On Monday, Oct 29 at 7:00 pm in Mass Media and Technology Hall auditorium, please join Western Kentucky University’s School of Journalism and Broadcasting and Canon Explorers of Light to meet with some of the producers of the 2012 documentary Emmy winning A Game of Honor.

Producers/filmmakers Amina Moreau and Joyce Tsang will be leading the presentation by screening the CBS Sports/SHOWTIME production followed by a lively behind the scenes discussion and Q&A on how the film was shot and edited in just one fall season.

A Game of Honor captures a never-before-seen look at the incomparable Division I football programs at The U.S. Military Academy at West Point and The U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. The Cadets and Midshipmen endure a much different athletic experience than any other football program in the nation. The documentary reveals the dedication, discipline and determination required to make the journey from military training, to an elite classroom education, and onto the football field.

Being their first feature length documentary A Game of Honor follows the lives of both the Army and Navy for an entire season. While the story builds and follows a football season, with over a 100 shoot days logged, the characters and narrative are so much more than just football.

The SHOWTIME and CBS Sports collaboration on the epic Army-Navy documentary was nominated for 8 Emmy’s and took home three wins. The feature length film won Outstanding SPORTS DOCUMENTARY; Outstanding SPORTS PROMOTIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT – EPISODIC; and Outstanding NEW APPROACHES SPORTS PROGRAMMING with CBSSports.com. The New Approach Emmy win was for the collaborative effort between SHOWTIME and CBSSports.com on the A Game of Honor multi-part web series.
