Intel Corporation and W Hotels Worldwide launched in August “Four Stories,” an innovative screenplay competition curated by acclaimed film director and screenwriter Roman Coppola and his award-winning production company, The Directors Bureau. “Four Stories” is the first collaboration from The Ultrabook Experience, a new initiative from Intel that features collaborations with innovative brands, emerging and established artists, and designers and entertainers that use the Intel-inspired Ultrabook devices to do extraordinary things.
After receiving nearly 1000 scripts by the month of September, the judges have decided on four winning scripts. Each script has been developed and transformed into 10-minute shorts inspired by the intense energy of the global jet-setter.
“Four Stories” premiered at red carpet events in W London, W Honk Kong, W Dubai, and W Hollywood, and is broadcasted on The Ultrabook Experience website, whotels.com, the W brand’s social media channels and W Vision in-room entertainment channel.
