ESPN ~ The Greatest Interview Ever

Back Story

ESPN’s Interview Issue cover melded one brilliant news anchor, one masterful quarterback, and one too-close mic in the face, from two different cites. In order to make the photos of Burgundy and Manning match later, here in Denver we took careful measurements to match up all of the lighting, camera heights and distances to the sets in LA. Because the shots were at different times in different cities, some immediate retouching was done on set to ensure that they’d eventually merge together correctly. By the time we started piecing the shots together you could hardly tell they weren’t taken in the same place.
