chance Chip trades Bradford and drafts a young QB to groom under Sanchez for a year?

If Sam Bradford stays healthy, he is going to have plenty of young athletic options to help him out.

If the independent film circuit is any indication, the future is looking for Black filmmakers and entertainers. In the past 3 years at Sundance we have seen films made by or featuring breakout stars win many awards. Just this year Fruitvale by first time filmmaker Ryan Coogler won both the Grand Jury and Audience award at Sundance. 2012's film "Beast of the Southern Wild" propelled Quvenzhane Wallis to fame. In 2011, Dee Ree's film "Pariah" caught the attention of Hollywood, launched Adepero Oduye's acting career, and cinematographer Bradford Young received the excellence in cinematography award (Howard U MFA alum!) Thanks to all those who paved the way for us today!

Congratulations to cinematographer Bradford Young on his 2013 Sundance win for Best Cinematography for AIN'T Them Bodies Saints; Color grade by Harbor's Joe Gawler. Sebastian Doggart of The Guardian wrote, "Bradford Young's stunning cinematography is like a moving canvas, with exteriors drenched in downbeat dark greens and golds. Interiors are shot in melancholy high-contrast. Young's ethereal lensing of Rooney mara, who plays Ruth, transforms her into a gliding oil painting of the Virgin Mary." It was a real pleasure being involved with this stunning film. See the full list of winners here:

The independent film PARIAH, written and directed by Dee Rees, wowed audiences at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival for its brave performances and vibrant visual design. The coming-of-age film follows Alike (Adepero Oduye), a Brooklyn teenager who is hiding a deep secret from her family. Judges honored the film with a Best Cinematography award for director of photography Bradford Young (Restless City, MISSISSIPPI DAMNED). Despite a meager budget, the gripping story translated well enough on screen for Focus Features to acquire the film, making PARIAH yet another Sundance success story. Shot over five years ago on an ARRICAM supplied by ARRI CSC with one day on an ARRIFLEX 235, PARIAHs alluring look was crafted on 35 mm, a practical choice considering the real locations that were used. We didnt want a lot of lights in the space because we wanted to be very, very intimate with these characters, says Young. Five years ago, there were not cameras that we felt would give us the textural qualities we wanted and a ...
Talking about films, wasn't John Akomfrah working on a Fela Kuti bio-pic, like, seven years ago? Am curious what happened to it--next time we'll hear that Keith Richards is co-producing it and the Diablo Koddy is writing it...which, on hindsight, might be a smasher isn't it? But I would love my Fela Bio pic to be directed either by Akomfrah, or one of these three: 1. Andrew Dosunmu 2. The painter Chris Offili or Bradford Young and co-written by Ntone Edjabe and the hiphop scribe Kriss Ex, or just give the script duty to Knox Robinson. Whatcha fink? Seun Kuti to play Fela hands down!
