Along with a lot of random/sporadic content for broadcast on TV and digital I've also created, developed, and produced a number series for EPSN. Above are a few of those series that fall under the XGames umbrella.
When PurePharma asked us for a video with Crossfit athlete Brooke Ence we knew this was a chance to execute an idea we'd been thinking about for awhile. Our goal was to expanded the very typical "day in the life" concept into a full documentary surrounding Brooke’s quest for the Crossfit Games championshi this year. It was challenging yet extremely interesting to see how much of her bigger story we could tell in just one day. With over 350,000 views on youtube alone I guess you could say our idea worked.

Along with producing more typical content for ESPN I've also produced a number of segments appearing on Sports Center. These segments are usually more news based and inserted into the show as quick bits. Due to the topical nature of the segments it is extremely hard to find examples online but occasionally they turn the segments into longer digital pieces as seen below.

Physical Thread is a collection of health, wellness, and fitness focused segments broadcast on various TV and digital outlets.
The Bone Zone was a short web series created to promote Dungeon Fighter Online and an upcoming DFO event. The concept was to a ridiculous low budget mock Jim Rome: Rome is Burning show focused on video games instead of sports, and I think we pulled it off. While the content all surrounds video games the real fun was going over the top and amplifying every cliche we could think off. I still don’t know if most of the audience got most of the production humor but it’s ridiculousness still entertains me.
Along with video game trailers and game play specific videos we also made a variety of live action series, episodes, and shorts surrounding the games. Above is a sample of the style of live action content we made.
A few samples of video game trailers made for Nexon.

No Days Off follows MMA fighter and super athlete Shanon Slack as he trains for upcoming fights. NDO started as just an exploration but after receiving such positive feedback we made a few more fueling negotiations with several fight organizations. Shannon ended up on the UFC's The Ultimate Fighter show as a coach and soon after began fighting for Bellator.
