TOUR DE FRANCE 2014
TEAM PRESENTATION CEREMONY
These films were commissioned for the Tour De France Team Presentation Ceremony 2014. They were shown to an audience of 10,000 people at Leeds First Direct arena on a 32m wide 4K cinema screen and broadcast to over 330m viewers worldwide.
RIDE OF YOUR LIFE
A gritty black and white film showing the blood sweat and tears of a Tour De France rider. Filmed over 2 days with a local triathlete on the actual route of the tour, we didn't want typical rolling country hills and beautiful scenery, we wanted real-world cycling. Man and machine vs the road. This film was scored by renowned composer, Phillip Sheppard and performed by a live orchestra and choir.
Thanks to BMW Stratstone for giving us an X5 for the exterior filming. Watch the full behind the scenes video below.
A series of 21 short films used as transitional elements throughout the presentation. We found and filmed real people all over Yorkshire to link a historical fact about the Tour De France to their passion or job. You can see a selection of our favourites below.
GOOD GOOD PEOPLE OF YORKSHIRE
We filmed 200 members of the public in Leeds' finest retail estate, Trinity Shopping centre. These we cut together as the background to a live performance by Embrace of their hit single "All You Good Good People" to close the show.
We cut the opening film into several short stings and bumpers for use by ITV as transitional elements to the commercial break.
