FIFA film broadcast all over the world

FIFA 20 Centres for 2010 from Slinky Pictures on Vimeo.

The World Cup Kick off concert was broadcast all over the world last Thursday 10/06/10. And with an audience of 30,000 people at the Orlando stadium in Soweto it looked like there was a pretty amazing atmosphere there.

Unfortunately they didn't show the film on the BBC coverage, but it was broadcast on tv in other countries including Italy and Germany, as well as online. Here is a link to the German tv coverage so you can see the film in context (It is about 28 mins in. Please note that in this broadcast unfortunately it has been squashed and cropped top and bottom):öffnungskonzert-der-Fußball-WM-2010

World Cup film delivered!

On Friday we delivered the film to Comic Relief, and the tapes are flying out to South Africa as we speak.

It looks great. So I'm really excited, and hoping to see it on tv on Thursday 10th during the coverage of the opening concert.

A big THANK YOU to all the team at Slinky that worked so hard to get it all done to a tight schedule: Maria, Ryan, Rob, Luca, Toby, Nick, Michael, and Dorothee. Also a big thanks to Jo at 750mph who did an absolutely amazing job on the sound, also Nancy at 750mph for fitting us in, Pete Ellmore our brilliant DOP, Matt and Max at Clapham Road, Syleste for her lovely arm, Steve Maud for the live action footage, and Gary and George at Munky for squeezing us in on Friday.

Couldn't have done it without you all!
