CONTACT: Crisis Line is a promotional piece for the non-profit Organization CONTACT.    Being an emergency crisis phone line, this video focuses around the story of a man named Jack, struggling with an unnamed addiction.  Interwoven with interview and archival footage, Contact:  Crisis Line is a fine example of creative editing and consistency of vision.

It was decided that the piece be integrated with a interpersonal narrative.  The story of Jack  originated as a three-paragraph hypothetical in the Contact Newsletter and was adapted for the screen by Wagner.
