Miami Marine Stadium was once among America's most legendary music venues, but was abandoned more than two decades ago after Hurricane Andrew hit the city.
Now, Heineken's "Cities" campaign is helping restore the destination to its former glory, with an Indiegogo campaign to support the restoration. Meanwhile, the beer brand has created a stop motion animation film, by Publicis New York, highlighting the amazing graffiti that currently covers the structure. In recent years it has become a canvas for graffiti artists, and it's not clear whether this will stay with the restoration.
With five cameras rolling simultaneously, 10 local Miami graffiti artists hand painted every stop-motion animation sequence, frame by frame. Some scenes lasting just seconds took nearly three days to complete.
Andy Bird, chief creative officer, Publicis New York, said in a statement: "The Heineken Marine Stadium project has been really fun, working with so many talented artists and designers to honor an iconic piece of Miami history. This piece is a tribute to the vibrancy of the stadium's back story, a stadium which has been a mecca to the very same local graffiti artists who came back to celebrate it."
