Rugby Smashes Through Your January Blues in BBC Six Nations Trailer
Animated spot by Blinkink’s Elliot Dear positions rugby as an antidote to the British winter
Diets! Illness! The rain! Elliot Dear smashes through all of these January tropes with Wachowski-like flair to herald the coming of the BBC's Six Nations coverage.
Using motion-controlled in-camera wizardry and model-making Elliot recreates the "time-slice" technique, made famous in films such as The Matrix, leaving a rugby ball-shaped hole in the January blues.
Fans can follow the 2019 Six Nations on the BBC across TV, radio and online; starting with the opening game between France and Wales on Friday, February 1st.
