The Journey tells the story of a refugee woman who flees her home to escape conflict and violence. From the streets of her village to the starting line of the track, her journey is told through shots of her legs. Created in collaboration with two IOC Refugee Athlete Scholarship holders, The Journey highlighted the power of sport to bring hope and change for all those forced to flee.
What did the judges have to say?
"The Journey is a wonderfully crafted piece of sound design. It has no music, yet succeeds in conveying a lot of emotion despite never seeing the protagonists face as they run through war torn land. By using the intimacy of foley, breath, well chosen sfx, atmospheres and tonal sound design, the viewer is transported to a visceral kind of experience."Abby Sie, Sound Supervisor & Sound Designer, Song Zu
"This piece of work is so well-scripted, well-directed and brilliantly shot. Such a well-told piece. I loved it!"Monalisa Mukherji, Founder & Executive Producer, Little Lamb Films
"Outstanding level of craft, hand-in-hand with the visuals and the sound design that brought every footstep to life like never before."Shereen Mostafa, Head of A/V Production, Leo Burnett Dubai
