Michael Venables on capturing the drama of sport
The Big Deal podcast episode 25
What does it take to pull together a top sports documentary? Michael Venables tells us, while also revealing the inner cogs of the AFL machine.
Michael is the director and executive producer of the second season of Show Me The Money, now streaming on Stan.
In this episode of The Big Deal podcast, Michael talks about the incredible drama which unfolded on the final day of the AFL trade period as one player’s future hung in the balance, less than a minute before the window closed.
He talks about the larger than life characters among the players and their agents and the phenomenal lengths and cooperation from all parties required to put such a documentary together.
Michael was also director of FEARLESS: The inside story of the AFLW, Amazon's AFL docuseries Making Their Mark and other high profile shows including Lego Masters, Shark Tank, Master Chef and many more.
