Andy Maser recently directed United Way’s 2017 global PSA campaign, a creative effort to shine a more provocative light at the global humanitarian charity. Previous brand work for United Way has generally been conservative and principally featured smiling volunteers in “United Way” t-shirts. The 2017 campaign takes a dramatically different approach by focusing on tough problems, gritty scenes and dramatic moments. The campaign was shot of 10 days in Miami, Milwaukee and Jackson, MS.
This PSA campaign is made up of a :60, a :30, a :20 and 6 :15s. There is also a print campaign that was shot by Matt Eich.
The film team shot in 8K on the RED Epic-W camera with Zeiss Otus and ZF lenses.
