The title sequence has been developed by NRK’s Design and Visuals staff, with the aim of capturing the essence of the biathlon contest: The moment just before the athlete fires the decisive shot; the moment when everything could be won or everything lost. This is what biathlon is about – the ability to ski at the highest pace, and the next instance to control your breath and your nerves when everything is at stake.
The shooting of the title sequence was done in the forest near the ski resort Beitostølen. Temperatures were down to -18 degrees and the massive amounts of snow made the setting picture perfect. The characters were personified by skiers covered with led lights.
The music used in the Host Broadcaster transmissions has been composed especially for these championships and is used in title sequences, slow motion replays, track profile presentations and other production elements.
