Chevron “We Agree” TVPosted: January 1, 2013

The work shows the common ground that exists in this crucial area, ground that communities, economies, and the future can be built upon.
This case study video summarizes the ambition and success of the campaign pretty well.
The TV is very real, using real people, real Chevronians, shot in a simple and direct way. It’s a small step from the aesthetic of a video blog.
