What is a storyboard?

A film storyboard is essentially a large comic of a film (or some section of the film) produced beforehand to help visualize the scenes. Often storyboards include arrows or instructions that indicate movement.

If you wish to participate by proposing a storyboard, it should contain at least 15 images.


What if the things that make your life easy were always with you?


Life would be so easy and fun if we could always have, close to us, the things we need when we need them. Imagine going for a job interview with a stained shirt. Wouldn't it be great if your washing machine and dryer could instantly appear by magic, for a quick "wash and wear"? Imagine spilling your food on the carpet at your first "meet the parents" dinner in your girlfriend's home. Wouldn’t it be great if your trusted vacuum-cleaner could appear automatically so that you could clean up the mess?

LG is launching Kompressor Follow Me™, the world’s first vacuum cleaner which always follows you like a pet, automatically.

You can see it in action, in the player of the summary page. It works thanks to a world's first technology where 3 receiving sensors located on the vacuum follow the movement of a transmitting sensor on the handle. Always there when you need it, automatically so that cleaning becomes effortless. Life is good.


Stretch your imagination and show us how your daily life could be transformed if the things that make your life easy were always following you, ready to help you whenever you need them.

Show us how it would feel and bring this magic to life!

You can submit videos, animations or storyboards.

Winning Criteria:

We will select entries that best communicate the emotions that you feel when the things that make your life easy are always here with you, to help you. We are looking for entertaining videos or stories. Your videos should be of good quality to win, as we will use them online to support the launch of the LG Kompressor Follow Me™.

Winning videos will be considered for a potential submission to the Cannes Lions Award at the Cannes Lions 59th Festival of Creativity 17-23 June 2012.
