Sports Illustrated Cover Reveal

Los Angeles Dodgers

what i did

I tend to want to do a little extra when the bare minimum is expected. Case in point this 2017 Sports Illustrated cover:

2017 Sports Illustrated cover of Justin Turner and Yasiel Puig (photo by Jon SooHoo)

The cover caught most of us in the front office by surprise (even Justin Turner, he admitted to me later). Since Jon SooHoo, the team photographer, made this photo I knew I had the sequence of photos before the cover shot. I imported the photos into Photoshop, aligned the layers then exported to After Effects to add some motion.
