Sky has created a new AI-assisted campaign to promote its exclusive TV broadcast of the Olympic Games Paris 2024, with support from creative partner, DDB Group Aotearoa.

 

Called From the Streets of Paris, the campaign reimagines Paris and the Olympics in the style of 19th century impressionism using generative AI techniques.

Dan Kelly, chief customer officer for Sky, said the campaign was designed to get New Zealanders thinking about the Olympics in a different way: “Every four years, the Olympics brings our country to halt. This year, the jaw-dropping locations of the Games will also stop us in our tracks, from beach volleyball by the Eiffel Tower, to equestrian at the Chateau de Versailles.

“The campaign captures your attention by bringing together the famous Impressionist style of painting and Olympians in action – including some New Zealand athletes, thanks to our partnership with the New Zealand Olympic Committee.

“The team at Sky are proud to be bringing Paris 2024 to New Zealanders and this campaign will get sports fans around the country excited for the spectacle of the Olympic Games.”

Says Matty Burton, group chief creative officer, DDB Aotearoa: “For centuries, humans have been obsessed with the streets of Paris, which feature in some of the world’s most famous artworks, especially those from the French impressionists such as Paul Cézanne.

“Using AI for the visual style, generative fill and animation, we have created a campaign for Sky that presents Paris 2024 in an entirely unique way. This campaign draws on the inspiration of the past with the technology of the future.”
