The FA Cup

Client: ITV Studio

Network: ITV

It's Saturday morning - football morning

A father takes his son to the local café en route to the big game. Half way through egg and chips our boy picks up his comic and losses him self in a thrilling fantasy world of the FA Cup. The 'dare to dream' competition comes alive with bruising sequences of animated hero's battling to gain the advantage. Uplifting imagery of 'giant killers' and wonder goals build tension, whilst classic cup moments stream past evoking a sense of nostalgia. The culmination is a festival of football running through the pages of a heavily stylised, contemporary animated graphic novel, Roy of the Rovers in Gotham City. Illustrator was used to create the hand sketched animations with 2D and 3D components on maya and after effects. Compositing was done on Shake.
