Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Production Company Turns to EVO for High-Speed Post Workflow

TAGS: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Post Production, Sports

April 11, 2017 in User Stories

To say Dale Earnhardt, Jr., “races cars” is a bit like suggesting Tom Brady “throws a ball around” or Lebron James “shoots hoops.” Those are accurate statements, of course, but they capture nothing of the drama — their exceptional talent, their showmanship, their triumphs, their heart.

And in Junior’s case, taking harrowing turns at 200 MPH — hour after hour — is just one of his skills. Sure, he “races cars,” but he also voices Disney cartoon characters, authors best-selling books, performs in music videos, owns a bar, and engages in meaningful work in the community. And he owns a full-service video and content production studio — Hammerhead Entertainment.
