National PSA for the Veterans Administration.

Jeffrey Lamont Brown directed the 1st PSA of a three-spot campaign for the Veterans  Administration (VA) last week in L.A.  The spot is designed to raise awareness about the VA’s Veterans Crisis Line among the many Vietnam-era veterans who still suffer from Post Tramautic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The spot is scheduled to air nationally during Suicide Prevention Week September 4-11, 2011.

Vietnam-era veteran Phil Sky did an amazing job with a gut wrenching script that was the result of extensive research by the creative team of Karen Lau and Roman Wyden. Wyden, EP at Creable Films said,  “Working with real people about real issues is Jeffrey’s forte, and he captured the genuine spirit of this campaign.” Brown said, “I’m really pleased with the look of the footy. Thanks to everyone, it was an ambitious night shoot and everybody pulled hard and made some great imagery to serve this deserving group.”   See more  photos here.
