Starbridge Media Group Develops In-Stadium Animated Content For  Los Angeles Dodgers’ Superhero Nights

LA Dodgers Choose Starbridge to Support Creative Marketing Efforts for Team’s “Dodger Squad” Promotional Nights

Starbridge Media Group, Inc. has been called upon to use its experience as Emmy® Award-winning content creators to develop an in-stadium animation opening for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Superhero Promotional Nights, Starbridge CEO Jamie Crittenberger announced today.

Starbridge’s team of creative marketing professionals and graphic artists has developed a 20-second introduction piece to promote the Superhero-themed nights. The animated introduction will combine live-action with custom animation as it showcases the transformation of Dodgers’ stars Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, and Manny Ramirez into superheroes. Starbridge used its trademark comic book style animation to capture the spirit of the “Dodger Squad” promotion and enhance the in-game experience for the fans. 

The promotional nights will take place this season when the Dodgers host the Atlanta Braves on June 3; the Chicago Cubs on July 8; and the New York Mets on July 22. Game attendees will receive action figures of the three featured players during the respective “Dodger Squad” themed nights.

 “We are thrilled with the opportunity to work on behalf of one of the premier franchises in all of professional sports. The ‘Dodger Squad’ nights are a creative promotion and one in which we were excited to use our expertise to help.” said Starbridge President Ken Hutman. “We look forward to building on this relationship to support the LA Dodgers in their future creative content and marketing efforts in the years to come.”
