Since the WBC is the largest body in this sport, it has had to adjust its regulations to make boxing between women official. Despite the enormous challenge of going against boxing
paradigms. Prejudices and a society that was not prepared to see a fight between women professionally. Now women head top-level billboards and fights that follow the viewer in a war
above the ring.

moments that can become a lifestyle.

FEMALE BOXING – PILOT – CHAPTER 1
SYNOPSIS:Times are changing and they are part of history.
New roles are established and the rules of the game change.
Throughout history, women have played different roles, as a result of changes in society. Today women actively participate in the
main economic, scientific, cultural and sports activities, spaces that were only open to men.
One of these activities is boxing and today women in boxing top big billboards. Although it is a sport where masculinity gains a lot
of territory, women have begun to conquer practices. Boxing is considered a sport of the most violent, rude and even for many it
should not be considered as such for those reasons.
In addition, many think that such practice is exclusively for men, a fact that is far from being correct and speaks more of the macho
world in which they live than of reality.
We will recount the history of the first women in boxing and how this sport has been consolidated little by little, despite the fact that
there had been fights and exhibitions of women’s boxing, it remained in a very low profile until the fight for the Gender equality
advanced, with London 2012 being when women’s boxing became an Olympic sport. The fight for the recognition of equality
against gender oppression is long and it has only recently been bearing its first fruits, but as in boxing this does not end until the
last round, and apparently the fight has just begun, the title at stake is that of champion and woman outside and inside the ring.
VISUAL AND SOUND PROPOSAL
● In boxing there are great stories and they also deserve to stop time to admire them, with narrative shots, plus the mix of a documentary
that follows their characters.
This content requires a 4K UHD capture process with a camera approved by the major streaming services to ensure a path of greater
commercial possibilities from the beginning.
This type of series offers you interesting places that deserve to be seen as a modern world but with history, a soft or medium contrast
optics are good, and in color correction saturate colors that are important to us at all times.
Much of each chapter has characters speaking to the camera, so in controlled situations, we will take advantage of the aesthetics of their
personal space so that they can give their points of view.
The aspect ratio would be 2.39.1 in combination with footage, they generate a big change for the viewer from the square to a wide and
long format, separating moments very well.
The movement and handling of light will always look for what is attached to documentary cinema, without losing sight of what a series of
this type looks for when it is commercialized.
● Regarding the sound proposal, we would like to propose independent artists and traditional music from each place and / or space to
generate for the viewer that closeness to space and time. At the same time, we will mix certain sounds that will give life to each moment
of the narrative.
● Camera equipment
● Film material and equipment insurance
● Administrative expenses
● Script Advisory
