Inspiring Coaches Program

Documenting the story of a coach who inspires thousands.

Brooks Running honored Coach Tim Severa as the Inspiring Coach of the Year in 2019. Tim is known as the Godfather of the Boise running community, he has worked with youth at every level, organizing races, and helped Boise’s refugee population find stability and belonging. Brooks Running commissioned Micro Grain Films to bring this story to life.

Caleb worked with Paul Lebel and a team from Brooks Running to capture footage from various running events in the Boise area over the course of a week, along with interviews with several individuals from the Boise running community whose lives had been positively impacted by Tim Severa. Paul Lebel edited the final cut of the film, which was used to announce the program's award winner across all Brooks social channels and on the company's website. The film is also featured on the Brooks Booster Club landing page to promote the mission and purpose of the program.
