The NBA short entitled “Ball In The New Normal” showcases the Philippines as a basketball nation. The docu follows a community of Filipino athletes who fueled their love for the game amidst the challenges during the nationwide lockdown enforced last year to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The film shot entirely with the Vivo x50 pro smartphone, highlights the country’s finest basketball players and fans, including actor and long-time NBA fan Khalil Ramos, professional basketball player L.A. Tenorio, National Wheelchair Basketball coach Vernon Perea, and college basketball player Christina Dimaunahan.

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only awards program to recognize innovation in business throughout the entire Asia-Pacific region.
