Nike: The Last Game
Alberto Ponte, Ryan O'Rourke
There is no greater danger than playing it safe.
Maybe that sounds strange to you at first, but after you’ve watched this Nike film, you’ll understand exactly what we mean.
Soccer isn’t perfect. The players are human, and humans make mistakes. Now, what if there was such a thing as a perfect soccer team? No risk of failure, no mistakes? Simply 100% accuracy, all the time.
Nike and Wieden+Kennedy Portland created an epic 3D-animated film about risky soccer versus safe soccer. On the one hand, we have star players such as Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Zlatan and Rooney. On the other hand, we have unbeatable clones that never miss.
All these characters need voices. That’s where MassiveMusic stepped in.
We watched the video and knew that casting the right voices for the characters was essential. Claudia Hesse from our Voice Services department had the great honour of working as a Voice Casting Director for this huge project, making sure that everything was perfectly adapted to the already amazing 3D-animation.
The final result is nothing short of amazing. In the five minute film, we follow some of the world’s best soccer players as their careers are coming to an end thanks to unbeatable clones. Soccer becomes boring – if everyone is perfect, there’s no uncertainty thus no excitement.
One saviour steps forward and creates a team of master players with one goal: score. Risk everything. Save soccer as we know it.
