NABC’s Guardians of the Game Awards Show – Full-scale Virtual Production

Virtual Reality / Motion Graphics

The National Association of Basketball Coaches’ (NABC) annual “Guardians of the Game” Awards Show highlights the most prestigious awards in men’s college basketball. The celebration is usually hosted live in a hotel ballroom, which became impossible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SNEAKY BIG team created a life-like, virtual sports arena to host NABC’s annual award show from scratch. SNEAKY BIG provided the creative, writing, set design, graphics, production and post-production services to create a one-of-a-kind virtual experience for NABC. The players, coaches and honorees were brought into this virtual arena through high-quality video tribute packages, a virtual jumbotron (complete with seamless branded integration) and a custom motion graphics package. While the NABC approached us out of necessity, the virtual solution they received elevated their annual show beyond anything that could be done in person.
