Whitehouse Post Cuts Stirring Portrait of Wunderkind Inventor for Intel
In an effort that’s equal parts awe-inspiring and uplifting, Intel recently teamed up with Houseblend Media and editorial company Whitehouse Post to bring us the story of Shubham Banerjee, a tech prodigy who at the age of 13 has reinvented how the blind read Braille with his printer device, Braigo.
As part of its “Meet the Makers” series, the new Intel short film takes us through the process of Banerjee’s creation, from his initial inspiration, to the makeshift elements that brought it to life, to how his Braille printer makes reading materials more accessible for the visually impaired. Directed by Houseblend Media’s Josh Soskin, Intel’s film features steady, methodical pacing and build-up courtesy of Whitehouse Post’s Zach Vandlik that ultimately drives the narrative of Banerjee’s fascinating tale, which shows how compassion, curiosity and creativity can coexist for the greater good.
