The films can be viewed at: www.youtube.com/fourstories.

 

Intel and W Hotels embarked upon "Four Stories" to support rising visionaries in filmmaking and showcase their work to a global audience. The four winning scripts, inspired by the intense energy of the global jet-setter and the mobility of the Intel Ultrabook, were chosen from nearly 1,000 submissions from aspiring filmmakers around the world and developed into 10-minute short films. Roman Coppola and his production company, The Directors Bureau, matched the four winning scripts with some of today's most talented young directors and actors to bring the screenwriters' visions to life. The resulting four original screenplays were filmed on location at W Hotels across the globe including W Washington D.C., W Doha Hotel & Residences, W Retreat & Spa Maldives, and W Mexico City, and feature the Intel-inspired Ultrabook.

 

"Intel is collaborating with innovators in travel, film, business, fashion and design to highlight amazing computing experiences created by the Ultrabook. Through the Four Stories collaboration with W Hotels, Intel is supporting and inspiring the next generation of artists and visionaries," said Johan Jervoe, Intel's vice president and director of Partner Marketing. "Each of the Four Stories films showcased the sleek mobility of the Ultrabook as inspiration for innovative filmmaking and storytelling, further merging creative art with technology."

 

Four Stories judge and executive producer Roman Coppola co-wrote and directed a fifth short film, "Die Again, Undead One," an intergalactic vampire tale, starring Jason Schwartzman and Margarita Kallas, which was shot on location at W Hollywood.

 

"Four Stories is about encouraging emerging talent in filmmaking," said Roman Coppola. "This collaboration supports a new generation of screenwriters, actors and directors showcase their work on a global level."

 

"As a global design powerhouse, W Hotels continues to identify and support rising visionaries in design, music, fashion and film," added Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, The Luxury Collection & W Hotels Worldwide. "Through our partnership with Intel, Four Stories seeks to celebrate the modern day jetsetter, the type of traveler who frequents W Hotels, while showcasing some of W's most glamorous award-winning properties around the globe."

 

After careful review from a panel of judges that included Coppola and other prominent industry leaders, the winning honors were awarded to:

 

Amy Jacobowitz from Los Angeles, whose screenplay was developed into "Modern/Love," filmed at W Doha with director Lee Toland Krieger and actors Robert Schwartzman and Naomi Scott.

Ben Saveg from Brooklyn, N.Y., whose screenplay was developed into "¡El Tonto!" filmed at W Mexico City with director Lake Bell and actor Kyle Mooney.

Kahlil Joseph from Los Angeles, who wrote and directed "The Mirror Between Us," filmed at  W Retreat & Spa Maldives with actors Nicole Beharie and Dan'ee Doty.

 

The "Four Stories" competition, launched globally in August, invited aspiring filmmakers to submit scripts with two criteria: films must be set at a W Hotel and feature the Intel-Inspired Ultrabook as a central plot component. Coppola, along with a panel of industry leaders, including actress Chloe Sevigny, actor Michael Pitt, actor PJ Ransone, W Hotels Global Music Director Michelangelo L'Acqua, Intel Chief Marketing Officer Deborah Conrad, VICE Executive Producer and Creative Director Eddy Moretti, screenwriter Jeff Baena, Vimeo Vice President of Creative Development Blake Whitman, and VICE Executive Creative Director Danny Gabai selected the winning scripts.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 19, 2012 – Intel Corporation today announced that the company’s president and CEO, Paul Otellini, has decided to retire as an officer and director at the company’s annual stockholders’ meeting in May, starting an orderly leadership transition over the next six months. Otellini’s decision to retire will bring to a close a remarkable career of nearly 40 years of continuous service to the company and its stockholders.

 

“Paul Otellini has been a very strong leader, only the fifth CEO in the company’s great 45-year history, and one who has managed the company through challenging times and market transitions,” said Andy Bryant, chairman of the board. “The board is grateful for his innumerable contributions to the company and his distinguished tenure as CEO over the last eight years.”

 

“I’ve been privileged to lead one of the world’s greatest companies,” Otellini said. “After almost four decades with the company and eight years as CEO, it’s time to move on and transfer Intel’s helm to a new generation of leadership. I look forward to working with Andy, the board and the management team during the six-month transition period, and to being available as an advisor to management after retiring as CEO.”

 

The board of directors will conduct the process to choose Otellini’s successor and will consider internal and external candidates for the job.

 

In addition, the company also announced that the board has approved the promotion of three senior leaders to the position of executive vice president: Renee James, head of Intel’s software business; Brian Krzanich, chief operating officer and head of worldwide manufacturing; and Stacy Smith, chief financial officer and director of corporate strategy.

 

During Otellini’s tenure as CEO -- from the second quarter of 2005 through the third quarter of 2012 -- Intel:

  • Generated cash from operations of $107 billion
  • Made $23.5 billion in dividend payments
  • Increased the quarterly dividend 181 percent from $0.08 to $0.225

 

From the end of 2005 through the end of 2011, Intel achieved record revenue and net income.  During this period, annual revenue grew from $38.8 billion to $54 billion, while annual earnings-per-share grew from $1.40 to $2.39.

 

In addition to financial performance, Intel, under Otellini’s leadership, achieved notable successes in areas of strategic importance. During this period, the company:

  • Transformed operations and the cost structure for long-term growth
  • Achieved breakthrough innovations, including High-K/Metal gate and now 3-D Tri-gate transistors; and dramatic improvement in energy efficiency of Intel processors
  • Reinvented the PC with Ultrabook™ devices
  • Greatly expanded business partnerships and made strategic acquisitions that expanded Intel’s presence in security, software and mobile communications
  • Delivered the first smartphones and tablets for sale with Intel inside
  • Grew the vast network of cloud-based computing built on Intel products
