vivo Joined Hands with Sabah Tourism Board to Support Local Tourism in Sabah with Short Film “Visual Xplorer”

 vivo Malaysia, in collaboration with Sabah Tourism Board, released a short film titled Visual Xplorer to document the people, their rich culture and the scenic landscapes of the state of Sabah, to showcase the true essence of the Land Below the Wind to the world. The 1 minute 27 seconds film is documented using the vivo X70 Pro, the professional photography flagship smartphone with advanced mobile imaging technology co-engineered with ZEISS.

Directed by local film director Brian Christie, the film intends to take viewers on a journey to explore Sabah through various tropes of culture, tribes, food, festivities and nature. Using the vivo X70 Pro that comes with camera lens co-engineered with ZEISS T* Coating and the Enhanced Ultra-sensing Gimbal Camera, the film demonstrates the filming capabilities of the device, while capturing moments and memories unheard of from the rich land of Sabah.

“At vivo, we believe in capturing and sharing the joy of humanity through the beautiful moments of people and nature. I am glad we can tell the story of Sabah together with Sabah Tourism Board and looking forward to more explorations in the future. The vivo X70 Pro’s mobile photography capabilities can capture Sabah in great detail to immortalise the beautiful landscape and culture of Sabah,” said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer of vivo Malaysia. 

Sabah is a land rich with its own unique biodiversity and culture. From a great array of travel options to the friendly hospitality of the locals, the state is full of exciting stories waiting to be told. The video captures some of Sabah’s beautiful places such as Cultural Village, Mantanani Island and Sepilok rainforest Discovery Centre while highlighting local activities.

“We are happy to work together with vivo on this meaningful project to share the beauty of Sabah. Sabah is a beautiful land, full of life and landscapes with hidden gems waiting to be explored. Through our partnership, we are able to display Sabah’s beauty to the world. It is impressive to see how it was all captured on the vivo X70 Pro, showing Sabah’s true beauty and heritage with ease and professionally. We hope that through the film, people will appreciate Sabah better and create a bigger opportunity to shine Sabah’s story to the world,” said Noredah Othman, Chief Executive Officer of Sabah Tourism Board.
