If you are a fan of the online game Fortnite you will be familiar with the Llamas, which were introduced in version 3.3. Fortnite has recently taken over the world, with millions of people worldwide playing the game. Some people have made careers out of playing Fortnite, whilst others compete professionally in e-sport competitions. These competitions are popular, with some people even gambling on competitors. If you’re interested in finding out more about how to bet on esports, you could look into gambling websites to see if they offer the service.
However, in the lead up to the release of season 5, Fortnite teased their fans with pop-up promotions of Llamas that appeared in key, secret locations around Europe, one of which was central London.
Another llama toured the capital with its head protruding through the top of a London black cab and was photographed outside key landmarks around the city.
Now that the secret is out, we can reveal that Fortnite asked us to produce eight, 2-metre-high, 3-dimensional llamas, accurately recreating the llama character in the blockbuster game.
Working to tight deadlines
In our world we are used to tight timelines however, with this project it did run up to the wire.
At one point we had three, long-wheel based vehicles parked up outside our studio waiting to dispatch them to their European locations, as soon as the paint was dry!
Turn-around time from start to finish was less than three weeks.
The project was hugely successful generating a lot of interest and internet traffic, Fortnite was over the moon!
The llamas became so iconic that they were used as a centrepiece at the Cologne convention, Gamescom.
