bae vs baseball / cubs & pups

Our close relationship with the Cubs’ marketing team and players was helpful when the team decided to put more of its focus on its YouTube page with all-new original content for the 2019 regular season. A faux game show and dogs? Sign us up.

Dog day afternoons.
And mornings

Time was tight to complete the production of these two series. Shooting concurrently in Arizona during Spring Training, Banner planned for the transport and construction of the Bae vs. Ballplayer set in a local hotel conference room, while also rigging a car with more GoPros than you can shake a puppy at for Cubs and Pups. Don’t shake puppies, actually. Just hug them!

Custom motion graphics packages and a general sense of whimsy helped make the two shows one of the most-watched on the Cubs’ expansive YouTube rebrand.

Respect the talent

Cubs and Pups was shot with a certified dog trainer on site. You have no idea how many times they had to use the bathroom.
