“By using technology in an innovative way, as a service to happiness, we were able to bring together two segments of the community who rarely interact,” said Leonardo O’Grady, ASEAN director of integrated marketing communications,
Eugene Cheong, chief creative officer of Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific, added, “This project is exciting because it touches on a universal social tension in modern society – the disconnect between guest workers and the local residents of the places that have become their home away from home. Construction workers, in particular, tend to be ‘invisible’ as they are working in areas that are not accessible to the average person. So in order to appreciate them, we first need to see them. This is what this video allows us to do.”
