Nike Sportswear unveiled a teaser for their new short DEFIANT which chronicles the story of Athetics West. And they’ve used the artwork of comics artist and illustrator Nathan Fox to bring the story to animated life.
They broke rules. They broke records. They broke limits.
This is the story of the Defiant Dozen that put American track and field back on the map and sparked running as we know it today.
The full film will be released next Tuesday, October 19th and we’ll make sure to come back and let you know about it. In the meantime here’s 42 seconds of Nathan Fox badassery. I especially love how they even followed his trademark lunatic color schemes. This is awesome.
Defiant. The story of Athletics West
Previously Nike Stadiums had collaborated with artist and graphic novelist Danijel Zezelj on the Heroes of Speed soccer film. Their marketing department obviously has amazing taste in comic artists and illustrators and apparently DMZ fill-in artists.
