The Four Spots Integrate a Seamless Bridge From A Tradition Broadcast Commercial
To A Web Spot That Delivers A Long-Form Documentary-Style Story

Recentlyh Studio 108, the full-service production, editorial, and audio company, joined forces with Burford Advertising to create an inventive series of two-part, cross-platform spots for Childsavers, a non-profit dedicated to helping children with developmental and emotional issues.

From a tour production standpoint, it’s also easy to see why Audinate’s popular digital media networking technology Dante™, was chosen by Brit Row Productions.
