ARUP - Committed To The Long Run: Our Story


Create inspirational videos that focus on the corporate and human aspects of the major events for host cities, focusing on the individuals, community, and city.

Helping potential Host Cities realise the long term sustainable benefits of hosting major events through Arup’s experience and expertise. 



The brief was to create a series of films to satisfy the above brief, working from the initial creative concept, research & planning, field production & post-production, to the final delivery. 

Using the Lima 2019 Games as a case study, we wanted to create a concept that quickly communicated the grassroots and broader impact of large scale events to a global audience. Part of this challenge was to tell the stories of the different stakeholders including the host (Lima 2019) and the citizens of Peru, Arup (the client), and the Athletes themselves in both the Pan American and ParaPan American Games. The mission was to show how they worked together as a team to achieve their dream.  

Not only did we want to demonstrate the tangible impact but also, using fact and sporting metaphor. Illustrating the commitment and sacrifices made by these stakeholders to achieve something genuinely spectacular within an almost impossible timeframe was vital, but ultimately, how knowledge and experience can pass onto the next generation of pioneers: creating a legacy. 

It was this demonstration of human endeavour and the strength of the individual and collective character that inspired the campaign slogan “Committed to the Long Run”.
