ESPN Xgames

Born Free

Agency: Africa


Since the mid-90s the Xgames, a competition created and broadcasted by ESPN has helped take sports such as Skateboarding and BMX into the mainstream. Since it's first edition in 1995 various sports have been added to the games, and generations and generation of fearless atheletes (read: absolute nutcases) have been crowned champions. So with the Xgames turning 18 this summer, and therefore reaching adulthood, ESPN has decided to celebrate this special birthday by releasing film starring female skateboarder Karen Jonze.

This professional campaign titled 'Born Free' was published in Brazil in August, 2013. It was created for the brands: ESPN and Xgames, by ad agency: Africa. This Film medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 11 years ago.
