Directing Team

Adam Goldberg and Dan Marks joined together to form South District after years of freelance producing, directing, and editing some of the most renowned sports documentary series and films.  Between the two of them, they have amassed 7 Emmy Awards, a Clio, and a prestigious Peabody Award for their work on ESPN’s 30 for 30 (Sole Man, Pony Excess, Straight Outta LA, The Day The Series Stopped) as well as HBO’s 24/7 series.  They have applied this same documentary aesthetic to their commercial work, which has separated them as two of the more exciting storytellers in the documentary and ad world today.

In only three years, South District has grown into one of the premier sports documentary and commercial filmmaking teams around.  To them, storytelling is the same whether it’s a feature-length documentary or a 30-second commercial spot.  The viewer has to feel something, and that’s what South District does best.
