Continuing their groundbreaking collaboration on “The Truth Is Worth It” campaign for The New York Times, which took home 10 Lions at the 2019 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, including the prestigious Grand Prix in Film Craft, Wave Studios has partnered again with agency Droga5 on this latest piece titled “Long Fight.” 

Through photos of pioneering women athletes who seek pay equality in sports--including Billie Jean King--“Long Fight” is complemented by a tennis-themed soundscape. The sound design and mix are from Waves partner/creative director Aaron Reynolds and sound designer/mixer Jonny Platt.

The spot was edited by Akiko Iwakawa-Grieve of Rock Paper Scissors.

Music composers were Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans.
