SAS: Who Dares Wins Trailer

The Brief

LoveLove Films were commissioned to create animated TV graphics for series three of Channel 4’s renowned TV series SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The return of the hit series SAS: Who Dares Wins sees Chief Instructor Ant Middleton and his elite team including Foxy, Ollie and Billy take 25 new civilian recruits through a grueling recreation of the SAS selection process. The Special Air Service (SAS) is the British Army’s most renowned Special Forces unit. Minnow Films asked the LoveLove team to produce satellite style maps that could show the routes the new recruits take.

The Process

We were delighted to work with BAFTA winning Minnow again and to have been chosen to produce the animation work.

LoveLove Films recreated satellite style animated map graphics, which showed the rough terrain and highlighted routes that the new recruits would have to navigate in order to hit an RV extraction point.

To create the map, we used satellite imagery as a reference and then 3D modeled geometry to match the real world geography. Then comped together icons, routes, and markers in animation software.


The Result

LoveLove Films’ Managing Director Georgina Hurcombe states: “It was an absolute pleasure to work with the Minnow team once again. Minnow always produce such exciting programmes so we were delighted to have been commissioned to provide the graphics for SAS: Who Dares Wins, a show the whole team enjoy!”

On working with LoveLove Films, Naomi, Series Producer on SAS: Who Dares Wins stated: “LoveLove Films did a brilliant job on the graphics for SAS: Who Dares Wins, series 3. They were fast, efficient and worked closely with us to get the right look we were after. I would not hesitate in recommending and working with them again in the future.”
