Special Olympics Colorado is a nonprofit organization that uses sports and education to promote inclusion in society of people with developmental disabilities. When Ryerson employees offered to volunteer for one of the nonprofit’s events in Denver, the two organizations combined for one single purpose that day; to ensure all kids had fun. This video production is a story about their day!

Nonprofit event video production in Chicago is amazing. The annual Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Youth of the Year Competition and Dinner is no exception. This year, nearly 1,000 people packed the Navy Pier Grand Ballroom to hear each of the candidates speak about their experience with the Chicago nonprofit’s clubs. The nonprofit event was emceed by WGN-TV’s Micah Materre. Speakers included Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

To film the event, we had two ground DSLR video cameras and one 24′ jib to capture the moving interior aerial video shots. Post production included High Definition editing, music licensing, and After Effects motion graphics work.

Congratulations to Eve Houser, who received the Youth of the Year award. Click below to watch her inspirational speech:

In anticipation of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Women’s Board Gala, we were hired to produce a film that would introduce attendees to what the club does. We wanted the film to connect with the audience on an emotional level. So, we filmed with our DSLR cameras at two of the nonprofit organization’s roughest clubs. We wanted the audience to focus on the kid’s stories. In order to achieve that, our creative approach included interviews shot against a white backdrop. Final post editing included a black and white effect. We also created a closing logo animation where the organization’s symbolic door would swing open to a collage of video images and revealed their logo.

From our client: “As the client, I was amazed at the work Nathan provided. I have worked with him on several projects and he always gets it spot on-from music to narrative to visual. Beautiful and meaningful work as always.”
