Samsung has released a feature film, titled “Julian and His Magical Skates”, featuring an animated Julian Yee, a figure skater. The entire short film was produced with a Samsung Galaxy Note8, showcasing the concept “Do What You Can’t”, which is something Samsung prides itself for.

Pushing The Boundaries Of What A Phone Can Do

The figure skater happens to be Malaysia’s first national representative of the sport and will be competing at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. What makes “Julian and His Magical Skates” so special is the fact that it was produced with the Galaxy Note8. In addition, the feature film was fully recorded and illustrated with the device along with the S Pen. Mr Chan Woei Hern, Executive Director of Ensemble Worldwide Malaysia was commissioned to produce the film. According to him, scripting, sketching and creating the story was done entirely on the Galaxy Note8 with the S Pen.

Mr Yoonsoo Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics mentioned that the firm jumped at the opportunity to support Julian Yee. This is due to the fact that Samsung Malaysia felt that Julian is a prime candidate of what it means to “Do What You Can”. Julian managed to qualify for an Olympic sport which isn’t common in Malaysia, a real feat. Julian and His Magical Skates happens to pay tribute to the Olympian and tells Julian’s journey to the Winter Olympics.
