To celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of Hockey’s most legendary moments, Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup-winning goal, Charlie Johnston cut an artistic spot that layers archival footage with some of the most intense and iconic moments from the game’s history. It’s a high-speed collage that plays up the fabled hockey dynasty Orr led on the ice, promoting the Boston Bruins as a can’t-miss team to watch.
“Working on the Bruins with Travis (Robertson, ECD/Art) and Greg (Almeida, ECD/Copy) of Colossus is always a blast,” Charlie said. “This spot commemorates the 50 year anniversary of Bobby Orr’s historic dive so it was important to build a worthy celebration. Our flame artist, Tim Ferrall of Black Hole, did a terrific job melding the archival media and modern footage. He’s a Bruins fan so we had an easy shorthand referring to players’ names instead of time codes.”
