The Portland Trailblazers once again tapped Media Grabbers to create their broadcast and arena openers for the 2016 and 2017 season. The players were filmed on location in Portland at the Moda Center. Back in Salt Lake City each clip of the players was keyed off the green screen and then composited with illustrated elements to give it an urban 2D animated look that brings your attention to the all important dunks! (it’s in the name man). It needed to have both authentic grit and organic flow to match the pace of the music and the vibe of Rip City. Being short on time, but big on ideas we got our creative game on. Media Grabbers team point guard Wyatt Germer passed to players Mark Ricks and Bobbi Hobbs to Alley-Oop the edit in a seamless pass of artistry. The result is an action packed opener that brings to life the energy and skill that each player brings to the court, game after game.
