FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY
ALL 30 HUMAN RIGHTS
HAVE BEEN PUT TO VIDEO.
Our new 30 Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are now
online. The ads are 30-60 seconds long. Total running time is 26 mins. They
are, needless to say, very moving. Some are very light and others are quite
heavy and dark.
Congratulations to Taron Lexton (Director of UNITED) and his
incredible Team for directing these brilliant PSAs and bringing them to life
for this campaign.
They are also available for purchase in high resolution DVD
quality. Please respect the copyright laws and do not reproduce these in low
quality CDs. See PSA article # 27. Thank you kindly.
Look for the LINK. New PSA’s.
Pass it on!
