An opening title sequence, designed by Jump, for ITV's coverage of the European Football Championships.

Design company: Jump

Client: ITV Sport

Brief: To combine classic footballing moments, set against classical music.

How it was done: Clips were rotoscoped and turned into 3D “sketches” against a backdrop of massive parchment. Live action musicians were filmed in HD by ITV. Jump added more parchments in Lightwave and then sketched players in After Effects. The original concept is by John Mckenna (ITV); filmed in HD by Roger Laxon and post-produced by Russell Mann and Andy Horan.

Watch it: On ITV throughout Euro 2008.
