Abteen Bagheri Directs "More of Us" For Samsung, Wieden+Kennedy
This new film is part of a campaign celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first Samsung Galaxy phone.
Abteen Bagheri of Somesuch directed this centerpiece spot, “More of Us,” for agency Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore. The piece operates on the belief that a world made by “more of us” is more interesting.
The :60 heralds the diverse lifestyles that make up the Galaxy community. In the ad, Samsung showcases how Galaxy fans from all walks of life use its products to interact with the world around them. You can watch how creators are using Samsung’s innovative tools in the real world, including two filmmakers using the Galaxy S10’s prograde camera and the Galaxy Note10’s native video editing app to capture epic footage, a pro gamer enjoying immersive AR gaming on the Galaxy Note10 5G, a rising social media star capturing quick video content on the Galaxy A50, a young entrepreneur using the all-new Galaxy Fold on the go, and more.
