Hard Knocks Miami (Open)

The iconic HBO series comes to South Beach.

Tasked with creating an open for HBO Hard Knocks: Miami Dolphins, it wasn’t hard to find inspiration amongst all the vibrant colors and beach vibes that is south beach. This open follows a progression of the team training from morning to night and back to morning as the natural energy of Miami evolves around them. Between shooting cheerleaders on the beach, world-class athletes, and a helicopter rig this definitely didn’t feel like work.
