Being a buddy is about sharing, inspiring and encouraging another person.
As good friends are hard to find, Best Buddies pairs-up friends-to-be, and in doing so breaks down barriers to communication for people with disabilities.
Our film, supported by Qatar Financial Centre, aimed to give Best Buddies Qatar a powerfully communicative and energising piece of content that we hope will resonate throughout Qatar and the Best Buddies International organisation.
The concept behind the film began with a very simple thought… There are no barriers to a good friendship.
And so, to emphasise this, we created a visual barrier using the motif of a split screen, through which our buddies communicate, engage, chat and have fun, despite the very present divide in the screen.
As they break through this barrier, they prove that great friendships conquer all.
A sweet and tender story of friends who were brought together by Best Buddies Tennessee.
