A Nike still shoot spotlighting several professional football players including Larry Fitzgerald, Ndamukong Suh, and Marshawn Lynch. Video was also shot and used to create an intense “Beast Mode” video featuring Marshawn. Nike’s creative brief specified that we shoot in an NFL field house/training facility, but we had to shoot in Los Angeles, a city without a pro football team and no appropriate field house. Our shoot also needed to be near a film studio where the athletes were participating in other shoots—and there was no time to change locations. No problem! Our set designers simply built a field house in a 17,000 square-foot soundstage. It was a fun and challenging week… and Katana made tater tots in the studio oven!
