Naija Odyssey Nominated at The British Arrows
Fresh from its Amazon Prime debut, the film made in collaboration with WhatsApp has been nominated at the prestigious British Arrows for Best Branded Film. 'Naija Odyssey' - directed by Nono Ayuso & Rodrigo Inada - chronicles the life and origins of NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The story moves between three different countries, Nigeria, Greece and Milwalkie, reflecting the rich cultural background Giannis had, and how it shaped his career entering into Basketball. The goal was to create an immersive, memory-like narrative, crossing seamlessly between spaces and ideas in beautiful visual storytelling.
I sound-designed the entire film, working with US Agency Translation, production house Partizan, composer Paulo Gallo and VFX house Mathematic to tell the epic tale.
