Sound Designer


For this design, the director and I focused on the bond of a team. A team that is tightly bound is similar to a family or a tribe. Each person shares in each other struggles and works together to overcome them. For this design we took inspiration from a Haka, which is a Maori ceremonial dance performed for special occasions but is often seen in modern day being preformed at the beginning or end of Rugby or soccer matches.

Here is the video of the particular Haka we got inspiration from. This Haka was performed in Ireland by the New Zealand team at the  Women's Rugby World Cup in 2017.
