BP Team USA Commercial

Happy 4th of July! In the spirit of the day, I’d like to share a job I worked on for BP’s (Beyond Petroleum) Team USA campaign. Late last year I was called to do work on some storyboards for a film production house out in Brooklyn. When you do this type of job,  you never really know if what you draw will see the light of day. So you can imagine how thrilling it was to see my drawings come to life on TV this past week. The commercials for the BP Team USA campaign have begun airing as the 2012 London Olympics approach. I’ve spent some time today watching the videos and profiles of the athletes, and their compelling stories made me a proud supporter of their goals. I wish them and Team USA all the best this summer.

Here are a few drawings and their corresponding live action shots:

    Isn’t BP a British company?

    Hi Bob,
    Well, yes is the short answer, but after a little research (Wiki) I found this “BP has operations in over 80 countries, … Its largest division is BP America, which is the second-largest producer of oil and gas in the United States.”
    Not sure if sponsoring Team USA makes sense or not, but they do, and I think that’s ok. Thanks for checking out the blog.
