    A Documentary about Fantasy Sports Players.
    Hi Everyone, My name is Joshua Adler, and I am a filmmaker (and college professor at Ramapo College in New Jersey) My producers and I are doing preliminary research for a documentary we’re making about high stakes fantasy football players.

    I honestly don’t know if I’m breaking any rules by posting this on the forums… and if I am, I sincerely apologize. BUT… if it’s allowed, I’d like to ask if anyone is interested in being interviewed about playing fantasy sports. (Right now, we can only do interviews in the New York tri-state area… but soon it’ll be all over the USA)

    Again, I appreciate any time any of you give me. AND… I hope it’s okay to post this on here. of course I’ll give you our credentials so you know we’re a legit film crew… and I’ll answer any questions you might have.

    you can contact me at josh AT lpavideo DOT com (don’t know if I’m allowed to post email address, so I did it that way)

    Thanks again!

    you can’t interview via Skype? there are plenty of guys who’d be willing to help you out but limiting yourself to Tri State limits your exposure to some real heavyweights

  • filmmaker

    Absolutely CAN interview over skype, winsome. Thanks so much for the feedback.

    Just to explain, the way these are usually done is to put together what’s called a SIZZLE REEL to then raise the majority of our financing.

    If we interview over SKYPE, it frankly won’t LOOK as good.

    BUT… that being said, when we eventually make the film, we will be going all over the country to interview and shoot footage.

    So… long story short… YES, we’d be happy to talk to anyone in the US to interview on skype.

    Thanks so much for your feedback!

    Can we get someone to slip in a deposit boners reference?

    I always thought this would be the closest thing to the “moneymaker effect” for DFS. Hopefully, it is the Hoop Dreams of DFS!

    Thanks so much!

    I have a short documentary that is in the works right now, I’m happy to show it to you. But because of the subject… I can’t make it public yet until it’s finished. Should I email the link to

    I assume you’re Cal? Should I address it to you?

    Thanks again. I really appreciate it. Everyone’s been very nice and receptive.
