Manchester United and Adidas Intro 2020/21 Home Kit

Director Oliver Davies and The Mill crew explore the idea that a soccer shirt is made of far more than fabric in this dynamic CG promo introducing the new Manchester United home jerseys for the 2020/21 season.

Davies worked closely with The Mill VFX creative director Will McNeal to transform in-game footage of Manchester United players into embroidered 3D characters using Houdini.

Oliver Davies: “The film was born from the notion that every story starts with a thread and the 20/21 MUFC home shirt is no different. Every stitch, every color, every badge has been woven from historic moments — from defeats and glory — and every shirt carries the weight of the previous within it.

“The film aims to demonstrate that this is not just a simple jersey, it’s a tapestry of memories and emotion passed from one generation to the next.”
