Collaboration with Portland Timbers Nominated for Northwest Emmy

“Life is about memories and moments… and it’s about, every once in awhile, a little bit of magic.” -- Caleb Porter

These were the words of the Portland Timbers’ head coach, Caleb Porter, as he looked back on the team’s 2015 playoff season, consisting of seven wins and two draws, that led them to win the MLS Cup. A historical moment for the team and the town that will not soon be forgotten. However, to ensure that their victory is remembered for years to come, the team’s internal production team came together to create “The Magic Was Real,” a 30-minute feature recounting the team’s rise to glory.

The cinematic, inspiring short film has been nominated for an Emmy by the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the category “Sports -- One-Time Special,” and we’re honored to be a part of it. Featuring music by Marmoset artists SmokeM2D6, Analog Colors and Hanne Kolstø, the story artfully captures the trials and triumphs of the Timbers’ journey to the top.
