ESPN Fantasy Football 2.0 by Scholar


Winner of The Motion Awards 2022 for best sports promo.



What do you get when you want to push even further past the weird with all new equations, all-new styles, and all completely animated? You get ESPN Fantasy Football Round 2. When ESPN approached us to help them create a new round of spots for Fantasy Football, we couldn’t help but high five and let loose to create crazy new worlds for every shot.

Utilizing our collective strengths, we brought together the minds of all our artists to conjure up situations inspired by every word in the equations. This time around, we went full animation, filled with 3D, 2D mixed media, and integrated type. With a sprinkle of a weight-lifting hot dog, a confused cowboy, and a very cool pineapple, you get the perfect concoction of what Fantasy Football is all about.
