Geoff Capes was a fixture at every major athletics championships throughout the 1970’s. He then went on to find fame competing in the World’s Strongest Man series, becoming a household name in the UK. His life has been a varied one - not without its pitfalls - this documentary brings his story fully up to date.
An in-depth look into how the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the everyday lives of some of the participants & contributors to Filmnova’s previous coverage of the Superhero Tri event. Produced for Channel 4 under lockdown, the programme marries fresh content from the protagonists with the archive from the previous two events at Eton Dorney to give a real insight into the impact of the pandemic.
Commissioned before the postponement of EURO 2020, Filmnova were commissioned to produce a documentary chronicling the history of the UEFA European Championships. Produced entirely under Lockdown conditions with the Production team working completely remotely, the programme was delivered on time, on budget to the highest standard, a testament to what can be achieved even under the most testing of circumstances.
Borne out of the client’s requirement for further fresh content due to the postponement of EURO 2020, UEFA Underdogs was made in tandem with the Defining Moments documentary, highlighting the incredible success of smaller nations at the tournament. The programme fully utilised the UEFA archive & uncovered many previously unseen shots & angles.
