Wimbledon | The Story Continues
The 2019 Wimbledon promotional campaign charts the historical context of the Wimbledon champions from 1934 to the present day.
The recreations of historical scenes use physical models, props, set pieces, stock footage and post effects.
HOW WE DID IT
We were bought on board by production designer Sean Hogan to assist and facilitate the model builds and prop standby. The hero model makes of the mars rover were looked after by Colin Armatage and painted by Roy Bell in our workshop – a champion build in the time!
We model made the Amelia Earhart plane on an existing Lockheed toy, adding rigging points for stop-frame purposes. Other contributions included a replication of the “BBC Colour” camera signage used on the vintage camera. On set we built a small section of Everest with snow and wind effects and a landscape for the Mars rover model.
