Trust-Based Campaigns: A Brand Ambassador w/ PTSD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A veteran with PTSD may watch the hands of strangers for weapons and attempt suicide six times. She may also be the best brand ambassador for the biggest veteran’s nonprofit in the country. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has broken new ground with its original documentary series, “Wounded: The Battle Back Home,” which was created with Flow Nonfiction and acquired by MSNBC. As part of a distribution strategy spanning digital, broadcast and social, WWP chose to foreground its subjects as ambassadors for the organization. What are the risks and rewards for any company entrusting real people with its brand? What’s the line between empowerment and exploitation? How do filmmakers earn the trust of both a doc subject and their WWP client to tell these stories? How does a digital agency mix a subject’s personal digital presence with the campaign’s? The experiences of the subject herself – and the team as a whole – will reveal best practices for all of us. This practical panel will inspire.
