Brief

Context

Pens were created to help men draw and write. They are an extension of our fingers and they exist to connect a man’s spirit to his means of expression, in this case paper. Today, we tend not to write on paper but on screens. A stylus is much more precise than a finger when using a touch screen device, enabling the user to achieve much more. Samsung has revolutionized the smart stylus for its “Note” products and invented the S-Pen. It is an input tool that provides a similar feel to an actual pen: with the S-Pen, it is so easy to express yourself and be creative. For instance, you could paint a digital masterpiece on the screen, or handwrite your e-mails to give them a stronger sense of self-expression. The S-Pen encourages your creativity in a very magical way!

Sadly the magic of the S-Pen remains unknown for many potential users. We would like your help to show them the magic of the tool and to convince people that, once fully mastered, the S-Pen creates amazing new experiences!

Creative Challenge

Create a powerful, engaging story that shows how the magical S-Pen opens up a new world of possibilities and personal expression when used with your Samsung device.

Do not make a TV commercial or a product demo; focus on the emotional journey that can be unlocked by the S-Pen! But please pick at least one of these features and show it in your video:

  • Air Command
  • Action Memo
  • Pen Window
  • S-Finder
  • Scrapbook
  • New Multi – Window  

Your video or animation should make people share it with their friends, intrigue them and make them want to try the S-Pen.

TIPS:

We are giving you an example to help you understand what we expect. Please do not copy it in your submission as it will be rejected.

For example, you could create a story about someone who is taking pictures in a wintery city. Everything looks grey, sad and cold; he wants to add a bit of joy to the images because inside, he feels really happy. Using his S-Pen, he colors the bare leafless trees green and changes the sky from white to blue. He adds smiles to people’s faces and transforms the pavement into a beach. All of this is possible thanks to his S-Pen as it allows him to put his personal touch on everything he captures in a photograph!
