Florida's citrus producers are launching a fresh burst of TV advertising to promote the healthy benefits of orange juice from Florida.
The Richards Group in Dallas drafted in the specialist table-top director David Wynn-Jones, acclaimed for his skill in capturing hi-speed digital imagery, to bring the brief to life. The result is a 30-second spot featuring juice being poured from jug to glass under the theme: "Healthy, pure and simple."
The commercial was commissioned by the Florida Department of Citrus, which is responsible for the marketing, research and regulation of the Florida citrus industry. Its activities are funded by a tax, which is paid by citrus growers on each box of citrus that moves through commercial channels.

A skydiver who escapes death when his parachute fails to open is being used by a US cancer charity to highlight the advances being made in cancer research.
The national TV spot was commissioned by CR Magazine, the publication of the American Association for Cancer Research, to draw attention to the greatly improved survival rates of cancer sufferers.
Created by The Brooklyn Brothers in New York, the spot appears to be home video camera footage of a terrified girl watching her friend plunge from the sky. She is staggered when he picks himself up only slightly dazed.
The film closes with the message: "Twenty-five years ago, walking away from cancer was just as unlikely."
Experts have calculated that the death rate from cancer of Americans under the age of 65 dropped by 27 per cent between 1977 and 2004.
