To begin our 2018 EU LCS season, we created a video for our fans with our League of Legends team called ‘The Dream Lives On’. In the piece, we wanted to address the uncertainty coming into this year, building the new line-up around our star mid laner Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic and the hope and strength of the new team we believe in.
“The original idea I had was inspired by The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I wanted to show Perkz on a journey of finding his teammates and his inner self along the way. Each of the new players were like the separate planets in my mind and this is where it all began. In the final version we got rid of some extra props we had and decided to keep the video simple and to the point for a more powerful impact. As many people on social media noticed, one of the inspirations for visuals was the Upside Down from Stranger Things Season 1. I guess we got quite lucky that Perkz also had a fitting haircut”, – says Head of Content at G2 Esports Karina Ziminaite.
Our goal was to make a one-of-a-kind video to showcase our strong team and while at the same time acknowledging that the changes were not easy.
We worked together on this video with our friends over at Yung Eldr, a local creative house in Berlin. With this collaboration, we brought the creative team of G2 Esports and a team of experienced motion graphic artists together.
As many fans were curious about our creative process, we are glad to share some behind the scenes moments.
