PT Solutions 2017 Allatoona Triathlon Video Aims to Inspire

PT Solutions held its 7th annual Allatoona Triathlon on June 25 at the Dallas Landing Park on Lake Allatoona to raise money for the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. In addition to being the Presenting Sponsor, Lenz provided social media, public relations, and advertising services for the event.

Along with producing a promotional video for the race, several Lenz employees were on sight the day of the triathlon in order to capture photos and videos. Shortly after, the Lenz team was hard at work to produce the post-race video.

“While we strive to complete every client project in a timely fashion, producing this video was especially time-sensitive as it was a visual recap of an event – something that often loses its value in attendees’ minds as time passes,” said Lenz Account Coordinator Josh Grizzle, who oversaw the video’s production schedule. “In order to prevent this, we worked quickly to provide PT Solutions with our best work by weaving the story of the race together through interviews and awesome race-day footage.”

More than just a race culture video, Lenz wanted it to tell an important story. “PT Solutions holds the race each year in efforts to reduce the incidence of childhood cancer through cancer research. Telling this story instills a culture of goodwill for athletes of all levels,” explained Josh. “It sends a message that as long as you have the drive to succeed in any facet of life, you are unstoppable.”

Lenz Media Coordinator Chelsea Hoag, who produced the video, explains the goal she had in mind while bringing the project to life.

“My goal for this video was to showcase the tradition, compassion, and effort it takes to put on such a successful event,” said Chelsea. “I hope the video inspires viewers to try a marathon or triathlon for the first time. Most importantly, I want the viewers to know how much PT Solutions truly cares about its surrounding communities and the lengths they will go in order to see other people succeed.”

Lenz gets nerdy with the Atlanta Science Festival: The making of #ATLSciFest’s 2017 sponsor video

While Lenz has a long history of working with Atlanta-area festivals, 2017 marks our first year collaborating with the Atlanta Science Festival (ASF). In addition to social media, digital content, and marketing strategy services, the Lenz team had the pleasure of capturing the magic of #ATLSciFest 2017 through video as well. The goal? To demonstrate the value of sponsoring this great festival.

Lenz Media Coordinator Chelsea Hoag produced the video.

“For this project we really wanted to build a strong narrative and story, more than simply stating why organizations should become sponsors,” Chelsea explained. “We wanted to show the benefits of working with the festival, spotlight the many hardworking people who make the event a reality, and hear testimony from current sponsors.”

To achieve this goal, the Lenz team attended dozens of ASF events, spoke with festival organizers, and interviewed sponsors like Clorox, Delta, Google, Georgia Power, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

The final product told the compelling story of the talent, effort, and passion that our community pours into the Atlanta Science Festival each year.

Lenz develops video series for Emory Law’s JM program

Lenz recently partnered with Mixed Bag Media to produce a series of videos promoting Emory Law’s Juris Master program, which is designed for non-lawyers who want to gain an understanding of how the law relates to their field, and advance in their career. For the project, we interviewed seven current and former students of the program and asked them about how the degree helped their careers in the fields of health care, human resources, and business. We also had the opportunity to interview Stephen Sencer, the Senior Vice President and General Counsel and Senior Advisor to the President of Emory University about the value of the degree to working professionals.

As a part of a multifaceted video campaign, we worked with the Mixed Bag Media team to develop two versions of each interview (a 90-second and 30-second version), as well as a montage video featuring multiple students. The videos were used in a large-scale digital marketing campaign, which included social media, web, and YouTube.

Creating Confidence: Georgia Urology’s 2017 Marketing Campaign

How do you take often uncomfortable topics and develop messages that connect with potential patients looking for first-rate care? What do patients really want from their healthcare experience? These are just a couple of the questions the Lenz team asked when developing Georgia Urology’s 2017 “Confidence” campaign.

The “Confidence” campaign is designed to articulate the wide array of benefits that patients receive by partnering with Georgia Urology for their healthcare. And it recognizes that urology comes with particular sensitivities and considerations.

“The service offerings provided by Georgia Urology are critical, sometimes even life-saving,” said Accounts Supervisor Christine Mahin, who leads the Georgia Urology account for Lenz. “But we also knew they involved medical issues many people feel embarrassed and ashamed to discuss or seek help for. So, we asked ourselves: What does Georgia Urology offer patients that other practices do not?”

Following extensive research and after receiving important insights from the leadership at Georgia Urology, the Lenz team established a campaign theme that embodies Georgia Urology’s value to patients: confidence.

The concept was first articulated in a 60-second radio ad written by Lenz VP of Marketing, Mike Killeen:

Confidence.

