Fenway Sports Group asked me to help develop Wally the Green Monster into an animated promo and later into a 30-minute animated special. I facilitated a collaboration between the Red Sox and Soup2Nuts, Hero4Hire and Take the Cake Productions. The 30-minute special “Wally’s Opening Day” airs annually on NESN and won a 2017 Emmy award.
Fenway Sports Group also hired me to create a mascot for the Liverpool Football Club with the goal of making the club more family friendly. After an initial design exploration we developed a CGI model of the character before creating the costume. Now Mighty Red now has a bible, brand guidlines, a website, social media presence and travels with the team domestically and internationally, engaging fans and kids in the community.
Original series for kids ages 7-12 that promotes creativity is in development
