Idea: to recreate some of Premiere Leagues proud (and not so proud) moments.
From Vinni Jones´ ”testicle-squeeze” to Cantonas´ karate-kicks.
The pitch does not lie! This is 50 secs of dirty tricks and bad sportsmanship. And
right in the middle of it: hosts Alexander Schau and Thomas Aune.
”FC FOOTBALL” premiered on TV in the fall of 2011, and has received lots of interest
from soccer fans ever since.
For those not so into sports, it may still be of interest knowing that rig, animation
and rendering were done in Houdini and 3Ds Max, while the characters/models were done in
Zbrush (with Morphtargets embedded).
The audience was done with a custom particle system based on where the camera is pointing.
The compositing was done in Nuke, and we ran all shots through DaVinchi for
grading. Beers from REMA 1000 – cheers :beer: .

Hope you enjoy it :)
