BASF & Filmaka present: Recharge yourself!
By 2025, our innovations in battery materials aim to reduce the charging time to 15 minutes - four times faster than today. We have partnered with Filmaka, a global creative platform for aspiring filmmakers, to show us how people might recharge themselves in those 15 minutes.
The brief to aspiring filmmakers was simple: In 2025, when it only takes 15 minutes to recharge your car, what would you do to recharge yourself? Entrants had to send in their scripts for an original short film based on this question. Filmmakers from around the world applied and out of 100 submissions, three winners each received a production budget to produce and deliver their short film in just three weeks.
I liked the story “The Meaning of Life” as it shows us what innovations can give us back. We never think about how much of these developments are impacting our life, but suddenly we realize that there is a great value. At BASF battery materials we are in a very innovative environment where we try every day to improve the final product, to have a benefit for everyone at the end. And if it is only 15 minutes to do things which are important to us. I also can personally relate to the story. As a father of a daughter full of energy, the story inspires me to do a video log for her when I have some spare time.”
