BBC RIO OLYMPICS

Production Company: Passion Pictures

Director: Derek Picken & Niklas Rissler

Art Director: Rafael Martin

Concept Artist/Matte Painter: Sammy Khalid

 

 

We were already very excited for the Rio Olympic Games, the main event of last summer - but we got even more excited when Passion Pictures called us to help them design the next BBC Olympics advert.

 

We had depicted Rio before in Nike’s ‘The Last Game’, celebrating the 2014 Football World Cup. This time, we departed from the favelas to explore the Brazilian jungle, where animals train in the shadow of our athletes...

 

While Dan helped set up the project financially and Justin provided some sketches for the pitch, Rafael took on the art direction of the commercial. He had great fun creating colourful and joyful concept art, while Sammy designed some gorgeous matte paintings.

For each animal in the spot, we prepared sketches and study sheets to try and match the animal with a particular sport. Here is one example sheet.

I worked on BBC Olympics from concept through to the final matte paintings. The project was very creative in terms of style, combining realism and a stylised tone.

I really enjoyed the design brought to the table and I feel the final product reflects this.
