Dress Code's master storytellers' latest passion project shows both the loneliness and exhilaration that noted goalkeeper Robert Primrose Wilson experienced for Arsenal from 1963 to 1973.
Brad Edelstein, EP at Dress Code in New York: “As true fans of the game, we were inspired by a fascinating radio interview with Bob Wilson in which he spoke openly about his struggle with the pressures and fears that surround him before each game – It resonated on different levels.
“When you take a step back and take sport out of the equation, we all have these feelings or inner fears when we feel like we have to work at the highest level.
“Bob's story is a call to all of those who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders and who are expected to do their craft flawlessly, and that's what we wanted to imagine.
“One of the biggest challenges in developing one of our passion pieces is simply finding the time. As a busy creative studio, these projects can easily fall by the wayside.
“We strive to schedule hours between our paid projects or wherever we can within the work day. We do our best to keep things moving, even if it's only a few inches, but the most important thing is that we maintain the creative integrity of the entire piece, no matter how long it takes.
“In this case, it took us a little more than three years from concept to frame lock. We are currently working on some ideas for our next Passion Piece! "
