“Although I wasn’t on the ambitious film shoot, in going through the hundreds of hours of footage that were so skillfully captured by Hubert and his production team, I felt an enormous responsibility. I distinctly remember the first time that I saw the footage of Peter practicing without a basketball on the balcony. I was so inspired. It must have been two or three in the morning, but I immediately emailed a QuickTime file to Hubert and cinematographer Chris Romeike. “This clip right here is why I love working with you boys.” It is such a truly breathtaking, magical moment.”
