Cut+Run’s Georgia Dodson & Staci LeVan Edit The New Janusz Kaminski-Directed Transamerica Campaign for JWT Atlanta
Everybody has a moment when they say “It’s Real Now.” That’s the premise behind the new Transamerica campaign via agency JWT Atlanta, directed by Janusz Kaminski and edited by Cut+Run’s Georgia Dodson and Staci LeVan. The campaign features an anthem broadcast spot and extended web films featuring narratives surrounding pivotal moments in people’s lives where financial planning and investments can transform tomorrow: The wonder experienced with the birth of a child, funding your child’s dream college, retirement happiness and more. The online films are featured on the Transamerica website and via Facebook where audiences can submit their “It’s Real Now” moments.
Dodson and LeVan worked on individual brand films connecting throughout the project for consistency of tone and cadence extended across the campaign.
“It was a challenge to find the most emotional moments because every second of the footage is intimate and gorgeous,” recalls Dodson. “I had a blast with that challenge and benefitted from working with a great team: the Transamerica clients, JWT Atlanta, Janusz Kaminski, and fellow editor Staci LeVan.”
“Transamerica was one of those dream jobs,” agrees Staci LeVan. “Amazing footage and creatives and clients that were really passionate about the process. It was great to be part of that team.”
