American Heart AssociationThe American Heart Association‘s mission is to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and strokes. AHA educates people about how to prevent disease through diet, exercise and medical intervention.

The Association recently produced a video to promote its mission. It’s a story about heart–both literally and figuratively. The video is well crafted with creative photography and dramatic lighting. The producers stayed away from a heavy handed script with melodramatic music, simply letting the subjects tell this heartfelt story. Overall, it’s an emotional experience with a happy ending highlighting a teenage girl who has–yes–heart.
