It’s such a relief to finally be able to talk about this project!
Premier League Productions were creating a 2 minute film to introduce the 2019 Manchester Derby.
For all you non-football fans out there, that’s when Manchester United play rivals Manchester City in one of the most popular and tense games of the season.
Manchester United (who play in red) are the ‘Fire’ and Manchester City, (who play in sky blue), are the ‘Ice’ element.
It’s Fire vs Ice.
This year Ice beat Fire – well of course!
It was 2-0 to Man City if you were wondering. The boys in blue did us proud.
Percy spent the day on set for the entire shoot – carving ice and assisting the production team to get the best shots of the Manchester City logo ice sculpture.
This is a flame bar and it was set up to create the perfect special effect of a backdrop of fire behind the Manchester City logo ice sculpture and the metal Manchester United logo. Despite the heat, the ice did really well.
You can watch the film here. You’ll see Percy at work, carving ice in the background and we think the whole video looks incredibly exciting and intense. Take a look…
