What is the Fan Dome?
The Hyundai Fandome, aka football heaven, is a pop-up at London Kings Cross for EURO 2016. The dome has 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.
What we did
Previously, me and Roger had created a 20s animated intro for Copa90’s weekly show ‘Comments Below’. We used the same animation but added a twist to the ending. Instead of Vuj saving Poet’s 30 yard screamer we put the Sidemen in as a wall. After Poet strikes the freekick, the ball smashes Calfreezy square in the face before bouncing out of the stadium, into orbit and through the clouds to football heaven.
I made the intro 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.
Illustrations once again by the incredible talent that is Roger Wade.
