Public Service Announcements
A 30-second television public service announcement on CFS illustrates the impact of CFS on one woman and her family during the course of a single day. The PSA also educates the public about the symptoms of CFS and encourages people with those symptoms to:
GET INFORMED. GET DIAGNOSED. GET HELP.
The PSA, which was produced by Los Angeles director Peter Lang, employs a sophisticated slow-motion technique. Lang and his Pictures in a Row film crew experimented for days to perfect a technique that helps viewers understand the physical effects of CFS.
The PSA has been distributed to more than 800 television stations and networks across the country and has been aired more than 13,000 times so far. Click here to watch the TV PSA with Windows Media player. If you do not have Windows Media Player, please click here to download a free version.
