New York Film Academy Filmmaking alumnus Cody Broadway is set to direct a new documentary that will follow the Texas School for the Deaf football team. The film will showcase a team that faces a life challenge but overcomes it each week while competing against several high schools throughout Texas. Even though the whole team and coaching staff may be deaf, they still have a winning tradition that dates years back.
Joining Broadway on the documentary will be Director of Photography Michael Lukasjewskyj, a 7-time Emmy award winner. Production for the film will begin in April and will continue through the fall of 2016, with a release date in 2017.
“This will be a new experience for me, but who would I be if I wasn’t challenging myself to learn more about life,” says Broadway. “The goal is to tell a touching story that will speak and inspire people.”
Broadway is currently directing an award-winning web series I Have A Voice, and has already directed the award-winning film She Rides Bulls, as well as the award-winning documentary A Cup of Coffee.
In addition to his filmmaking, Broadway was brought on as host and producer of a show called FOX Live after FOX reviewed a NYFA work of his. Within a month, Cody became Promotions and Production Manager, a position where he oversaw the production and promotions for FOX in both Texas markets. He currently works in San Antonio for KENS 5 TV where he has been nominated for 3 total Emmys (as Editor/Director/Single Spot).
