“Always look for components of a good story – character, conflicts, intimacy, access.” – Gotham Chopra

Gotham Chopra is a Sports Emmy award-winning director of “Tom vs Time,” Kobe Bryant’s ”Muse,” and the Sports Emmy-nominated documentary series “Shut Up & Dribble” in partnership with NBA All-Star LeBron James, Springhill Entertainment, and Showtime Networks. Currently, Chopra directed “Stephen vs The Game” in partnership with NBA All-Star Stephen Curry and his company, Unanimous, and is the second installment of the Versus series on Facebook.

In addition to his film work, Gotham has directed several commercials, including Nike’s 2016 Olympic campaign, “Road to Rio.” and the new documentary “Margin of Victory,” for Under Armour that stars Steph Curry, Kelley O’Hara, and Anthony Joshua.

Gotham is the creator of the Religion of Sports brand which he founded together with NFL icons Tom Brady and Michael Strahan and is a co-executive producer on the series by the same name. Chopra also launched his podcast series Why Sports Matter, produced by Religion of Sports, airing on the Cadence13 Podcast Network.

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • How we got his start in sports and documentary storytelling through ESPN 30 for 30
  • His favorite sports moment of all time (Hint – he’s a Boston and Brady fan!)
  • The creation of Religion of Sports brand and what’s next
  • Much, much more…
