Google has teased a forthcoming video starring award-winning model Adwoa Aboah.

The short film was shot on the Pixel 2, Google’s latest smartphone, and makes use of the camera’s image-stabilisation and low-light technology.

The film layers footage from 20 different Pixel 2 XLs, and one shot involved the use of a 360 degree shooting rig.

The video supports Google’s ‘Ask More’ campaign, which “aims to challenge people to think about what it means to ask more of themselves, and also of others”.

Aboah’s chosen themes for her video include “image and what counts as normal; self-confidence, the impact of role models and deciding what’s acceptable”.

Speaking about the project, Aboah said: “Partnering with Google to support their message of ‘Ask More’ is a unique opportunity to challenge people to think about what it means to ask more of themselves, and also of others.

“It also connects with the messaging surrounding Gurls Talk – continuing the dialogue around open communication without stigma, censorship, and judgement.

“The partnership and film allowed a genuine and clear message to be the focus; ask questions and always challenge.”

The video has been made in collaboration with filmmaker Rollo Jackson, who said: “Quite simply, I want to visualise [Aboah’s] questions in the most expressive, exciting and provocative way.”

​Aboah was recently featured on the cover of Vogue, in the first issue from new editor Edward Enninful. She is also the founder of Gurls Talk, a site which discusses mental health, sex, and social media.

The full video is due to arrive shortly.
