Main-title maestros Elastic layer newsprint effects, bright colors and sketch drawings over old and new video footage to create a dynamic opening sequence for Showtime’s three-part documentary series, Shut Up and Dribble, executive produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter.

The series examines the cross-section of race and sports through the lens of the NBA, and looks at how athletes, like James, have been able to expand their brands beyond the basketball court into the worlds of politics, media and beyond.
