We’ve partnered with the Pittsburgh Pirates before to create Super Bucco Run, an award-winning in-stadium game that was featured on Deadspin. Now, PMI and the Buccos have teamed up again for video player intros and a broadcast commercial that uses the same video game effect.
Our lead animator, Danny Johnson, is a gamer so this pitch was a no-brainer. As Creative Director and VFX supervisor partnering with our great friend Director Andy Kelemen – we filmed Pittsburgh at its best then composited 3D polygon baseball elements into the scenes.
Danny hit a homerun with this project, celebrating our city as well as our great partnership with the Pirates.
Let’s go Bucs!
