Odyssee Grandeza: 7 months of work to celebrate 120 years of Real Madrid

Cette article est disponible en: Français (French)

Brand strategy & storytelling MNSTR, BOL production house and 2veinte animation studio teamed up for Odyssee Grandeza, an animated short film created to celebrate the 120th birthday of the famous soccer team Real Madrid, as well as advertise the launch of the new official Adidas x Real Madrid football jerseys.

Here’s the pitch for the short, followed by more information about the project.

Sarah, Moussa and Ben, together on the soccer field as well as in life, are following a rumor. They end up in a mysterious barbershop. They end up in a parallel universe, and they’ll have to overcome their own fears, inspired by great football players, in order to beat the forces of evil.

BOL production expanded on the pitch created by the agency in order to get a detailed script. The team chose to set the story in the suburbs of Paris, in order to “inspire the fans” of the soccer team. They also wanted the main character to go through a failure at the beginning of the short: this way, overcoming evil at the end would make of a satisfying narrative arc. The jerseys are of course prominently featured in the short film: they are literally magical, and the main characters become very powerful once they put them on. The team also included a lot of easter eggs, and French soccer player Karim Benzema can also be seen helping them during the short.

MNSTR, BOL and 2veinte chose a visual style reminiscent of japanese animation: this allowed them to make the action sequences more dynamic. They also explained us that they wanted to focus on “fast transitions and epic moves.”

The project required 7 months of work. The credits are available below.
