QATAR National Day 2020
The commemoration of Qatar’s unification in 1878 – Qatar National Day is the biggest and one of the most important celebrations of the year. This special day is celebrated with great fanfare and reverently – with a colorful parade, a mesmerizing fireworks display lighting up Doha’s skyline. But most importantly this is a ceremony of Qatari national Identity – its history, values, traditions, and culture. We were invited to create a story, that would appeal to every, proud Qatari. The video is also a part of a wider mission – to reach the youngest generation, where using animation as a medium to do so is still rare and quite unique.
Under Michał Misińki’s direction – our CG and Sound team were able to create a moving painting – a visual journey through the remarkable history of Qatar. We dived deeply into the country’s story and its heritage to make sure we don’t miss even tiny detail in visuals and the narrative.
The film was published on all QND social media channels, national TV stations – Qatar TV, Alrayyan TV, Alkass, and on the Doha360 digital platform.
A big THANK YOU to the fantastic experts from Laddam Cultural Centre we got all the needed historical documents and references that allowed us to scrupulously build the story piece by piece.
A big THANK YOU to Tommy Zee for helping us to enframe the story by heroic music composition.
