Cautiously Close: A Documentary Film

The Brief

Amgen turned to The Atlantic to help communicate the impact and complexity of their world-changing advances in cancer treatment.

The Solution

The story of Amgen’s cutting-edge cancer research is about more than the big breakthroughs—it’s about the community of researchers, doctors, technicians, and patients who work together every day to make them possible. To bring Amgen’s life-saving work to our audiences, we traveled the globe (from Munich to Nantucket) to create Cautiously Close: Inside the Race Against Cancer, an 8-minute documentary-style video, and 5 unique video cut downs optimized for social media, that showcase the future of oncology through the people who are leading the way.

Core Capabilities
  • Documentary-style video
Karen Peterson, cancer survivor, patient advocate.
PK Morrow, VP of Global Development, Amgen.
