Computing Comes to Life in Episodic Campaign from Dell and Y&R New York

New spots use futuristic VFX to show how technology could make life easier

Computing can seem vague and impersonal. But a new series of ads for Dell by agency Y&R New York shows how it will continue to change our lives in subtle and powerful ways.


The 'Future Ready' campaign features a series of intertwining vignettes about Amy, a young girl getting a heart transplant. It builds off last year’s 'Beat Again,' where advanced visualisation technology helps a doctor save Amy’s life.




This time around, 'Night Before' shows Amy’s doctor traveling the night before a surgery, and how technology is transforming travel and hospitality. 'First Day Back' shows Amy’s return to school, and how technology changes education. 'Anthem,' to be released next week, will combine all three stories together.


The ads highlight things people don’t necessarily know about Dell, such as cloud computing and its ability to power big data. They show a just-barely futuristic world where the same technology that saved Amy makes little things simpler, like ordering sushi in a hotel room or knowing when the school bus is going to arrive.


The ads come with a serious Hollywood pedigree. They were directed by Henry Alex Rubin, known for landmark campaigns such as 'Whopper Freakout' for Burger King as well as the documentary 'Murderball.' They were shot by Janusz Kamiński, the Academy-award-winning cinematographer of 'Schindler’s List” and 'Saving Private Ryan.' Set design was by K.K. Barrett, production designer for films such as 'Her' and 'Being John Malkovich.'


The new installments in Amy’s story also feature the same actress that played her in 'Beat Again,' just eight months older.
