St Raphael Church Video

St. Raphael Catholic Church


St. Raphael Catholic Church (Naperville, Illinois) has always been near and dear to my heart. I grew up with the church, attended elementary school there, established their sound board ministry, and volunteered in various other religious ministries. For the past several years, I helped with a live audio visual set-up during their Holy Saturday Mass. Through my lens, parishioners were able to view the outdoor fire ceremony and Baptisms that took place in the Narthex without having to leave the sanctuary area. We set-up a live screen in the sanctuary where parishioners could view the events via a live video feed that I provided. Robert Frazier, Co-Director of Music & Liturgy, has always been a huge fan on our wedding work and the trailers we created of those events. So, this year, he asked me to create a short trailer of the Holy Saturday Mass. In many ways, creating this video was a labor of love. It symbolizes the energy that comes from those walls in Naperville, Illinois.

DarusSalam Foundation // Fundraising Video

DarusSalam Foundation Logo

DarusSalam Foundation is one of the newest mosques being built in the Chicago suburb of Lombard, Illinois. They hired Delack Media Group to produce a video that would show donors the project’s progress and help with fundraising for completion of the campus. We met with the foundation’s Directors and project team leaders to develop a cohesive message that would show viewers an inside view of the mosque. Due to religious reasons, one of the challenging parts of this production was the inability to show anyone’s faces in the video. So, we used voiceovers from the project’s Architect/Structural Engineer/Builder, Directors, and community members; and also used silhouette shots of people praying in the masjid. Here are the lower third motion graphics we created to introduce each speaker

Here’s how the video appeared on their website:

Evanston podiatrist medical web video production in Chicago

Evanston Podiatric Surgeons

Evanston Podiatric Surgeons wanted to connect with potential patients beyond the text and photos on their website. Led by Dr. Tayeb Hussain, the Evanston, Illinois medical practice hired Delack Media Group to produce a web video that would appear on their re-branded website and other social media outlets (including YouTube and Facebook). With their end result in mind, we went with a storytelling approach, interviewing patients and employees at the practice. By hearing the doctors and patients talk about the practice in their own words, we felt the viewer would have a better connection to the message. Dr. Hussain is also part of the North Shore University Health System in Evanston, Illinois. So, we were able to film several scenes on their hospital campus.

Having the video on Google also helped with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Their website’s Google ranking for “Evanston Podiatrist” stayed at the number one and two slots, but the YouTube video we uploaded bumped out whichever entry was in the #6 position. This gave the medical practice three of the first six Google results for “Evanston Podiatrist”, which greatly increased visibility on the search engine.
