Wimbledon

— #TakeOnHistory

Smith and Foulkes take a beautifully illustrated and animated journey through the evolution of the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

The film follows a continuous tennis rally, beginning in 1877 with Spencer Gore, through the ages right up to the stars of the present day. As each new era begins, the illustrative style evolves with it from Victorian lithographs to a ’90s graphic novel style; capturing the era and historic details such as radically changing fashions, pony rollers used to keep the courts in prime condition, tv broadcasts, and even the switch to yellow balls.
