Jonathan Reed won second place in AARP's [email protected] video contest launched in 2007 for his video, Lost Generation. Contestants were asked to create 2-minute video describing their vision of the future; what life would be like by the time they turned 50. Reed was inspired by the Argentinian political advertisement "The Truth" by RECREAR.
