Blinkink’s Elliot Dear and McCann London Serves Up New Campaign for Wimbledon
Blinkink director Elliot Dear has teamed up with the All England Club (AELTC) and McCann London to serve up the new campaign for The Championships, Wimbledon 2019.
Under the umbrella of #JoinTheStory, the new campaign reflects that Wimbledon has shared the front pages with headline news events around the globe ever since its first staging in 1877, playing its part in the stories of our time for over 100 years.
Elliot captures the heritage, history and excitement of The Championships in this launch film, The Story Continues, which sees historical achievements unfolding in parallel with epic Wimbledon moments. The film was created through a highly innovative mixed-media process, seamlessly blending live action, stop-motion, CGI, and stock footage.
Since before Fred Perry graced the court in the 1930s, the Championship has shared the front pages with headline news events around the globe. In this sense Wimbledon has shared a stage with world events for over a hundred years.
