Last night Idris Elba won a Golden Globe award for best actor in a miniseries for his character John Luther in BBC's Luther.  He was also nominated for the same award for the same role in 2010, but didn't win.  After looking into it the show's availability after the win, we discovered you can get the first series on itunes for $4.99 ($7.99 in HD).  Click here to get it before the price goes back up.

Doug Pray

Doug Pray is a documentary filmmaker.  He has a number of Director, editor, and writer credits.  Pray seems to choose subject matter that looks closely at elements of our culture that aren't so widely known.

Doug Pray has investigated the world of advertising in Art & Copy, djing and turntablism in Scratch, grunge rock in Hype! and long haul truckers in Big Rig just to name a few.  Click on the posters to check out the films and click here to check out Doug Pray on IMDB.

Pray seems to have a comforting, almost disarming effect on the people he interviews.  Whether it's a veteran advertising executive, an innovative hip hop dj, or anyone in between; people seem to want to tell Doug Pray their story.

Doug Pray has also worked on numerous tv ads that follow a similar style as his films.  He won an Emmy award in 2006 for an advocacy campaign for HIV-AIDS awareness.  Have a look at the trailer for Surfwise, and be on the look out for The Aerialist, Pray's newest film which is awaiting release.
