Sky Media and News UK's Bridge Studio have beeb tasked with producing short and long-form executions across TV, print and radio.

The first of the three short documentaries launched this week. Featuring Perkins, it explore the impact of driverless cars. The second instalment will follow in January and highlight AXA's support for healthcare technology innovators, with the third coming in April to promote the brand's Health Tech & You Awards recognising "health innovators".

Karen Robson, head of marketing communications at AXA UK, said: "The work we do at AXA is about much more than insurance, and our role in the development of driverless cars, our work with researchers across the world and our support of health technology innovators underlines this. We want to discuss our efforts in the public forum and this partnership allows us to do just that."
