When Kansas City, Missouri's new, downtown arena opened, IronMule Creative's president was hired to write and produce this launch video - The Journey. The purpose of the video was to inform Sprint Center audiences of the journey downtown Kansas City has made - from blighted no-man's land to bright beacon of entertainment and culture - all anchored by Sprint Center.
Made almost entirely from "found" 16mm and video footage, and licensed imagery, The Journey features the incomparable talents of home town voice Jim Birdsall. Brian Hicks deftly edited disparate image sources together into a dazzling and coherent whole. Chapman Recording and Mastering provided recording facilities and the final mix, which also features custom music. t2 served as the overall production company and created the motion graphics.
It was a tremendous honor to work on this important piece and, like Sprint Center, the creative process took quite a journey from concept through completion.
The video is sourced from DVD, so it doesn't look as sharp as the Master.
