The truth doesn’t report itself. Rather, it requires journalists with bravery, perseverance and rigor--like those at The New York Times. In this spot titled “Resolve,” that drive to uncover the truth is applied to the Myanmar Rohingya crisis.

The film features dynamic text set on top of video clips and stills that depict the story being created and the first person process of the journalist. The evolving type technique reflects the psychology and thought process of The New York Times journalist—deliberately written in headline case, it changes, moves, deletes and rewrites as we mimic the reporter’s journeys  as they chase the truth. The twists and turns of the footage and type ultimately fall into place to make up the final headline that was originally run by The New York Times.

Directed by Daniel Lindsay and TJ Martin of production house Furlined, “Resolve” is part of The New York Times campaign, “The Truth Is Worth It,” conceived by Droga5 New York.
