'Do bigger things' is the global proposition for the Galaxy Note8, so it made the most sense to us that we follow and film real professionals using Note8 to do bigger things in their business.
The first film – Aiming Higher – follows the Sales Director of a large FinTech company as he prepares his pitch to an important new client, using the Note8 to stay connected with colleagues and ready the presentation:
'Discovering epic' follows a film location scout who is constantly on the road in remote locations and using Note8 to solve problems and communicate with the production team, as well as keeping him connected with his family when he is far from home:
According to local folklore (which is taken very seriously in Iceland) actual trolls dwell in the wild hills and specific boulders dotted around the valleys are the homes of elves. We were warned not to touch or take anything and that any kind of disrespect shown to the boulders would upset the elves and bring us very bad luck. We touched nothing.
We used a drone camera rig that can travel at up to 50mph and record in 4K to film the dramatic scenery and capture views that, not too long ago, would have required us to hire a helicopter to accomplish.
The drone can travel to a distance of 7km away from the controller and reach a maximum height of 2km, so we couldn’t even see it when we were filming overhead shots of the glacier and the modified Nissan Landcruiser (which we lovingly nicknamed ‘Big Red’) that we used as the ‘hero vehicle’ in our film.
