Njoud Al-Kubaisi is a remarkable communicator and one of the region’s youngest sign language interpreters.
We were fortunate enough to work with this amazing 13- year-old on Qatar Financial Centre's TVC for Ramadan aimed at raising awareness about the challenges faced by the hearing-impaired and encouraging companies to integrate them within their workforce. Filmed entirely in Souq Waqif, we used the phantom camera to create super slow motion visuals that took us into a heightened reality.
The film became incredibly popular through the month of Ramadan, on tv channels and on social, garnering support from even the highest levels of the Royal family.
