New work from Sammy Khaild for the BBC Olympics

Sammy was recently working on matte paintings for the BBC Olympics opening cinematic ‘Trail’ with the amazing team at Painting Practice in London. You can see one of the images above, to see more please go to
This is what Sammy had to say about the job; I had the great pleasure of collaborating with the team at Painting Practice on the trailer for BBC Sport Rio Olympics 2016, with both Rafael Martin and Justin Hutchinson-Chatburn as Art Directors.
The work features a range of animals preparing for the Games before they transform into their heroic and spectacular human athlete counterparts. I created the environmental concepts and the finished matte paintings. It was a great project to work on.
