Ellen Kuras Directs Wall Street Journal's "The Runner" For The&Partnership
The “Good Things Come To Those Who Don’t Wait” campaign for The Wall Street Journal kicks off with “The Runner,” a film airing nationwide on TV, cinema, social and online, that depicts a woman who from birth has never stopped moving, driven by her ambition. It’s this ambition that WSJ readers possess which is fueled by the business news and insights they receive from the Journal every day. The film is designed to inspire a new generation of WSJ readers and future leaders.
The spot was directed by Ellen Kuras of The Corner Shop for agency The&Partnership.
A Journal reader herself, Kuras was keen to ensure that the female protagonist felt authentic, likable, relatable and inspiring.
