Filmmakers Steven C Barber and Matthew Hausle along with Executive Producer Tim Shelton and Producer Tamara Henry bring you, The Carrier. This amazing film about the world first basketball game aboard the active nuclear aircraft carrier “USS Carl Vinson” is truly a first. This inaugural event was played on 11/11/11 in front of 10,000 service members and the President of the United Sates, Barack Obama. This 64 minute documentary shows the behind the scenes life of Americas sailors and airmen as the sacrifice 24/7 for the freedoms of everyone in America. Follow the filmmakers as they spend 7 days at sea with these American heroes. There are interviews with the Commanding Officer, Capt. Bruce Lindsey, Magic Johnson, and several of the crew of the Vinson leading up to game time. This film has never before seen footage of this 5 billion dollar war machine and a sequence of the Bin Laden raid, which was carried out from the deck of this amazing vessel. The Carrier is a film of heart and substance that will educate and thoroughly illuminate the viewer, and the story and pacing of this unique film is thoroughly entertaining.
