Lucent Awards Project to Citigate, Aspect Group

NEW YORK Citgate has won a short film project from Lucent Technologies, the agency said yesterday, and will work together with The Aspect Group to create a video.

The video, scheduled for distribution this fall, will help introduce Lucent systems to potential customers. The Aspect Group in Los Angeles has worked on a variety of entertainment advertising, including TV spots and movie posters for Spider-Man 2, Gladiator and Men in Black.
