Simple Session is Europe’s biggest professional BMX and Skateboard competition where the world’s best athletes compete for one of action sports’ most coveted prizes.
Estonia was the location where Boomerang produced the live OB sport event for Red Bull Media House in collaboration with OrchestraBlue.
The brief from Red Bull Media House was to open up the sport and athletes to a wider and broader global audience who would be watching the live show on Red Bull TV.
We produced an intelligent build up show that broke down the sport, the all-important tricks and the athletes in an engaging way, keeping the balance of entertaining and informing newcomers to the sport as well as keeping the core fans of the sport engaged with the show. With our on-site post production team we created dynamic VT content, which further delved into the sport placing the action and athletes into context.
Following the build up show we then went into 3 hours of live sporting action with highmo replays, live scoring graphics and explanatory VT content as well as engaging the audience through social media.
Christian Stevenson and Corbin Harris presented the show with commentary from Tim Warwood and Sebastian Keep.
