August Road Entertainment is proud to have helped create a record breaking online campaign for Water.org, using scripted comedy as a tool to highlight the serious issues of the global water crisis. We worked closely with Dilated Pixels, YouTube, and the team at Water.org.

Co-founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org is dedicated to solving the world water crisis – in our lifetime. So far, Water.org has positively transformed the lives of nearly a million individuals.
