My name is Dexter Henry and I am New York City based video journalist and content creator. I started a sports web series called ‘The Sports Walk’ on July 1st through my production company Backpack Broadcasting and thus far have produced 11 episodes. There are 2 episodes left in the first season. I am the executive producer of the series but I also have worked behind the main camera used in each episode, I also have edited and selected the music for each episode. Each episode was shot using Canon 70d cameras.
‘The Sports Walk’ is a show where viewers get to take a walk with sports fans and hear their opinions on social issues that connect with the world of sports. Some of the issues that have been covered this season include racism, sexism, mental health and sexuality in sports. Each episode is about 4-7 minutes long for a quick easy viewing experience. Our most recent episode featured Brooklyn Nets point guard Isaiah Whitehead.
I encourage you to check out the series and I would appreciate any feedback. At this point I am definitely looking for creative ways to promote and grow the series. So once again I appreciate any feedback from the amazing Stareable community!
Below I have embedded episode 5 of the series which focuses on Christopher Sewell a gay black man and marathon runner who talks about sexuality in sports.
