Habana Avenue produces, posts 'MNF' open

NEW YORK - For the fourth year, Habana Avenue's (www.habanaavenue.com) EP/CD Steven J. Levy supervised production of the show open for ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Hank Williams Jr. returns again this year, marking the 22nd time he's performed the show’s open.

This year's open picks up where last year's left off — at the fictitious MNF Hall of Fame. There, Williams unveils a gallery of highlights from past seasons.

Habana produced the project at a facility in Nashville near Williams' home. Production designer KJB Kiely, supported by Rose Brand, was challenged with replicating the look of last year's location, the Parthenon museum in Nashville's Centennial Park.

An assortment of cameras were used for the shoot, including a Sony F 900, a Panasonic VariCam II, a Red digital cinema camera, and a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Editing was handled on an Avid Adrenaline system.
