Leo Burnett, Director Sam Pilling Create The Future For Samsung
Samsung’s mission to see the world as it could be, instead of accepting the limits of today, is reflected in this spot where the company’s developing technology is being used to do wondrous things, including a mobile device which allows a couple to see their unborn infant via ultrasound, and a tattoo artist who remotely creates an intricate design on a young woman. Sam Pilling of Pulse Films directed for Leo Burnett, Chicago.
Helping to drive this anthem piece is a classic tune. Leo Burnett, in collaboration with music house Human, reintroduces essential recording of “Que Será Será” to a new audience by remixing it with booming bass and hi-hats underneath. The team played with multiple genres of the classic song but creative instincts led them back to the magical charm of Doris Day accompanied by Frank De Vol and his orchestra. Day’s voice brings joy to the characters singing along.
