adidas Originals – “The House of Mutombo” Animated Series | Teaser Video

By - July 29th, 2013

With the re-launch of the adidas Mutombo looming, adidas Originals devised a clever animated series to highlight the accomplishments of basketball legend Dikembe Mutombo and his 18 seasons as a pro. Titled the “House of Mutombo,” from the NBA All-Star’s now famous finger-wagging “Not In My House” gesture, the animated series features traditional cut-and-paste-style illustrations by Nathan McKee, which were then brought to life by animator Jamal Qutub, musician PJ Portlock, and Portland-based creative agency ROUNDHOUSE. Three episodes in all, the series will debut in the coming weeks before the adidas Mutombo re-release on August 24th. In the meantime, here is a glimpse at the animation process from a “how-to” perspective.
