About the Work

To celebrate skateboarding’s debut at the 2021 Summer Games in Tokyo, we launched “Skate Nation Ghana”. The short film follows the story of Ghana’s burgeoning skateboarding scene—showing how Joshua Odamtten, (one of Accra’s first skaters), and community organizer, Sandy Alibo used Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook to build a community and a culture that now influences skaters around the globe. From strategy to research, creative to production, making “Skate Nation Ghana” come alive was a monumental effort across all departments. Working with a trio of upcoming directors, we turned the real story of real people into a two-minute short film – shot on real locations – that feels more like a movie trailer than an ad, and introduced Ghanaian skate culture to the world during the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.
