1990 Finalist, Patient Information Category New York Film Festival Videocassette, 20 min., Boston, Eidetics, 1990. Frederick Gale, Robert Pearlstein, James Kirk, and George Mabry with PBS filmmakers. From the Heart: People Talk About Lowering Their Cholesterol This video was conceived and produced by my company, in combination with PBS filmmakers. The goal was to improve patient adherence with what was then new therapy for high cholesterol. The video featured real patients on medication for high cholesterol. Also included were Dr. Bill Castelli of the Framingham Heart Study, and actor Peter Faulk of Columbo fame. Mr. Faulk served as host because he was on medication for high cholesterol, and talked about it in the video.
