A little late posting this but I recently had the opportunity to work on the 2023 NBA Playoffs campaign for Indiana Jones and the NBA. It was an incredible experience to work with such a talented team on such a high-profile project. I was responsible for some design, animation and compositing of the first two shots in each 30-second spot, as well as several shots in episode 3. The team at Elastic are always inspiring to work with and they keep me pushing the boundaries of what I am capable of. Combining elements from the timeless classics of Indiana Jones with the energy packed NBA, this project had us all pushing towards creating something we would all be proud of.
