Lost Planet Helps Turn Negative Perceptions into Positive for Oppenheimer Funds

Editorial/post-production company Lost Planet lent its patented cutting polish to a series of uplifting :15 ads from agency MRM//McCann for investment banking company, Oppenheimer Funds.

Directed by Smuggler’s Henry Alex Rubin, the four Oppenheimer Funds spots break down preconceived notions of various integral parts of our lives including women, the elderly, selfie-loving millennials and even robots, ultimately conveying encouraging messages about each. Infusing his talents, Lost Planet editor Charlie Johnston deftly – and quickly – turns negatives into positives, presenting literal slices-of-life in which cynical perceptions are displaced by more inspiring realities.
