To announce the arrival of its Marvel-themed smartphone, Oppo teamed up with Kode Media to create an action-packed film using VFX.

Marking the first time the two have worked together, Kode created a dedicated team to work remotely on the project, under its studio Kode Red.

Set in an unknown reality, the film sees two strangers' worlds collide. Due to the customisable always-on-display on their phone, they are catapulted into a fantasy world, transitioning between reality and a Marvel-inspired new dimension.

Unique features like Oppo's dual-view video mode are explored moments before a laser strike erupts around them. Running for their lives the film's protagonists are left with no choice but to jump from a war-torn city rooftop and into a terrifying free fall.
