Dougal Wilson and MPC: Paralympics “We’re The Superhumans”
Blink director Dougal Wilson crafts a potentially disastrous brief into an uplifting and emotional joy with his fearless musical treatment of Channel 4’s campaign for the 2016 Rio Paralympics with MPC providing VFX across 144 shots, including extensive crowd replication and creation of the new Rio stadium in CG.
The spot features over 140 disabled cast members from around the planet and is powered by The Sammy Davis Jr track “Yes I Can” re-recorded by a band of disabled musicians assembled for the occasion.
