NFL Red Zone was having a game day exclusive of the championship playoff game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets.
Saykuus was tasked with creating design frames of marquee players from each team with graphic elements showing player game stats. The frames were used to guide the direction of the final animation.
We used Adobe Photoshop to color correct the photos and Illustrator to create all the player stats. The players and grass background were composited together in Photoshop. Smoke and camera bokeh effects were added to bring players in focus. The Red Zone logo effect was created in Adobe After Effects using the shatter plugin. The split color channel effect was created in After Effects as well.
