NorthHouse had the pleasure of producing the visuals for this explosive Opening Ceremony. 20 LED screens stood tall along the width of Twickenham Stadium which rose out of rocks scattered around the pitch. We filmed players and gave the illusion of the players breaking through rocks in the screens. We created explosive nation reveals, logos, branding, name-titles, countdowns etc. We also created visuals for the 'Ribbon' screens that wrap around the perimeter.   Broadcast Footage Rights: ITV Music: Steve Sidwell
