Hyundai FanDome Animation
The Hyundai Fandome, aka football heaven is a pop-up at London Kings Cross for EURO 2016. Featuring 360° screens that react in real time to the footy action.
Poet & Vuj – presenters for Youtube football juggernaut Copa90, love Pro Evolution Soccer.
The Sidemen – professional UK gamers, love Pro Evolution Soccer.
The two sides met for an epic afternoon of live knockout gaming action – we had the pleasure of producing the animations for the show.
How we did it
We took the animated intro we’d made for Copa90’s weekly show ‘Comments Below’ and made an edit in the middle. Last time around Vuj saved Poet’s 30 yard screamer, however this time we put the Sidemen in as a wall. The ball strikes Calfreezy in the face before bouncing out of the stadium, flying into orbit and through the clouds to football heaven.
Trying to mix the grunge branding style provided by Hyundai in their existing Dome assets (eg the cherubs below) and our clean cut style that we’d produced for Copa90 (ie Poet & Vuj) was a challenge. We added some grime to the look and luckily Hyundai were really happy with the results. The 45s intro was animated inside of After Effects using 2.5D techniques. The assets of the Sidemen and Poet and Vuj were also used for web promotions by Hyundai and Copa90.
