"A Perspective of Athletics: GVSU Football" is a documentary-styled film following the people within the 2021 GVSU Football team. Numerous members of the team answered various questions relating to football experiences, perceptions of different aspects of the game, and personal values and passions. A total of thirty individuals, including players, coaches, and support staff, participated. This project intends to present a close perspective of the people involved in collegiate athletics to demonstrate the diversity, culture, motivations, viewpoints, adversity, and characteristics that make the sport so distinctive. Rarely do members of the community and general public know a football team beyond win-loss records, highlight reels, or names and numbers on a roster, and this project aims to bridge that gap.
