The timeline was tight: 12 hours from shoot to final media for the global launch at the US Open. By moderating the 60-minute conversation, we kept our legends on track about their triumphs, challenges, the collaboration process and the future; turned around photo selects on-site; released a teaser edit within a couple of hours; and had a the final full 3-camera interview edit ready for release for the final launch.
After spotting the grand piano during our pre-production location scout walk-through, we confirmed that Roger had taken piano lessons as a child. So when Michael arrived, we put the two global superstars together on one piano stool. And this happened. The interview and the teaser are the two most viewed videos on Nike’s youtube.com/NikeTennis channel.
