In 2012, the word was out that the Premier League was looking to commission 3D models that could be used on Premier League broadcasts Worldwide. They became frustrated when the idea seemed to stall. Not quite knowing what we were about to get ourselves into, Media219 turned to somebody special and asked the simple question “How hard can this be?”.
Approximately two months later we took our pitch to the Premier League and offered them detailed models for all 20 Premier League clubs for the coming 3 seasons, updating new stadiums as and when needed and creating incredibly detailed models that would show off each stadium in its glory. The rest is history and the long process of making models from scratch that matched each stadium was a slow and painful one.
Images were pulled from sources all over the web. Detailed photographs were taken of stadiums as and when they were needed. Cities were constructed around the models.
Then there were the renders. Lots and lots of renders.
We learned a lot from the first batch of stadiums we constructed.
The 3D models proved hugely successful with not only the Premier League but also broadcasters Worldwide who used them on all live content.
