ITV: UEFA Euro 2016

This is a commercial ad of ITV. This commercial was released in June 2016 in United Kingdom. Under the title of “ITV: UEFA Euro 2016”.

Tony Pastor & Kim Teddy were commissioned to produce a set of titles, bumpers and on-screen graphics for UEFA Euro 2016 Football Championships. We used the classic art deco posters of 1920’s & 30’s as an inspiration for the look. Placing the stars of modern European football in these romantic settings, a fun nostalgic scene setter for this summers football tournament.

La mer
Qu’on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d’argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie

Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d’une chanson d’amour
La mer
A bercé mon cœur pour la vie
