UEFA Play Anywhere

UEFA Play Anywhere
1x 2″ – Red Earth Studio
This campaign film for UEFA, features Liv Cooke – current freestyle football world champion – as well as a selection of the world’s best female football players including Fran Kirby and Ada Hegerberg.

The upbeat and visually striking film transports us between a variety of diverse scenes across Europe as the backdrop for our story: including urban London, war-torn buildings in Dubrovnik, the beautiful landscapes of the Outer Hebrides and even a stadium located on a tiny island in the jaw-dropping scenery of Norway.

The film blends positive energy with humour, and seeks to convey the excitement and accessibility of playing football. We see that football is a sport you can play anywhere. Whether playing as a team or practising ‘keepy-uppy’ on the roof of a Norwegian fishing boat, our message is inclusive: football is for everyone, wherever you are.

The film is an evolution of the UEFA’s We Play Strong campaign, adopting the same #PlayAnywhere hashtag and will be primarily promoted online via social channels as well as being provided to broadcasters of UEFA women’s football.

START UP LIBYA   –   Feature Doc & Series
BBC World   –   2x 1hr   /   Feature Doc   –   90mins
Start Up Libya is a feature documentary that was also quickly taken up by BBC World for a two-part series format (partly following the success of Young, Clever & Libyan BBC series from the same team).

From the rubble of conflict, a new generation of Libyan entrepreneurs is emerging.  20 teams, comprising some of Libya’s brightest young people, have been selected for the semi-finals of Libya’s first start-upcompetition.  For five weeks in Benghazi, teams will develop their ideas and pitch head-to-head against their rivals.  Ranging from Libya’s first registered mobile games company, to two all-female teams working for women’s empowerment, the competition is fierce. Only ten teams can make it through to the finals in Beirut.

BBC World   –   3x 1hr
This 3-part series followed 23 graduates from Benghazi as they embarked on a year long management science course at Cambridge University in the UK. Tatweer Research initiated the nationwide search for these students – a company aiming to foster a new Knowledge Economy beyond the Libyan oil and gas industry, by nurturing the brightest young minds in Libya.

The idea of the programme was to support these students in bringing back skills to help build Libya’s scientific research base, but as filming continues the country descends further into civil war. Young, Clever & Libyan gives an entirely new perspective on Benghazi life and the passion these graduates have for their country.
