Castore is a premium high-performance men sportswear brand. Despite being relatively unknown and in a sector where mass market powerbrands rule, it is thriving. In 2019, they signed a sponsorship deal with Andy Murray. Together they set to create a new standard in tennis performance clothing and get global reach. They needed a film to raise Castore’s profile and announce the AMC launch.
“There is no opponent, only you”. Whatever the weather, regardless of career-ending injuries. Simple. ‘Better never stops’ is a core belief that Andy and Castore share. In their relentless pursuit of progress, they are uncompromising in pushing boundaries – be the training or the gear. We aimed to epitomise this in our film, capturing a ‘fly on the wall’ viewpoint of Andy’s gutsy training routine.
There is a group of sportsmen, who the superbrands aren’t really cutting through.
30-50 years old, in professional jobs, working long hours, with good disposable income and who take their training seriously. They believe high-tech gear can help them perform better. The brands they respect the most, aren’t flashy. They share their ethos and have a certain humility.
WHERE IT RAN AND HOW LONG
The film launched the AMC range on 18 November 2019 on Castore website, in their pop-up store in London. This coincided with the start of the Davis Cup in Madrid.
