EURO 2016 Mascot presentation
Kaktus Film has for the third time in a row won a prestigeous contract with UEFA, this time for the EURO 2016 in France.
As in the cases of EURO 2008 and EURO 2012 we are proud and happy to announce that we once again succeded to scoop the inspiring task of creating an animated presentation film of the official mascot for the UEFA EURO football Championship. On behalf of UEFA Kaktus Film made this fully-animated 2 minutes long presentation film, which had its world premiere during the friendly match France vs Sweden at the newly renovated Stade de Vélodrome in Marseille on November 18, 2014. You can all see what went down on that day by clicking our blog tab here or visit the UEFA website here.
The presentation film marks the start of the mascot’s trip through Europe towards EURO 2016 and will be followed by a naming contest where fans get to vote for the name of the new mascot. Until November 26, 2014 you can cast your own vote here.
