Every once in awhile, a project is begging to be made.
All over the city, there are public areas called "Olympic Villages". Sort of a public park meets YMCA. Prior to the Olympics, Nike refreshed the facilities in many of the key villages, and implemented programming for local kids coming in to the only safe haven in their neighborhood outside of their homes.
After a few trips down to Brazil, we had a mountain of footage and a few rough cuts for a series of videos to be made. They fulfilled the brief, but lacked the essence of what these places felt like. One night, I sat down and cut this together. Every once in awhile, an edit flows together with very little effort.
I think they ended up using this piece more than the original series of videos we were hired to make.
