With just under a month to go until the 2016 Rio Olympic games begin, we were asked to film a behind the scenes project for Harpers Bazaar & Team GB. We traveled all across the UK over the course of two weeks and met at the training facilities of some of the Team GB’s star female athletes. As well as filming them training, we asked them about their ambitions, emotions and the journey that lies ahead, while capturing photographer Harry Cory Wright at work creating the stills imagery that would appear in the August issue of the magazine.
This film will also be going on to the Team GB website in a section where members of the public can leave messages of support to the athletes. As you hear in the film, the support from the public does mean an awful lot to the competitors and it’s highly appreciated.
