Ford Motor Company presents a series of entertaining short films that celebrate the theme of “Small but Mighty.” The shorts, created by emerging filmmakers from around the world, showcase small acts and ideas that pack a mighty punch. The theme “Small but Mighty” is inspired by Ford’s much-celebrated range of EcoBoost engines. Ford’s EcoBoost engines deliver great power, use less fuel, and generate fewer emissions compared with larger-displacement, naturally aspirated engines. Filmmakers took up the challenge to craft short films that capture the spirit of what the engine range is all about, and demonstrate a moment in life, a person, or an idea that is small but mighty. From a man with incredibly strong super hero-like arms, to a young boy who dominates the soccer field—the short films explore a variety of subjects, but at their core the compelling message of “Small but Mighty” shines through.
A pint-sized football champ proves that size doesn’t matter in Soccer Prodigy. Director Jude Chun cast a talented eight-year-old with incredible ball-handling skills. The young boy’s impressive moves on the pitch steal the show in this comic book-style short. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2rF6oxKvng[/youtube]
Small but Mighty Arms
Andy Kelemen, an award winning filmmaker, produced Small but Mighty Arms. In the style of a mockumentary, the film’s comedic narrative revolves around the life of a slim man who at first struggles but then finds amazing use of his incredibly strong arms.

Ford EcoBoost: A Global Phenomenon
The first EcoBoost engine was introduced in 2009 and, since then, five million EcoBoost-equipped vehicles have been sold globally. In the Asia Pacific region, demand for the EcoBoost engine range is growing and Ford will be launching more vehicles equipped with the fuel-efficient technology. By the end of 2015, Ford will offer EcoBoost in Asia Pacific in more than 20 vehicles. In the Philippines, Ford offers the award-winning 1.0L EcoBoost in the Fiesta. Other EcoBoost engines are also available in the Ford Escape, Mustang, Explorer Sport, Expedition, and soon the new Focus.
