After the Barcelona commercial they asked me again to direct their new international commercial. They have a sponsorship deal with Manchester United and almost the whole team was going to feature in their new commercial. I am really happy with the result. They made a making of that you can find in my folder “making of”. We had the players dived in two groups. Three actually if you count sir Alex. So, we first shot the left side of the plane except for Rooney and with the rest of the plane filled with body doubles. On the second day, sir alex in the morning against a green screen and then the rest of the 11 players later on the day. We had them for two hours, which seems short, but we were well prepared because we shot the whole commercial the day before with the body doubles. The players saw it and knew exactly what to do. Funny that Anderson still remembered me from adidas 2 years ago…
