Working with the fine folks over at Versus I was able to create this animation celebrating the 20th Season of the Yes Network broadcasting the Brooklyn Nets. This project was announced as an NY Emmy Winner for the Best Promotional Campaign for 2021 for the 65th New York Emmy Awards.
I had free reign and a blank canvas to create on, only brief being that there be an epic component to celebrate the landmark 20th seasons. I decided to use scale and imagine a giant court-side cast of the "20th Season" being quickly molded and then gone in a flash, capturing the speed a season flies by. I brought the same large-scale cast modeling technique to the giant jumbotron in the center of the court at Barclays Stadium and had a lot of fun studying the mechanics and shapes that make up the jumbotron to bring in as a transitional element throughout the spot. I used the same feel of these elements and brought them into the titles as we rapid-fire through players and announcers setting the stage for the talent this season.
The team over at Barclays and Yes Network liked the opening "20th Season" logo so much they asked for a separate, longer duration render of the intro to play on the actual jumbotron as the Nets entered the Court. It was an honor to have been a part of all of it.
A few animations from the spot showing the hero moments of the opening intro as well as Secondary elements like the jumbotron and title cards for players and announcers.