It seems to be the missing ingredient in healthcare today.

We know more about the human body than ever before, benefit from cutting-edge research, and have access to medical technology that previous generations would have never dreamed of.

Yet, when it comes time to decide what to do for you and your family’s health, the choices can be overwhelming.

With something so important, you deserve a partner that you believe in. That’s called confidence. And it’s exactly what you get with Georgia Urology.

The concept of confidence speaks to how Georgia Urology’s patients feel when interacting with their care team, and when living their everyday lives. They are confident that they have chosen the right practice to care for them, that they are receiving the best, most appropriate treatments for their condition, and that they can confide in their care provider.

Similarly, Georgia Urology helps its patients live life freely and confidently, without worrying about the potential social impacts of their urological condition.

Lenz Creative Director Ben Barnes described the nuances behind developing visuals to fit this creative concept. “While every ad may not say ‘confidence’ directly, it’s the whole idea behind it that really counts. The idea we wanted to convey is that you can talk to your urologist without fear at Georgia Urology.”

OUT OF HOME 

 The Lenz design team relied heavily on both overt and subtle design elements to effectively bring the “Confidence” concept to life in a visual way.

The black-and-white imagery helped address the often serious, sensitive nature of the conditions Georgia Urology treats. Images were intentionally cropped to omit the faces of the primary subjects, making it easier for consumers to insert themselves into the scenarios displayed. Everyday situations were often conveyed in the artwork to make the messaging relatable. The green arrow framing the primary text intentionally elicits a shield, bringing associations of protection and guardianship to Georgia Urology’s name.

Finally, the Lenz Interactive team worked hand-in-hand with the design team to update the Georgia Urology website so that it harmonized with the campaign aesthetic. Lenz wanted to make sure the campaign was fully integrated: from billboards to the website. We strove visually to assure those who searched for the Georgia Urology brand online knew they were at the right place when they reached the homepage.

The Georgia Urology “Confidence” campaign is being extended throughout print, broadcast, and digital mediums in the Metro Atlanta market. The Lenz team is excited to continue to assist in developing Georgia Urology’s brand and promoting the confidence they provide their patients every day.

You Should Know: Meisa Salaita and Jordan Rose

Superheroes are often depicted wearing capes and flying around bustling cities in their bright and extravagant costumes. Jordan Rose and Meisa Salaita may not look the part, but they have become superheroes in their own important way by celebrating and promoting Atlanta’s thriving scientific community.

Jordan and Meisa are the co-founders and co-directors of the Atlanta Science Festival, a riveting 11-day celebration (March 15-25) of local science and technology right here in Atlanta, Georgia. The festival is designed to bring people together around a shared love for science through 100 individual and creative events. With experiences such as cooking and eating bugs, discovering the science behind brew-making, walking through Atlanta’s forests to witness the local wildlife, and stopping the zombie outbreak, it’s no wonder that the festival has seen remarkable success in a few short years. There is something for everyone, and no one will walk away from the festival disappointed at its offerings.

Behind it all are Jordan and Meisa.

Meisa Salaita holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Northwestern University, and is no stranger to working within scientific culture. Prior to co-founding the festival, she worked with two different National Science Foundation Centers for Chemical Innovation. She originally came up with the idea of the Atlanta Science Festival when she heard about similar festivals happening in Europe. After that, she decided that Atlanta needed to have one too. Thanks to Meisa’s passion and determination, the Atlanta Science Festival has grown from a collaboration between the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Georgia Tech, and Emory to a can’t-miss Atlanta event for the scientific and non-scientific communities alike.

When asked why the festival means so much to her, Meisa spoke about her passion for spreading the love of science: “It’s really important to make science a part of culture and to showcase how science is interesting, fun, not scary, and important! By having events that connect science to everyday life and to things that people are already interested in outside of science, we are able to achieve that.”

The co-architect of the festival is Jordan Rose. After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in neuroscience and behavioral biology as well as his Master of Public Health degree in prevention science from Emory, Jordan has gone on to hold multiple scientific roles. From working as the Associate Director of the Center for Science Education at Emory to becoming the Executive Director of the Georgia BioEd Institute, Jordan’s love for science has followed him everywhere he has gone.

Jordan’s passion for the festival is evident when speaking to him. He believes that, for a lot of people, science leaves a bad taste in their mouth, perhaps because of a negative experience in their education. To Jordan, the festival is a way to bring those people back into the fold and break down the stereotypes that exist over scientists and science alike. To Jordan, it all boils down to one idea, “We’re trying to show people that scientists are people too.”

Lenz is proud to market, sponsor, and support the 2017 Atlanta Science Festival.
