NFL + Mitú Presents
an Underdog Story: Rolando Cantú



NFL + Mitú Presents: An Underdog Story from Lindsey Mayer-Beug on Vimeo.



The wonderful people at Mitú commissioned me to make an animation that celebrates the first Mexican (that wasn’t a Kicker) to play in the NFL, Rolando Cantú.
 
Together we came up with a narrative using the audio from an interview with Cantú at ESPN. From that, I created a story and script that I then turned into this fun and crude animation.
Despite being created for a niche audience, it is fun for all and I promise it will make you giggle (we could all use a few these days). That alone is worth a look. A low brow, touching tale of perseverance and triumph! Check it out!
