2010 Chicago Blackhawks Opener
From Daily Planet, this one is a few months old, but since it features both the defending Stanley Cup Champions as well as my hometown team (Hey, Hey, Hockeytown!), I thought it was a good place to start.
Daily Planet does a lot of work for the Chicago Blackhawks and this one doesn't disappoint. Its fun to see Chicago incorporated into a project and Daily Planet is able to put emphasis on a lot of landmarks as it blends hockey play with the city streets. Plus, some of the work on this project was done by both faculty and students at Columbia College Chicago.
And just for comparison, here's "Hit The Ice", the pre-game jumbotron video that was used last year prior to the Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup. Also made by Daily Planet with a similar premise. Does the 2010-11 opener live up to the excitement of last year's version?
