Barcelona (May 20, 2021)— NEP Spain announced today that they have won a WorldMediaFestivals | Television & Corporate Media Awards - Intermedia-globe-Silver award in the Entertainment category for their work supporting the production of the Red Bull Batalla De Los Gallos World Final 2020. This international freestyle rap battle pitted the world’s hottest Spanish-speaking MCs against one another to take home the top prize, streamed live from the Dominical Republic on December 12, 2020.
NEP Spain, along with their NEP colleagues around the globe and in partnership with Red Bull Media House, pushed the limits of what is possible with broadcast, AR and virtual technologies. Producing the competition completely in a virtual environment, NEP constructed a greenscreen studio from scratch at Pinewood Studios in the Dominican Republic using 50 gallons of specialty chromakey paint together with 95 skypanels, six gaming render engines, six tracking engines, specially calibrated lenses, and over 100 tracking points, all powered by Unreal Engine. Supported by NEP’s specialty broadcast flypacks and 80 professionals from Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Singapore, Argentina and the Dominican Republic, this production came together in just six weeks, marrying creativity and technology.
“This production was both a thrill and a challenge to support, and the results were fantastic. We are so proud of our team for their hard work and dedication, and this recognition means so much,” says Joel Mestre, Country Manager, NEP Spain.
