As part of the Beats ‘Made Defiant’ marketing campaign we were asked to create an animation of Harry Kane’s rise through the ranks to become England captain. The animation billed as ‘From Couch to Captain’.
We start with Harry Kane back in 2014, leaping from the sofa and starting his career at Tottenham. He soon progresses through 100 Premiership goals and finds himself stepping out onto the pitch at the 2018 world cup.
At time of writing this England have just won their first group match against Tunisia (only the 3rd time in history England have won an opening World Cup match). Kane bagged himself two and the animation was released shortly after the game bringing in lots of views and likes.
We can only hope at the time of reading England have gone onto to win the WC. Probably a 7-0 win against Germany in the final. We’d put a bet on down the bookies now but we’ll be playing Germany in the semis if we get through so that would be crazy.
Once again, shout out to working with Copa90 on this animation. Their relentless creativity knows no bounds.
