WAFU 2017 – Opener


We got roped in by the guys at FOX International to do this theme opener for the WAFU Cup of Nations 2017, hosted by Ghana. It also extended into a broadcast sports package for the event. We were going for something that has some African colour and grit, something a little bit different from the usual shiny and glossy stuff you tend to see, but with tons of spunk and beat. On that note, pun intended, the music was done by Sound & Motion Studios – and the crowd roars!
