For the 2008 playoffs, the NBA asked us to develop a campaign flexible enough to promote every single game. The problem was, we had no idea what the eventual match-ups would be. Our solution was to go out and shoot three players from each team in playoff contention. Eighteen teams and fifty-four players later, we had a vast library of both film and stills that could be used to feature players from any potential series. In television spots, print, digital and outdoor, we were then able to pair each new set of opponents as the playoffs progressed. And when the Celtics and Lakers reached the finals, we were also able to film Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, helping to build drama around the most historic rivalry in the game.
