Richie McCaw Chasing Great

Richie McCaw Chasing Great

Taking on a film about Richie McCaw, a New Zealand national treasure and perhaps the best rugby player of all time, is no small feat.

The team at Cause+FX worked closely with Charlie McClellan to create flashback moments to give insight into the pressures and challenges faced by the great All Black. These tasks included building and populating rugby stadiums and effects to highlight the stresses that the team was facing at that time. This helped documentary filmmakers Michelle Walshe and Justin Pemberton to bring to life this ‘story of how a shy farm boy went on to be a sporting legend and hero to a nation.’
