Champions League Animations – Pepsi
A commission by Pepsi & Copa90 charting famous moments in Champions League history.
Each week, from the QF’s to the Final, a new batch of animations were created bringing back classic moments in Champions League history.
In QF week #1 we remember back to April 2003 when Brazilian International Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima’s hattrick vs Manchester United put Manchester out on aggregate at Old Trafford. His aggressive and dominant display on the pitch represented in a fluid, hand painted bullfighter style.
This is complimented by Lionel Messi’s tearing apart of Arsenal in 2010, scoring 4 goals at the Nou Camp. A feat only ever achieved by 6 other players in Champs league history. His ability to move past players seemingly being in two places at the same time is represented artistically in the animations by cubism movement of the early 20th Century.
The full project included 5 batches of animations culminating in Zidane’s famous side volley in the 2002 final.
