Helping Under Armour Create Its First AI Video Campaign

Anthony Joshua is determined to be a third time World Champion, and that dream is made today, with the battle in front of him. Wes Walker's innovative new film promotes Under Armour’s just-renewed partnership with heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua, who will have one of the biggest fights of his career against Francis Ngannou in March 2024. The theme of fading, time and sand reflects Johnson’s career & legacy – as does the iconic location of the fight in Saudi Arabia.

To deliver on the desired visual fidelity, we took a mixed media production approach powered by AI – combining AI, CG, and licensed footage.

This project was conceptualized and executed in four weeks, as AI allowed us to move faster than a typical production.  Under Armour and Tool worked closely with Joshua’s team every step of the way to maintain real-time approvals for the work, including approval of the AI generated VO font that Tool created after training on the tonality of Anthony's voice.

The film will debut as part of the announcement that Joshua Anthony has re-upped his partnership with Under Armour.

"Joshua is such a unique, talented fighter that we wanted to create a film as timeless as his abilities. AI offered us a powerful new tool to craft stunning visuals faster than traditional shoots and have limitless iterations to help push our creativity forward. The end result is an epic story, one that speaks to Joshua’s mentality, intense dedication to the sport, and the unique bond between him and Under Armour as a brand."
