This film is a call to action to promote the Nigerian leg of Battle of the Year, a global dance competition. It's a film about what it takes to show up, show yourself, and battle for your dreams.

“… a love for human interaction is at the heart of what we do…we’re drawn to the complexities of working out intimate personal narratives, exploring the domino effects of our actions, and constantly rethinking the visual language with which to craft our stories…” Kim fell in love with performance and storytelling as a teenager while working as a theatre usher in Cape Town. He began his professional career as a fashion photographer, eventually graduating to film where he could combine his love of imagery with the intimacy of human performance. In 1998 Kim founded Egg Films, his first production company, and in the following years developed a solid local and International clientele. In 2014 he launched 03:07. Since its inception, 03:07 has been awarded Production Company of the Year 2018 & 2020 by Ciclope Africa, and was awarded Production Company of the year at Loeries 2019. His attention to detail and concept has led to him being consistently featured at award shows around the world, such as Cannes, Clios, LIA’S, Ciclope, D&AD, The One Show, and many more. Topsy’s ‘Selinah’ won South Africa’s first Grand LIA at the London International Advertising Awards, as well as Cannes Gold and numerous other international awards.
