From ESPN Playbook's Patrick Dorsey:
Sometime Tuesday -- before the Boston Celtics' potential closeout game against the Atlanta Hawks (8 p.m. ET) -- Ray Allen will hit the court and go through his rigorous shooting routine, one that has helped him to become the NBA's all-time leading 3-point converter.

That routine didn't go unnoticed by Celtics team photographer Brian Babineau. And Babineau wanted to do something about it. Something in film. Something "that was different than what has been seen of it before," he explained via email.

"I didn't want commentary or it to be an instructional video," Babineau continued. "More of an artsy, dark and interesting angle on it."

He pulled that off, with the fascinating, hypnotizing short film "The Routine," a six-minute piece that took two days of shooting and a little post-production.
