Under Armour —
In 2016, Under Armour asked us to write a campaign that would overshadow the official sponsors of the Rio Olympic Games, 2016 and tell the world what they were all about. We wrote a campaign that was all about sacrifice and invisibility - centered around something we wrote down:
"It's what you do in the dark, that puts you in the light."
In this film we tell the story of Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time - the most decorated athlete across any sport. The film tells the story of a man and his sport, of solitude, invisibility and isolation. We spent months talking to Michael to build the story and worked with Martin de Thurah to bring the idea to life.

A tribute by Jonny Agar
Jonny Agar - para-athlete, remade the whole film in his own vision as a tribute to one of his heroes.
