Science, Health, and Humanity Together on Film


What do a professional singer, 13-year-old gamer, African pediatrician, and suburban mom have to do with the future of science and healthcare? 


At a time when companies in life sciences and healthcare are expressing discontent over solely transactional relationships, consumers are also craving more authentic partnerships with brands.

Gaining that intimacy is harder than it seems. It requires getting out of the way of the right narrative and its call to action, and trusting that your brand will resonate with your audience as long as you take the time to get to know them. 


— An unscripted, narrative documentary film or series that includes assets for social sharing, rich media, optimized web viewing, and large-screen showcases.
