Born on Halloween, 1935, Dale Brown’s fight for justice began the day his father walked out: two days before he was born.  With a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, John Wooden, Shaquille O’Neal, Tim Brando, Dick Vitale, Dick Gregory and Don Yaeger, Man in the Glass: The Dale Brown Story is a fast-paced documentary film about how an overachiever from tiny Minot, North Dakota relentlessly fought, scratched and clawed his way to the top.

Hired by Louisiana State University in 1972 as head men’s basketball coach, Dale and his on-the-court success would quickly become overshadowed by his efforts off the court. His desegregation of the basketball program would ultimately lead to the complete integration of the school; his battles with the NCAA, which began in 1981, continue today and his weekly letters to a self-conscious struggling teenager helped to create the superstar the world has come to know simply as Shaq. Man in the Glass: The Dale Brown Story is the inspiring story of a truly unique man on a lifelong quest to answer the question:  How much can one man really do? 

When we first set out to make our film on the life of Dale Brown, we were determined to put together the very best team possible. Copperwing was the first company mentioned in our early discussions. Combining their storytelling, color grading and graphics abilities they are the perfect one-stop shop for us.

Working with them on the project has exceeded our expectations, not only because of the services they advertise but the intangible qualities that you need to overcome the myriad of obstacles inherent in a project of this scope.
