With two crews, one using an Element Technica Pulsar rig and the other a Steadycam, CAN filmed a wide variety of footage around the Wimbledon grounds. Provided with complete access to the club, CAN was able to film in some of the club’s most famous locations such as Centre Court and Henman Hill and also in the more exclusive areas such as the Walk of Champions and the Trophy Room.

The finished trailer will mix 3D footage of the club with milestones in Wimbledon history, building an intimate picture of the club preparing for the 2011 Championships and its next important milestone, the first Wimbledon Championships to be broadcast in 3D.

With an enviable track record of filming major sporting events in 3D, CAN is more than delighted to be able to add Wimbledon to the CAN portfolio.
