Super Bowl LV - Tease & Sponsored Bumpers

Super Bowl LV - Tease & Sponsored Bumpers

I was part of the technical team that earned an Emmy award for Super Bowl LV, when Tom Brady won for the home team Tampa Bay Buccaneers against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021.

The broadcast for that Super Bowl faced huge challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic. Most of the crew worked remotely – a first for this hugely important event!

The collection of short samples presented here represent the two types of work I have done for eight Super Bowls since 2001. 

Sometimes that work is very creative, editing dozens of short and fun bumps, teases, roll-ins and features that enhance the broadcast of the game and preview shows. An example is the opening of this collection comparing the opposing quarterbacks.  I worked on it with CBS associate director Brian Jagoda, voiced by Jim Nantz.

Sometimes the editing is purely technical. That could mean anything from quality control and organizational workflow for the control room and studio, compiling and delivering advertiser billboards or – as shown in the second part of this collection – building dozens of sponsored animations and bumpers for the preview show. 

For Super Bowl LV, I cranked out more than a hundred of these elements, which aired in over five hours of preview show.  Many of these animations look and sound exactly alike, except for a change in sponsor. Speed and efficiency are important, but meticulous organization and QC are paramount.  No mistakes allowed!
