“The Finish Line” Named an Honoree at 19th Annual Webby Awards

In January 2014, 2R Productions and Lucid Visual Media partnered with Sports On Earth to produce a series of short documentary films released online.

“The Finish Line” premiered in April 2014 and was named a Webby Awards Honoree in April 2015. The film examines the inspiring journey of Bill Iffrig, the 78-year-old runner whose image became iconic when he fell 20 feet from the finish line at the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.

After winning Best Sports Film for our documentary “Sonicsgate” in 2010 and having “Mr. Irrelevant” named an Honoree in 2014, we’re thrilled to have our work recognized again this year by the Webby Awards, the Internet’s highest honor.

Watch all three short docs we’ve produced for Sports On Earth below:
