Football. It’s completely mental when you think about it. All those players, the managers, positions, decisions, not to mention all of the training and the tactical skills. Seriously, the possibilities and permutations of things that have to happen before anyone even scores a goal is mind-blowing. Which is what keeps fans hooked and what they love to see – the whole crazy, chaotic, explosive, circus of it all. So that’s exactly what we put on screen: a mixed up, dialed up, blown out of all proportion version of football that fans had never experienced before. Collaborating with visionary Spanish director Ernest Desumbila, our team set to work on creating complete and utter mixed-media madness. We had live action. We had CGI. We produced animation. We designed pyrotechnics, six separate football kits, hundreds of props and a mountain made of blue sand. Mental indeed.
