Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation
Follow My Lead
The things people have said to people with lung cancer are just shocking, and so to highlight this the Roy Castle Lunch Cancer Foundation and their communications agency Virgo Health identified a universally relatable patient insight that people often feel nervous and uncomfortable when speaking to someone living with cancer and teamed up with stand-up comedian, John Ryan, to address this awkwardness and find a better way to talk about lung cancer.
Blonde were approached to produce and direct a humorous but informative ‘one-shot’ film to address the awkwardness, to support family and friends when talking to loved ones with lung cancer and ultimately to help change people’s perception and behaviour towards lung cancer patients.
Expected social engagement rates doubled, alongside an earned collaboration with TFL and a Sky News Twitter debate, the film paid off and created the Foundation’s ‘best campaign yet’.
