Cricket’s Match Fixers

Over 18 months of investigations, Medioto worked with Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit and helped reveal how criminal gangs bribe players and officials to fix matches and parts of matches – and make millions from betting on guaranteed outcomes.

The initial inspiration for the designs came from Bollywood posters and obviously some of the title text echo the old fashioned scoreboards on the cricket ground. Apart from the obvious title-card, we built profile animations, explainers for the uninitiated cricket fans, test match chapter headings, phone call animations, document/newspaper sequences and the players and authorities ‘right of reply’. There’s a montage below and further down more indepth samples of our motion graphics and animations from this investigation.

Here’s a link to the main “Cricket’s Match Fixers “ film on Youtube but for a taster sample of our graphics, have a look below.
