Ogilvy, Director Armando Bo Team On “Lifeline” For Qualcomm
This action-packed, lightly branded short film titled Lifeline, from Ogilvy & Mather for client Qualcomm, stars Olivia Munn (Magic Mike, The Newsroom, New Girl) and Leehom Wang (the “Justin Bieber” of China).
Wang stars as Kai who sets out to rescue his missing girlfriend (Munn) with the help of Qualcomm mobile device technology. This entertainment piece serves to highlight the power of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 mobile processor. The majority of the film is shot in Mandarin with English subtitles as a way to appeal to and drive awareness of the technology within the Chinese market, among a larger global audience.
Armando Bo (an Original Screenplay Oscar winner for Birdman) directed the 30-minute online film via Anonymous Content.
