FOX Sports, the official US broadcaster of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, has issued a very special video to mark the official countdown to Russia 2018. The clip features a specially-commissioned piece of music created by Russian neoclassical pianist and composer Krill Richter, and recorded in Moscow with the support of Eventica.
We provided 360 degree project management for the shoot, including venue negotiation, permits and licensing, local staff recruitment and coordination with an exceptionally talented team of musicians. The result? “Where Angels Fear to Tread”, FOX Sports’ official theme music for their World Cup coverage, comprises of bold, complex and emotionally-charged passages using a 23-piece orchestra, featuring strings, trumpets, cornets and piano.
“Today, we celebrate another milestone in our journey to Russia,” said David Neal, Executive Producer of FIFA World Cup™ on FOX and Vice President of Production for FOX Sports. “We are delighted to kick off the celebration by unveiling Kirill’s extraordinary FOX Sports World Cup theme music, rolling out the digital and social campaigns and implementing company-wide initiatives, helping to build momentum before the tournament begins on June 14.”
