vivo, a leading technology brand is instilling boundless passion in aspiring filmmakers through the art of storytelling while also demonstrating how a smartphone can be used to produce the best of stories. The brand is encouraging creative minds to share short stories with interesting concepts under its campaign ‘Stories. Redefined.’
Widely known director, Hamza Lari has partnered with vivo under its X Series which is known to provide professional-grade cameras in hand. This interesting collaboration is said to empower users to make the best out of vivo’s leading technology, channel their creative talent and use the newly launched X Series smartphone for this filmmaking project.
vivo as a new-age brand continues to promote its smartphones as a tool for telling interesting stories, and the newest example comes from the partnership with the topline director Hamza Lari, who makes his directorial films with utmost precision, superior storytelling, unmatched creativity together with a personal touch for an emotional appeal.
As a storyteller, he became interested in delving into the brains of the younger generation and their perspectives on new-age storytelling. This short film project will be shot entirely on vivo’s latest X80 smartphone. It is a unique opportunity to take participants into Lari’s world through the lens of his vision. For him, the script is the foundation for any cinematic project. The director believes that music provides the much-needed emotion to a film, but the script still remains the primary aspect that should reflect novelty, something which has not been seen before.
The best selected short film, and the director’s boundless passion for uplifting others through the art of storytelling, will inspire and empower other young filmmakers to bring their own unique stories to life and add strength to their creativity.
Speaking about the filmmaking project partnership, Hamza Lari said, “I have always carried the ambition of sitting on the director’s chair to not just direct a script but read through emotions. Very grateful to vivo for giving me the opportunity to select from raw materials and mold a story into a masterpiece. This challenge will bring someone’s passion and vision to life. vivo has indeed democratized the art of visual storytelling with its amazing camera-centric smartphones. Plus, the X series smartphone would be fun to use in hand. This user-centric short film will be a deep personal story, but I feel it will give a message for other young minds out there to have the courage to express themselves and chase down their dreams.”

Redefined. campaign and are honored that we are having a chance to follow him throughout the campaign journey, which in many respects relates to the young minds.
