WEST HARTFORD, CT — College football fans who watch tonight’s BCS National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama will also get a look at some of host city Miami’s local culture. Bluefoot Entertainment (www.bluefoot.tv), here, recently partnered with ESPN to help viewers get a feel for the area, including Little Havana, Calle Ocho, Versailles and Joe's Stone Crab.
“Miami is so much more than South Beach,” notes Bluefoot founder, Timothy Horgan, who directed and edited the Miami shoot. “Once you get off the tourist lined beaches, you find an amazingly large and diverse city. It really is a microcosm of America. There are so many little gems that are scattered around the city. With the help of ESPN’s Wright Thompson’s scripts, we were able to bring some of these local favorites to life.”
Bluefoot collaborated with ESPN on more than 20 Miami video essays that air throughout the Bowl Championship Series. In addition, Bluefoot produced and edited Miami, the opening sequence for both ESPN's January 7th College GameDay show and the 8:30pm Championship game. Bluefoot also produced and edited the “#GAMETIME” sequence featuring hip-hop artist Pitbull, which airs minutes before kickoff.
