The Lung Institute

Boxed In


We partnered with Publicis to direct a broadcast commercial designed to cut through the category clutter and give COPD sufferers a ray of hope. The claustrophobic feeling of being short of breath was expressed visually with a long, uninterrupted shot and a slowly collapsing frame. This ultimately gives way to a brighter, more vibrant color palette as the patient is able to participate in their favorite activities again.
