This film shows the determination of Xu Yun. Since 2012 she's been eagerly applying to be one of the 35,000 Shanghai Marathon runners, but is yet to put on a bib. Despite her bad luck, Xu Yun won't let rejections letters stop her running.
In 2015 she was fed up of not getting a chance to run the marathon, so she ran the course anyway. She was unofficial runner number 35,001.
The Giant crumbling words were animated in C4D, rendered then tracked into the shots. I added stock footage to further emphasise the destruction.
