2016 League of Legends World Championships

Riot Games, in conjunction with Passion Pictures (Major Klaxon specifically), approached me to Design, Art Direct, and Color Script a promotional animation for the League of Legends 2016 World Championships. We teamed up with EDM posterboy, ZEDD, to provide the official soundtrack for this year.

I also had the opportunity to bring on some phenomenal talents in Cam FloydRebecca MockGunnar Pettersson, and William Niu, as well Paris-based Studio La Cachete for the heavy animation lifting. It’s incredible to see how everybody’s own stylings matched up in the end.

For the Finals event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the animation was projection-mapped onto a center structure and backed by Zedd and a live orchestra.
