The NRL Rookie

The NRL Rookie

The NRL Rookie took the successful formula of 'The Recruit' and applied it to rugby; pitching fifteen hopeful players against each other in a series of challenges and matches for the chance at winning a coveted NRL contract.

The show called for a massive amount of graphics of various kinds including: supers, stats, scores, timers and screen replacements. Stylistically, the show was to build on the established look of 'The Recruit' but stand apart as a separate entity. Taking what we'd learnt producing 'The Recruit' and using that knowledge to create a flexible but consistent graphical system allowed us to deliver top quality graphics within the constraints of the demanding schedule and to stay abreast of the various revisions each episode went through.
