The Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Team wanted a special opening created for Mario Lemieux’s last season as an active player, and Mirage delivered with this Silver (best) Telly Award winning animation. The animation required on-site photography, tons of photoshop work, and over 120 hours of animation time all over a very short turn around of two weeks! This piece was so popular that the Pens continued running the first half of it on the Jumbotron for the next 4 seasons!
