WILLIE BEAMEN and the Agence Nationale du Sport (National Sports Agency) have collaborated to highlight a relationship that is all too often unknown to the general public.


ANS (national sports agency) wanted to pay tribute to the relationship between coaches and their athletes. WILLIE BEAMEN imagined and created a series of micro-documentaries: ‘Pour un champion” ("For a champion"). This series focuses on the key people who are too often in the shadow of the athletes: the coaches.


"For a Champion", a series that tells the story of these relationships with a 'human' approach: handheld camera, close-up shots of faces, capturing moments of everyday life supported by a voice-over, which is the athlete’s one.
A 'discreet' way of filming that leaves room for real interactions/emotions between the athlete and the person accompanying him/her.
