In space, no one can hear you dunk.
Using photos pulled from NBA.com, I built this experimental video featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo as the main subject. The goal was to portray Giannis as an out-of-this-world athlete, blending some of my favorite elements of epic movie trailers, sci-fi, and hints of 80’s cyberpunk. With my own twists. All of the type (including the title) begins with either the letter ‘G’ or ‘A’, in reference to Giannis’ initials.
The title, Galactic Avenger, is also a not-so-subtle reference to Marvel’s Avengers films, and if you listen closely at the end, you might even hear an all-too-familiar finger snap…
The final splash features a custom logo I created for this video. The logo hides a double-meaning. Depending on your perspective, you may see a GA (Giannis’ initials) or a number 34 first.
