Sounds Like … Polar Skate Co.

Role: Motion graphics

„Pontus contacted me over the summer with the idea to turn Jamie Platt Pro during the world premiere of the film in London. Since becoming Pro is one of the biggest recognitions in a skater’s career it is not uncommon to throw a surprise party for the fresh Pro. The idea was to keep the whole team in the dark and surprise everyone onsite including Jamie. The reveal moment was during the film when Jamie wallies the stairs and in the background a classic red double-decker bus passes by. Perfect timing. Only that the bus advertising should say „Jamie Platt is now Pro for Polar Skate Co.“ Obvious enough that shot wasn’t preplanned, so the underlying footage was less than ideal to pull this off. But in the end this has had to be one of the nicest ways to turn someone Pro and for sure worth all the hours of tracking and readjusting.“
