if Nike did an ad like this for Serena, it would be an hour long ad:tape: (grew up in compton - beads falling off - first us open title - dominating - injured - got fat- injured - retired - the hand - Mcdonalds - got fatter - lack of motivation - acting career goes south - wins a slam - failed fashion designer - ankle - thumb - knee - party with Sveta - tries to get fit - lucky shots - bitch - us open champ 08)

Wow way to shit on a nice thread.

In fact you werent too wrong - Rees would be about an hour because of her amazing life. Anyone who calls Ree fat is just an idiot.

^ serena's would've been more full all her achievements, wouldve been impossible to show anything else in that hour.

This is a decent advertisement too ,I guess..

How did you guys choose which athletes to profile in the films?
The "Here I Am" campaign began when Nike made a request for us to create something around the female athletes known as Young Guns, which are, with the exception of Sharapova, young and unknown, up and coming European athletes. We created the Here I Am book, which featured 22 athletes and their stories of confidence, each illustrated in a unique way to represent their individual paths. Then for the films, we selected five of the 22. I was actually hesitant to use Sharapova because this was supposed to be about the unknowns. But we wanted to do something anyway that even though she is a world-class athlete, there was something in her story that everyone could relate to.


For example, for the Sharapova one we wanted it to be about her growing up so we drew some inspiration from the work of Eric Carle, who does these watercolor kids books like The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Ayse (Altinok) had the idea that Maria always be blue, while everything standing in her way was red, then when (director) Sophie (Gateau) got the stuff that Ayse (Altinok) had done here, she took the ideas further and the finished film is the result. The idea was really to get the directors to have fun and get crazy with it.

It's nice but I guess hard to follow for a non tennis fan
