ASUS ROG releases For Those Who Dare film featuring Asa Butterfield, Nyjah Huston, Karl-Anthony Towns, Alan Walker & Son Heung-Min

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced For Those Who Dare, a new film that features the latest ROG ambassadors and their pursuit of excellence. It was filmed in London and shot with no stunt doubles, despite including a real ring of fire and high-flying skateboard tricks. ROG will also release a behind the scenes look at For Those Who Dare in the near future. 

The current ROG ambassadors are actor Asa Butterfield, skateboarder Nyjah Huston, basketball player Karl-Anthony Towns, DJ Alan Walker and ROG’s newest addition, footballer Son Heung-Min. For Those Who Dare explores fears and how to conquer them. Anticipation, expectations, stage fright, and potential injury all come up when these ROG ambassadors go to work every day, and the film utilizes unique imagery and stunts to examine how these all-stars overcome their anxieties. The film demonstrates how individuals draw strength by having the courage to dare to overcome fears.

Production company The Mill assisted the filming in London with the film utilizes practical effects, including a gasoline-fueled ring of fire and skateboard jumps over a 7-foot razor-wire-lined fence.

“We are incredibly proud to unveil a project that has been in the works for the past few months. ROG has always been committed to embodying our tagline of ‘For Those Who Dare,’ be it through our products or through the ambassadors that represent us,” said Galip Fu, the Global Consumer Marketing Director for ROG. “With the release of this film, we hope to invite our viewers into the world of ROG, demonstrating what it means to dare to overcome.” 

The film features Karl Anthony Towns with the Strix SCAR, Nyjah Huston with the Strix G, Asa Butterfield with the Flow Z13, Alan Walker with the Zephyrus G14, and Son Heung-Min with the Flow X16.

No matter how gamers approach their play, ROG has a laptop for their style. “I’m always on the lookout for new tech and innovations in that world, and ROG seem to be kind of pushing the boat out a lot,” said Butterfield.

Fear is simply an obstacle to be overcome for these legends. All stunts were done without doubles, including the ring of fire and skateboard jump over a razor-wire-lined fence. “I like doing shoots like this where I can actually skate something proper like I did today,” said Huston. “It’s always fun to be able to mix in what I do as a skateboarder with a brand like ROG.” As true ambassadors of ROG spirit, these all-stars overcame all obstacles in their path with their own determination.

The company also shot plenty of behind-the-scenes footage during the shoot as well hence these clips are expected to be released soon,
