Brooklyn Beckham stars in brand film for Huawei's Honor 8 smartphone

Honor, a smartphone brand from Huawei pitched at the generation of "digital natives", has partnered with celebrity progeny Brooklyn Beckham to create a brand film.

The film follows the 17-year-old son of David Beckham, who has 8.2 million Instagram followers, as he captures footage around London with the brand.

Created by Hill + Knowlton Strategies London and shot by director Simon Cahn, it "explores individuality, creativity and finding a unique path", according to the brand.

Last November, Beckham's younger brother Romeo featured in Burberry's Christmas campaign.

Beckham said: "Honor stands for what I believe in. Being brave, creative and real. I loved working on the film and showing what I’m passionate about."

The campaign marks the launch of Honor’s new flagship device the Honor 8 in the US. The date of the UK launch is yet to be announced.
