Jeremy W. was approached by Bert Marcus Productions to add his distinc design and directorial style to their documentary film, CHAMPS. Working in collaboration with the film’s director and producer, Jeremy helped develop design language and direct original content for their film.

︎ Re-enactments

Jeremy directed a series of dramatic re-enactments centered around the life experiences of Mike Tyson, Bernard Hopkins, and Evander Holyfield in their youth. Each sequences recreated a deeply personal moment in their lives and needed to be treated with the utmost sensitivity and respect. Jeremy was able to merge his distinct design sensibilities and viscerally retell their stories.

︎ VFX

CHAMPS dives into the dark underbelly of the Boxing industry. The film sheds light on the mistreatment and exploitation of even it's most famous athletes. Jeremy W. drove these gritty points home in a series of VFX vignettes using motion control, Phantom photography, and CGI techniques.

︎ Motion Graphics

Jeremy W. took on the challenge of taking the otherwise disparate elements that often are collected in a documentary and married them together into a unified visual experience. Jeremy developed this with BMP to give the film a brand it could call it’s own.
