The Team Behind The Team
Y&R and animation production company Duck Studios are behind a series of charming animations for the US Olympic Committee each telling the story of a different athlete using a different style of animation
The Team Behind The Team campaign features US Olympic and Paralympic athletes talking about the support they received when they were starting out. Each begins with a live action interview, then cuts to an animated telling of their story. The first batch of the films came out earlier this year, but a new set have just been released. Enjoy.
