
Before “Sonicsgate,” Reid and three friends in the summer of 2008 rode their bicycles from Shanghai to Beijing and made “Man Zou,” about their bike-borne engagement with Chinese culture.
Sportspress Northwest video director Noel Zanchelli sat down with Reid in the green room at a recent fund raiser for the project. They discussed Sonicsgate, Reid’s new project and why he rode his bicycle across China.
