For us at Dona Ana Films & Multimedia, the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil was much more than a 32-day tournament. For us, it was several years of crisscrossing a continental-sized country filming host cities' preparations, countless press conferences, and all the other joys and controversies that surrounded the tournament. This video is a summary of everything we filmed, from the cities' preparations for the tournament, to the World Cup draw, to Germany winning the World Cup.
In the past year, a lot has changed in the world of football. The 2014 World Cup manager for Brazil, Luiz Felipe Scolari, resigned after the Brazilian national team lost 7-1 in the semi-final to Germany, one of the worst losses in FIFA World Cup history, which left the host nation bruised and apathetic about the national team.
FIFA itself is now embroiled in its worst corruption scandal ever. Several of the FIFA officials in this video are being investigated by the FBI for racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering, like former CBF president José Maria Marin who is currently in prison in Zurich. And, the biggest change of all, FIFA's President, Sepp Blatter, has resigned from his post.
After a successful 2010 and 2014 Street Child World Cup, UK-based NGO Street Child United will hold the first-ever Street Child Games in March 2016.

Going to enjoy carnival this year? Clean up your garbage.
Help the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro (and the rest of Brazil) keep its natural beauty. If you drink or party, put you garbage in the bin, and help keep the streets and beaches clean. This was a voluntary project.
2014 will no doubt be a busy year for all of those in Brazil. With the FIFA World Cup happening in June and July, and with a presidential election a few months after that, over the next 12 months there's going to be a lot of attention focused on Latin America's largest nation.
At Dona Ana Films & Multimedia, we'd like to wish everyone a happy 2014. Here is a little taste test of what the new year's celebrations looked like at on Rio de Janeiro's famed Copacabana beach. Looking forward to seeing you in Brazil this year!
