About Project

A video project developed to coincide with a media pitch that showcased the aerosolized plumes that are ejected when a toilet is flushed. The video was edited into a news-style package and additional content was sent in a media pitch in the form of an edited voice over video, and sound on tape to be used by radio, print and television stations.
