Video special effects for the Memphis Grizzlies’ film “Mike Conley: Our Conductor” by Craig Brewer

VFX for online film featuring Justin Timberlake & NBA all-stars

The NBA Memphis Grizzlies just released the new short film by director Craig Brewer, entitled “Mike Conley: Our Conductor”. I’m proud to have been a small part of it, creating video effects on a very tight deadline ahead of its premiere.

From the Memphis newspaper The Commercial Appeal:

The Grizzlies wooed free agent Mike Conley on Monday with a Craig Brewer-directed short film on the team’s website that featured Justin Timberlake — and added a third G-word to the team’s vocabulary.

Grit and grind, make way for grace.

The two-minute, 44-second film brought together basketball and the arts, with Grizzlies players Tony Allen, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol co-starring with ballet dancers and jookers, the Grizz Line drum line and a symphony orchestra.
