A gritty opening for the European Rugby Champions’ Cup

We were approached by Sunset+Vine to help them produce a video introduction to one of the biggest games of the 2016 European Champions’ Cup featuring Leicester Tigers, one of the most successful British clubs of the professional era and Racing 92, a Paris based team who at the time were one of the big spenders in world rugby. 

Produced as part of the promotion for BT Sport's coverage of the clash, the video was aired just before the live game and seen by hundreds of thousands of viewers during the build up to the main event.

An extremely fast-paced project, a series of posters were designed to reflect the teams and their star players as well as quotes from commentators over the course of the season. These were then fly posted and filmed to make for a gritty and exciting edit.
