 News-NFL Films Opens
NFL Films, a division of the National Football League, known for its innovative camera techniques and distinctive music, was founded in 1962 by Sabol's father, Ed Sabol, as Blair Motion Pictures.
In addition, NFL Films needed to upgrade its production equipment and capabilities to ensure it was in compliance with Federal Communication Commission mandates regarding the pending transformation to high-definition digital television.
To oversee the project's development, NFL Films turned to The Staubach Co., which was founded and is led by former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach.

 NFL Films Career Highlights   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Elway, the NFL's all-time winningest starting quarterback (148-82-1;.643), was voted to a franchise-record nine Pro Bowl appearances (1986 season, '87, '89, '91, '93, '94, '96, '97 and '98), tied for the most ever by a quarterback (Marino, Moon), and as a starter six times ('87, '89, '93, '96, '97 and '98).
It was the 10th time in his 13-year NFL career that he had topped the 3,000-yard mark, joining him with Dan Marino (11) as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to accomplish that feat 10 or more times.
Elway was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player (AP) and the AFC's starting quarterback in the Pro Bowl after turning in a tremendous season in 1987, a year in which he became the first AFC signal-caller since Terry Bradshaw (1978-79) to lead his team to consecutive conference crowns.

 Football not the only game for NFL Films - Boston.com
For 20 years, NFL Films has ventured into other areas, from filming rock videos to producing educational films about math.
NFL Films was born in 1962, when Philadelphian Ed Sabol, a hobbyist who filmed his son's high school games, offered the league $3,000 for the rights to film the championship game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers.
When NFL Films opened its previous building in 1985, there was not enough football filmmaking to last the whole year -- a situation, of course, that has changed in the last two decades as the sport has become a year-round obsession for its growing legions of fans.

 Masterpiece of NFL theater - The Boston Globe
NFL Films has done as much as any single entity to create the mythology of pro football, helping transform the game from a sport into an art form for some and a religion for others.
With a deft blending of unrivaled cinematography with music, emotion, and revealing interviews, NFL Films has become the mythmaker of pro football, and its latest project may be its greatest work.
The NFL Network originally considered commissioning NFL Films to produce a signature series like ESPN's "SportsCentury," in which it would count down the game's greatest players, but Sabol pointed out that football is not about the individual.

 Orchestral strains have accompanied NFL Films highlights for decades   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
NFL Films' music isn't Beethovenian in scope or artistry -- most must be under four minutes long.
Much of the impact of NFL music stems more from the glories of a full orchestra than from the actual compositions, which after all are quite short.
Film scores contain less orchestral music these days and even the best pop and rock can't compete with the expansive sonic splendor of a full orchestra.

 MISCMEDIA.COM: NFL Films
In schools, at church teen retreats, on the lonely late-afternoon weekend TV slots now occupied by infomercials, NFL Films' half-hour reels of grainy 16mm film were ubiquitous, with their pompous narration and brassy music scores.
A typical segment of a film might cut from overhead shots to field shots to cutaways of anxious fans to wired-for-sound coaches' exhortations to reverse-angle replays to super slo-mo shots made with a mammoth 600-mm telephoto lens to tackle shots pumped up with highly exaggerated sound effects.
Today's NFL Films is a 200-employee outfit in its own office complex behind a New Jersey shopping mall, with its own film labs, editing suites, soundstages, and vaults (Sabol claims the only human event more thoroughly documented on film than NFL football is World War II).
