A camera is a device used to capture images either as still Photographs or as sequences of moving images ( Movies or Videos. High school football is one of most popular interscholastic sports at High schools in the United States and the second most popular in Canada. Inspired by his own work, Sabol founded a small film company named Blair Motion Pictures, after his daughter. Sabol won the bidding for the rights to film the 1962 NFL championship game for $3,000, double the bid for the 1961 championship game. The 1963 National Football League Championship Game was played on December 29 1963 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

He received $12,000 in seed money from each of the league's 14 owners, and in return would shoot all NFL games and produce a highlight film for each team.  
Much has been made of the style that NFL Films produces. All follow certain patterns: they are always shot on film, they have one camera dedicated entirely to slow motion shots, they have microphones on the sidelines and near the field to pick up both the sound of the game as well as the talk on the sidelines, and use narrators with deep and powerful baritone voices, such as Harry Kalas, voice of the Philadelphia Phillies, and the famous John Facenda, the late WCAU-TV anchor who some called "The Voice of God. Harold Norbert Kalas (born March 26, 1936) is a Hall of Fame American Sportscaster, best known for his roles as lead Play-by-play The Philadelphia Phillies are a Major League Baseball team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the United States.

NFL Films also dub sound bites of local radio broadcasts over key plays, because radio announcers are typically more enthusiastic about their home team than network television broadcasters. A sound bite is an audiolinguistic and social communications phenomenon whose nature was recognized in the late 20th century helped by people such as Marshall McLuhan. In addition, NFL Films often use multiple camera angles, muscular orchestral scores provided by Sam Spence, Dave Robidoux and Tom Hedden and film of the players and coaches in the locker room after the game. Samuel Lloyd Spence is an American soundtrack composer best known for his work with NFL Films. Many say that through the use of these techniques NFL Films turns football games into forms which almost mimic ballet, opera, and epic battle stories. Ballet is a formalized form of Dance with its origins in the French court further developed in France and Russia as a Concert dance Opera is an art form in which Singers and Musicians perform a Dramatic work (called an opera which combines a text (called a Libretto An epic is a lengthy Narrative poem, ordinarily concerning a serious subject containing details of heroic deeds and events significant to a culture or nation

NFL Films' game highlights were also a staple of HBO's Inside the NFL for its entire run; that show, however, has since been cancelled. Inside the NFL is a weekly sports show that focuses on the National Football League.
NFL Films is famous for producing an annual highlight film for each team every season. If a team had a good year the film often revels in each victory, while breezing through, or skipping altogether, losses during the season. Inversely, if a team suffered through a poor season, the highlights commonly attempt to still show the team in a good light, however difficult that may be. Losses and pitiful play is commonly, and conveniently, edited out, leaving only isolated moments of success, prompting the viewer to not always realize how bad the team might have actually been. Most films conclude by portraying teams optimistically for the upcoming season, whether founded or not.
The Sabols have used NFL Films to showcase their excellent senses of humor, as in the Football Follies series. Football Follies are collections of American football Bloopers performed by National Football League players The Follies used blooper plays, outtakes and silly narration.
Although NFL Films earns more than $50 million in revenue a year and is expanding at a double digit rate, compared to the $18 billion in revenue that the NFL earns from television alone, most consider this to be minor.  The real value of NFL Films is how it packages and sells the game and many credit it as a key reason that the NFL has become the most watched league in the United States.
In addition to covering the National Football League, NFL Films has also ventured into other unrelated documentary films, such as documenting the Munich Olympics incident for one of NBC's Olympics telecasts, and serving as back-up film photography for other major events. The Munich massacre occurred during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, when members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken The National Broadcasting Company ( NBC) is an American Television network headquartered in the GE Building in New York City's It also produced the video for Journey's 1983 hit single "Faithfully".
