Mikros MPC


France Televisions have released their latest campaign ‘SUMO’. The film, produced by Mikros MPC follows a sumo wrestlers journey to the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games, in a Japanese-style 2d animation.

Mikros MPC worked in close collaboration with character designer, Stéphane Levallois, and MullenLowe France, to produce the spot in it's entirety, and honour the Japanese culture, the values of the Olympics and tease the new disciplines (skateboarding, mountain climbing, baseball and surfing) that will debut at the Summer Games.
