“Doin’ It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC” co-directors Bobbito Garcia and Kevin Couliau visited 180 courts throughout NYC’s five boroughs to make their debut documentary. They traveled to a majority of the locations by bicycle, carrying camera equipment and a ball in their backpacks.
Their creative journey began many years before starting the self-funded project though, with a deep desire for playing as well as taking photographs in the world’s Mecca for the outdoor sport.
In this episode, the filmmakers share what led them to document all the innovation that exists in the “City Game,” and the creativity that shines through the New Yorkers who religiously head to the schoolyard to call “Next!”
