The Vans Downtown Showdown is one of the world’s biggest Skateboarding events, created and executed by Vans Europe. Vans needed a Live, TV, Digital and News Broadcast package to showcase the event to a global audience.
Boomerang created and produced a 6 hour Live Digital show featuring live contest action from the four skate arenas and studio interviews with special guests from the world of Skate and Music. VT inserts were also produced to drop into the live show which helped explain the sport, the culture and the athletes.
A 6-camera live HD OB complete with GFX, Streaming Solution and Web Site was created for the live show which enabled Boomerang to supply Vans with audience data information.
Boomerang also provided on-site post production services to produce short form digital content and news.
In addition Boomerang also produced a quick turn-around half hour TV show for International distribution and Channel 4.
