Christmas

It was the Delight before Christmas: Singer Leona Lewis

HABANA Avenue was thrilled to produce yet another major sports open for ESPN’s coverage of the NBA on Christmas Day. Working with Leona Lewis was a joy for the entire team. As with any shoot during the holidays in New York City, the logistics issues were tricky but, our production management team delivered the project seamlessly.

Additionally, the HABANA team was tasked with providing the Art Direction for the piece and was able to utilize the very special talents of Rebecca Conran, one of our new creative stars. With only two weeks from start to finish, each member of the production went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was accounted for, planned and executed.

Kudos to the entire team!
