HP inspires people to reignite their creativity with “Jane”

Ads, Creativity

HP releases the international film “Jane” as the debut to their new campaign “Go Make Things” for Sprout by HP, a revolutionary new computing platform.

Partnering with 180LA, HP aims to illustrate what this new category of computing can do, the ease from which almost any idea we have can be realized through sprout. People too often have an idea and do nothing about it, sprout is the perfect tool to go from thought to expression in an instant. The film features HP’s new 3D Capture Stage that makes personal 3D printing easier than ever before.


As children our imaginations soar and creativity abounds. But as we grow older, for various reasons, our creativity seems quelled and our routines take over.  The film shows “Jane”—a protagonist who has lost her spirit to create—inspired by her daughter to keep imagination alive. The children’s Silverlake choir performs a rendition of Roger Hodgson’s “The Logical Song” throughout in a perfect parallel.

The campaign is the first new creative work from HP’s Personal Systems Group since Antonio Lucio, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, joined HP from Visa in May.
