Discover Boating film director wins an Oscar

Wally Pfister, director of Discover Boating's 2007 short film, "Good Run," won the Academy Award for Cinematography on Sunday for his work on "Inception."

"Good Run" is a four-minute film highlighting the life of a boater as he reflects on fond memories aboard a boat. Pfister has filmed more than 25 movies, including "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight," "Memento" and "The Prestige."

He was nominated for an Academy Award in Cinematography three times before winning the Oscar this year. Pfister was an Independent Spirit Award nominee in 2000 for "Memento."

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is making "Good Run" available to anyone in the industry to download and use on their website at no charge.
