Motoring Marvels

Motoring Marvels

Introducing . . Motoring Marvels. Let me tell you how activeTV 'Enjoyed the Journey' by partnering with MEC Wavemaker to create a branded content series for Caltex that solely lives online.

READ MORE

The series is made for purpose; a natural extension of Celebrity Car Wars, which allowed Caltex to sustain their association with both properties and the overall motoring experience.

Motoring Marvels is an 8 episode Branded Content series featuring Bobby Tonelli; celebrating the world’s automotive wonders, all things with an engine and wheels. Bobbi Tonelli reviews eight magnificent machines from the most powerful beasts, the pristinely preserved classics to the remarkable rebels that defy the limits of automotive performance.

Driving Change

‘Driving Change’ is a one-hour special airing on Fox International Channels' StarWorld and online via YouTube and the Caltex website. Host Henry Golding travels across Southeast Asia to make a difference to communities around the region.

Thankfully he’s getting some help from some of his celebrity friends.

‘Driving Change’ is a one-hour special airing on Fox International Channels' StarWorld and online via YouTube and the Caltex website. Host Henry Golding travels across Southeast Asia to make a difference to communities around the region. With only three days in five different countries, will he be able to harness the power of social media in time to help those in need? Thankfully he’s getting some help from some of his celebrity friends.

Henry starts his journey in Malaysia where his first challenge is raising funds for the food and learning materials of 50 underprivileged children. Next, he moves to Hong Kong where he is rolling up his sleeves to refurbish a learning centre. The missions all sound easy enough until he arrives in Thailand – building an entire library! He realizes that the stakes are getting higher with each new destination he visits. Arriving at a rural community in the Philippines, Henry takes on the mammoth task of not only restoring an entire sports field, but also sourcing for sports equipment for 2,000 children!

The final part of his whirlwind journey takes him to Singapore and his biggest challenge yet – packing and selling food hampers for 5,000 needy elderly. A feat not even his production crew thought possible! ‘Driving Change’ showcases an incredible journey to harness the power of social media to drive change in local communities.
