Chicago Youth of the Year Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago 2014

Chicago Youth of the Year Event


Each year, individual clubs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of BGCC’s Youth of the Year. The Award is considered the Nonprofit organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service, and academic standing. Eight candidates competed for this year’s title. Each of them shared amazing stories about how the organization has changed their lives. We filmed the event, which had over 1,000 people in attendance at Navy Pier in Chicago. After the event, we edited the highlight video online and delivered 100 DVDs to donors; some of which had custom thank you’s from each of the candidates.

MECCA Center // New Construction Fundraising Video


Members of the fundraising committee at MECCA (Muslim Educational & Cultural Center of America) saw the fundraising video we created for the DarusSalam mosque in Lombard, Illinois. With construction well under way for their $8.5 million facility, the Non-profit organization needed a video for their upcoming fundraising event. The purpose of the video was to communicate the need for a new space and show members what the new building will look like.
Willowbrook Video Production MECCA Mosque
We filmed at their new construction site and current mosque with our 12′ mini jib, Steadicam/Glidecam, and our High Definition DSLR video camera. We combined all of the footage we filmed with a professional voiceover, music, and client photos/animations in post production. Scripting services and 2D logo animation were also provided by our studio. The entire video was shot, edited, and delivered to the client in less than a week!

This is our second year following the Youth of the Year candidates for the Chicago nonprofit as they prepare for the culminating event at Navy Pier in Chicago. Our crew filmed at three of their clubs and interviewed those club’s candidates. We also filmed two preparation meetings, a final dress rehearsal, and multiple interviews with the remaining candidates and some of the staff. In all, it was five days of field production.
