Valletta 2018 needed a short film to introduce their re-branding campaign. The video was required to present the foundation’s message: Dream, Create, Celebrate.
Valletta is without a doubt the most photographed city on the Maltese islands. This created an opportunity to look—or rather listen—to Valletta from a new angle. We listened carefully, composing an original soundtrack with the help of musicians from a variety of disciplines and genres. Collaborating with saxophone players, metal guitarists and indie vocalists, we created a first-of-its-kind version of the Maltese National Anthem.
The public premiere of this film blurred the lines between fiction and reality to delight audiences at a live musical event. The final scene of the video was “complete” when the central character surprised viewers by appearing on stage for a live musical performance. Valletta is My Orchestra won “Best Direction” at the 2016 Film, Art Tourism Festival in Poland.
