Ernest’s comment: “Matthew Swanepoel’s edit gives fluidity to the relationship of car and athlete, invoking the same emotion as if it was Wayde’s 400m race. The clever use of archive footage and well-timed music helps portray a parallel story of Wayde’s life adding an extra dynamic to the spot. The timing and tempo of the shot selections are slick and shows the number of hours and dedication to this piece. Congratulations to all involved, on a beautiful piece of work.”
