ASUS’ ‘Low Light Heroes’ short film salutes real bravehearts

Mumbai, Feb 24 (IANS) Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS on Wednesday released a 14-minute short film on YouTube that documents real life experiences of three people in distress who were helped at odd hours by local citizens.

The film exhibits how three people — entangled in various tricky situations in night hours — used the ASUS’ new low-light mode feature available on its smartphones to tackle the problems, the company said in a statement.

The film titled “Low Light Heroes,” features the real experiences of Pooja Banerjee, Ramesh Narang and Aditya Shah who, when confronted with emergencies in the middle of the night, receive aid from responsible citizens.

While Banerjee was helped by an honest cab driver, an auto driver helped Shah reach hospital while he was lying down on the side of the road after meeting with an accident. There was no one in the hospital when a nurse helped Narang’s wife while she was having labour pains.

“There are inspiring stories about unsung heroes all around us. Yet, most people are unaware about them,” Peter Chang, regional head, south Asia, ASUS India, said in a statement.

The concept of the film emerged from ASUS’ very own “PixelMaster” low-light mode feature which allows the camera to capture sharp images even in low-light conditions.

Like the camera mode, the gallant acts of the “Low Light Heroes” only come to light at night, when the rest of the city sleeps.
