NFL Total Access

NFL x 1500 Sound Academy

NFL Total Access Coordinating Producer, Kingsley Smith, is excited to be working with 1500 Sound Academy on reimagining NFL Films’ sound by modernizing traditional tracks to be used for teasers and specialty-themed show highlights.


NFL Films has used classic tracks alongside heartful narrations and moving images as key elements to their storytelling standards. The style is defined of powerful, dramatic moods and dynamic beats for the most compelling visuals. NFL Films aren’t just seen; they’re felt.


We want to create a 60-second track with modern beats layered on top of traditional compositions that can be broken down into multiple short tracks for bumpers, highlights, and teasers. Reimagine telling a series of smaller stories that results in a big epic story.


Examples of NFL Films’ Traditional Sound

Week 7 highlights from Bills vs Patriots and Chargers vs Chiefs without music. Each highlight starts with a graphic of the team logos.
