Smith & Foulkes: The Grand National 2015

Channel 4’s promotion for the annual UK steeplechase spectacle known as Crabbie’s Grand National Festival takes a mythological turn as Nexus directors Smith & Foulkes and 4Creative craft a classic adventure/fairytale of “The Outsider,” a unicorn foal with runty wings and a twisted horn, overcoming impossible odds.

John Allison and Chris Bovill, Heads of 4Creative: “People love the grand national because even the outsider has a chance. We wanted to dramatise this whilst at the same time blowing the whistle on all the prejudiced unicorns out there.”
