Okkur Collective

In 2015, Toronto was proud host to the Pan Am and ParaPan Games and NOMAD was there to tell the story. We were hired by 4U2C to produce media for the opening and closing ceremonies' stage and CBC TV broadcast. While we had seasoned NOMADS like Parafilms & Okkur on the field to capture the games and render inspiring recaps and videos boasting the great city of Toronto, the film that still resonates the most is Journey of Courage, the story of Canadian veterans, Sgt. Steve Daniel and Dominic Larocque. This film played on the final leg of the Parapan Am torch relay as the soldiers carried the flame into the stadium. It was like these athletes' lives, all of their hardships and achievements had led them to this moment. I find it a true privilege to meet such inspiring people, people that have made life choices so different than mine, but with whom I am given a special access, allowed to reach for their essence, to expose their courage for all to see.
