We proposed a six-part series called “About Trout,” made up of 1-2 minute interviews where Trout could share little things, like funny anecdotes and childhood memories, with his adoring fans. These interviews could be recorded on the road or in the hotel, anywhere or any time it would be convenient for him. That solved the problem with Trout’s busy schedule, but it presented a whole new challenge: how do you get maximum impact out of a mini-sized interview?
We rose to that challenge in two easy steps:
- Choose an interviewer who can set the guest at ease. In our case, that was beloved Color Analyst Mark “Gubie” Gubicza, who just happens to be good friends with Mike Trout in real life.
- Bring Trout’s narration to life by pairing it with hilariously tongue-in-cheek animation, supercharging the comedy in his stories and showcasing a new side of his personality.
