Rugby? Check. Golf? Check. Impossible trick shot? Check. At Tanami we love a challenge, so when Scottish Rugby approached us with one of the craziest challenges yet, we said ‘game on’! Scotland Internationalist Stuart Hogg versus European Tour Pro Golfer Richie Ramsay, in a head-to- head competition with a series of cross-sport challenges set by Nathan Hines.
The ultimate goal of the video was to raise awareness of BT Murrayfield acting as the host of the prestigious European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup Finals games, and subsequently to generate ticket sales.
By using a two-camera setup as well as a Ronin camera gimbal and a drone, Tanami captured a variety of shots which showcased BT Murrayfield as a host venue. This setup also allowed the team to capture the genuine reactions of Stuart, Richie and Nathan from various angles.
The time we had with talent was very limited, so in order to make the most of it we had to be thorough with our planning and preparation. The challenges each had to be set up quickly and efficiently to allow enough time to capture all three within a tight timeframe. This could not have been done without the co-operation of our sports stars, who were each an absolute pleasure to work. Richie even attended our pre-production meeting and recce ahead of filming which helped tremendously with the smooth running of our schedule.
#TeamTanami faced its own timed challenge head-on as we shot, edited and delivered the series of four videos in just four days. The main video racked up 145k+ views and well over 700 shares, with the additional shorter edits contributing to the total amount of over 200k views; what’s more, the response and engagement from fans has been entirely positive. A great way to see Stuart off before his tour with the British & Irish Lions!
