Diane Russo’s new film ‘Be True’ for Nike tells an uplifting story, as queer athlete Susie Poore discusses her personal journey from childhood to the present day. WNBA basketballer Elena Delle Donne, whose story was an inspiration to Poore, also features in the film — which unfolds across a series of training scenes on the basketball courts.

We helped bring the edit to life through our sound design work, which amplifies the sense of weight, exhaustion and exhilaration alluded to in the voiceover. Lighter atmospheric sounds, meanwhile, heighten the emotional impact of Poore’s story — bringing clarity and relief as she describes the moment she could finally “just breathe”.
