THE GREAT 8 is a high-energy, inspirational Sports Documentary. The film focuses on, arguably the greatest major league baseball dynasty in history, Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine. The film will be centered around the Big Red Machine’s core eight players, THE GREAT 8!
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that the starting eight of the Big Red Machine is the greatest of all-time. But if somebody else has a better one, I want to sit and watch it. If they're better than the starting eight in 1976, oh my goodness." ~ Sparky Anderson
The Reds' "Great 8" were the best ever, as judged by history, the numbers and the accolades. Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez, Dave Concepcion, George Foster, Ken Griffey and Cesar Geronimo, led by manager Sparky Anderson. Over the course of seven years, the Big Red Machine won consecutive World Series, four National League pennants, and five National League Western Division titles. The glory of this dynasty, maybe the last of its kind.

About Courttney: Courttney Cooper walks the streets of the city, committing the places he visits to memory. Culling observations for cartographic translation in the studio, these “maps” take form on pieces of repurposed paper, from his day job at Kroger, which he glues together creating additional pictorial space as needed. “Bic” pen line drawings of Cincinnati neighborhoods undulate across the constructed surface. Translation of Cincinnati grows organically as both a manifestation of process and of place because Courttney’s practice creates a living document. Each completed map marks specific time by recording changes in Cincinnati’s landscape, transforming the map into an organic being akin to his working process as an extension of himself. Text underpins the urban plan and functions as compositional buttress, supporting the landscape as skeleton and exposing its messages (snips of memory and place) within open white space of the paper.
