It’s been an absolute pleasure to show direct the LEC’s post-pandemic awakening in League of Legend’s „Land of the Midnight Sun“ for Jack Morton Germany, Battle Royal Studios, and Riot Games Germany.
For the opening ceremony of the League of Legends European Championship @lecofficial 2022 in Malmö, Battle Royal Studios designed an arena-sized kinetic stage, creative produced a show for a 16-piece orchestra, devised the entry for the 10 players, and staged the singer @cassyette (the voice of the @leagueoflegends season’s anthem “Awakened”).
Adding coolness and determination, we re-defined how RIOT’s European League celebrates their season, finalists, and fans.
Check out the entire Opening Ceremony here.
