2014 started where we left off with UEFA in 2013; running about all over Europe.
So far this year, we have filmed in Marbella, Madrid twice, Lisbon three times, Sevilla three times, Barcelona, Macedonia, Malta, Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia and Munich where this piece was shot. Next we’re off to Hungary at the end of July for the U19 Championship. All content filmed by Felipe and JP, and directed/produced by Nick Bolger.
Icon’s relationship with the Lauerus foundation goes back to 2006, when the award ceremony was held in Barcelona for the first time.
During each year since then we provide camera crews and producers to cover Laureus foundation work in the US and Spain.
And this year we were back at the prestigeous awards ceremony in Malaysia providing a producer/director and camera team, covering events previous to the ceremony night and full coverage of the red carpet and back stage with names such as event host Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Foxx as well as all the sports stars present. We also focused on providing specific coverage for all Spanish media outlets for Laureus.
The hyper-successful car series Top Gear came to Spain to film an episode (s20, ep.3), and asked icon to provide the best aerial team available. We filmed an high speed sequence on a disused airport strip south of Madrid using a twin engine helicopter with the Wescam system, 10 feet off the ground at speeds over 200 km/h. See the video here
