General Electric (GE) launched an online campaign in November for the Chinese market titled ‘Future Folklore’. It’s aim was to demonstrate how GE’s “Innovative solutions” can help address China’s most pressing environmental and healthcare challenges as the country grows.
Inspired by Chinese fables, GE created three really slick animation films (below) to show how stories of the past can inspire change for the future. Instead of selling fantasy and unachievable aspiration goals, the animations showcases how using GE’s technology and innovation can turn fantasy into a reality for the betterment of the world.
The ‘Future Folklore’ campaign is a call-to-action for Chinese businesses and individuals to step up, use their imagination combined with technology, and find a solution that will write the so-called “future folklore”. The animations are part of GE’s wider ‘Ecoimagination’ and ‘Healthymagination’ campaigns.
