The Rugby League World Cup 2013 is getting closer.
The objective was to create a raw, emotive film which would drive ticket sales and get fans behind England for the opening match of the tournament versus Australia.
Internationals Sam Burgess and Gareth Widdop were shot on location in Sydney, with Kevin Sinfield, Rob Burrow and Tom Briscoe at England’s training camp in Leeds and Sam Tomkins in the Old Trafford dressing room.
We were able to move fast and react to the player’s limited availability by shooting with a small crew on the impressive Canon 1Dc.
This version was first screened at the Super League Grand Final for 70,000 RL fans. The 30-second TV cut will be broadcast during October.
