Sports Illustrated's Peter Read Miller on assignment: Mexican Wrestling (video)
Video Clip: A few months ago Sports Illustrated staff photographer Peter Read Miller and picture editor Jimmy Colton were having a discussion when Colton asked Miller if he would be interested in heading to Mexico City for a week to photograph Mexican wrestlers, or lucha libres.

Along with good friend and assistant Max Morse, Peter headed to Mexico's capital with 10 cases of gear and high hopes. They both felt that this was one of the interesting shoots they had been on and decided it would be exciting to try and turn the camera on themselves to document the trip. Armed only with a Canon Powershot SD800 (point-and-shoot) camera and a pack of SD cards, Morse, using Final Cut Pro, came back with enough footage to piece together a 9-minute web documentary tracking the pair on their journey south of the border.
(A 3-part Quicktime movie series.)
