De Bruyne and Dybala Star in the highly anticipated EA SPORTS FIFA 19 Campaign

In the next phase of promotion for the highly-anticipated FIFA 19 game, footballers De Bruyne and Dybala star in a print campaign and gaming assets for the new video game. Media Agency, Lagardère partnered with high-end sport and athlete photographer Rafael Astorga and LS Productions for the FIFA Ultimate Team shoot.

The players showcase their respective skills and signature on-field celebration poses in the striking images whilst adorned in their team kits and the FIFA Ultimate Team Kit for 2019.

Taking place over two days at London’s Big Sky Studios, LS Productions serviced and produced the shoot with De Bruyne and Dybala. With a wealth of experience working with sporting talent and a key production hub in Manchester, LS Productions are well-versed in working with high-end footballers.

LS Productions managed the footballers, their trainers and coaches on set to allow for the very best performances to be captured in a limited time frame. Abi Atkinson, Senior Producer at LS Productions says: “Athletes have demanding and strict schedules meaning the time they have on-set is often quite short. So it’s crucial to have a highly-skilled team and to be prepared.”

“We set up the studio and arranged body doubles of the footballers to do the pre-light run-throughs before the talent arrived, allowing us to be most efficient on the day. We also had the athlete’s trainers and coaches on-set to ensure they were comfortable to perform, and, of course, their preferred music to create a brilliant atmosphere!” says Abi.

The production service company also covered details for action shots such as laying AstroTurf and crash pads and arranged for makeup artists to ensure the talent’s skin reflected their dewy in-game complexion. LS Productions also organised a private jet for one of the players.

As well as the still shots, behind-the-scenes motion assets for socials were also capture on set. Abi adds: “The motion elements of the shoot were actually a last-minute addition but, because we had a tight team in place, were able to accommodate this and in just one day.” We brought on board a great team, who at short notice, were able to quickly ascertain what was involved creatively and get things in place ready for the shoot.

On working with LS Productions, Andy Gilooley, Video Producer at EA Sports, says: "Great service, very professional, wonderful people."

“Team was lovely, flexible and experienced!" says Melissa MacGillivray, Executive Producer at Rafael Astorga Photographer.

The creative assets form part of a wider campaign for the game launched in September 2018.

EA SPORTS Creates Tornado Move with Cristiano Ronaldo to Show Why FIFA 18 is ‘More Than A Game’

To mark the worldwide launch of FIFA 18 on September 29th, adam&eveDDB and EA SPORTS have developed a new and innovative skill move that is unique to the game. ‘El Tornado’, starring Cristiano Ronaldo is set to permeate the culture of football, video games, and sport. The move is a seamless dragback, flick, and spinning volley (like a tornado) that has never been attempted in a real professional game - yet.

The commercial showcases how skills and ideas flow from EA SPORTS FIFA into both football and culture. Beginning with a player performing the ‘El Tornado’ move in FIFA 18 for the first time, they upload it for the review of the FIFA 18 community where it gathers traction from influencers around the world, spawning countless attempts and spin-offs as it ricochets through culture.

From in-the-game to on-the-pitch and across the globe, Antoine Griezmann, Dele Alli, and NBA superstar James Harden give us their take on the move after witnessing it first performed in-game and then on the pitch of the Santiago Bernabéu by FIFA 18 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo.

‘El Tornado’ is then picked up by brands such as adidas and Coke, who developed their own versions of ‘El Tornado’ content, as well as inspiring Run the Jewels to create their own bespoke track; “Mean Demeanor (El Tornado Mix)”. Dele even showcases his own ‘El Tornado’ Facebook Camera Lens.

And the advert is just the start, with top FIFA 18 players, world class footballers, brands and artists already being inspired by their first glimpses of ‘El Tornado’ - the real cultural impact of this new skill move is playing out on training pitches right now. If professional players prove that they can replicate the move in training, EA SPORTS can unlock the skill move for their virtual likeness in the game (virtual players and likeness must already be available in FIFA 18).

The campaign is launching with a longform online film supported by 90s, 30s, 15s, social story formats, and TV globally. 

Mat Goff, CEO of adam&eveDDB says: “EA SPORTS FIFA is an iconic gaming and entertainment franchise. The chance to build a new skill into a game so embedded in culture is a rare opportunity. It’s been fantastic working with EA, the best footballing talent on the planet and the FIFA gaming community and we can’t wait to see El Tornado take the world by storm.”
