The League – Seasons 6 & 7

If fantasy football is hybrid of the little guys wanting to be like the big guys, then why not have a package that itself is a hybrid of big and small.

For season six of the FXX series The League, we created an episodic package made up of several micro-vignettes. Tiny hairstyles, tiny toilets, tiny nudity, and tiny trophies are all there. It has everything except overwhelming scale.

The package was captured entirely as live action. All optical effects captured in camera.

Below is a montage of the episodic package and promos we created for the seventh and final season of the The League on FXX.

It may be the final season in the trophy room, but the gang of The League isn’t going to go out quietly. Handcrafted busts get theirs when hundreds of gallons of Rafi-Ade explodes across the scene. A celebratory tsunami of orange drink sees the distinguished arrangement sink as FXX closes the book, and the EBDB, on the long fantasy run of The League.

The League Season 5

We’ve been sitting on a stash of trophies.

For season 5 of the FX series The League, we created an episodic package for the semi-improvised comedy about 6 friends going to absurd lengths to be crowned the winner of their fantasy football league, and thus win the coveted “Shiva” trophy.

Season 5 also saw the series move from FX to FXX. In keeping with the new network’s tone, we used a pointed color treatment, loose analog lens effects, and varied sequential capture methods to complete the package. It’s all about the win, so we built a ton of custom trophies to share the stage with the ever present Shiva. Trophies and other oddities from a non-sequitur sort of man-cave all mix and mingle in the package.

We also crafted the package for Season 6 which we’ll share more about soon.
