A Fine Balance


97-minute documentary on DVD and Amazon Instant Video


A few years back I decided that I needed a break from writing, so I decided to do something fun-and-easy-and-cheap: make a full-length documentary. The subject of my documentary was the U.S. men's 8-oared crews. This outstanding team had won three consecutive gold medals at the World Rowing Championships. A Fine Balance tells the story of this crew as they prepare for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Specifically, it shows seat racing, erging, partying, more seat racing, selection by legendary coach Mike Teti, and finally competing at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Did the Americans win the gold in Sydney? Watch and find out. Caution: F-bombs are dropped throughout this documentary.
