dc.description.abstract This video documentary was meant to examine the idea that basketball is a part of Indiana's culture-in a way that is like no other place on Earth. From almost the time they are born, Hoosiers are drawn to the hardwood, whether they are playing or living each moment with their high school team. With that said, many young Hoosiers may feel an overwhelming sense of pressure from their parents: pressure to compete, pressure to win, or even pressure to do what their father or mother could not. This documentary tries to solve that riddle using two of Indiana basketball's most legendary names: Damon Bailey and Jack Butcher. Dr. Chris Carr, a sports psychologist at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, also adds his perspective on Indiana basketball and the pressured it may create. The documentary is approximately nine minutes long, and uses both edited raw footage and clips borrowed from other video sources. It is heavily produced, using computer generated editing techniques such as dissolves, freeze frames, and slow-motion video. Different camera angles were used to give the documentary a more artsy feel, as opposed to simple, straight-forward journalism.
