At MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER, we’ve had the good fortune of working with the Golden State Warriors for the past three years. It’s been especially cool to be with them over a time of such transformation.
Our first effort was really just a chance to tell the Bay Area that the Warriors were training to win. Our only access to the players was at a two hour training session pre-seaon. But while we were shooting we noticed a ball-return machine. So we asked a young fresh player by the name of Klay Thompson if he would mind sticking around after practice to shoot some threes. We put some dramatic lighting on it and shot “Midnight Shooter” in about a half hour. The Sports Marketing Association named it the best spot in the NBA.
We even got a young Steph Curry running up the parking ramp. Believe us, he’s trained hard for the MVP. Congrats Steph!
The second year, it was all about connecting the most supportive fans in the NBA to the players. We brought fans in for an open casting call and the lucky winners got to join the players in the spots.
Finally, the third year, it was about taking it to the streets. The #dubtruck is still making the rounds, giving fans all over the area a great background for their Instagram shots.
So now, we’ve turned over all our featured work on MTZHF.com to the Warriors for the playoffs.
