24th Men's Handball Championship Anthem Song

JBM was commissioned to produce a full Anthem and supporting media strategy and campaign for the Qatar 2015 Handball championship. The concept was based on unity and collaborative/creative teamwork. Our objective was to select an artist from each country participating to the Championship. In total there were 24 countries, 24 artists singing one song. We produced this over the course of 3 months. The concept of the music video takes us on a journey around the world through the beating drum that is shared between countries and children passing on the rhythm of the championship, celebrating and sharing the moment to come in Qatar for the grand Opening ceremony where all the artists arrived to perform live in from of 17,000 people in the Lusail Stadium.
