High Jump is a Chicago nonprofit organization that provides tuition-free academic enrichment programs for 7th and 8th graders in Chicago Public Schools. We were hired to produce a fundraising video for their annual gala.

Over the course of two days, our video production crew filmed at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools campus in Chicago. We worked with our client to identify students who could appear on camera and share their stories.

Their fundraising goal for this event was $175,000. After the video played, they raised more than 123% of their goal, totaling over $215,816 in donations! To check out some of the other nonprofit fundraising videos we have produced, CLICK HERE.

Chicago nonprofit organizations are always looking for creative ways to showcase how their services affect people’s lives in video productions. These videos can be viewed on social media, a nonprofit organization’s website, at a fundraising event…the possibilities are endless!

For it’s upcoming Chicago nonprofit fundraising event, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s Women’s Board wanted to feature someone who had gone through the Chicago nonprofit‘s programs and was working in their dream job.

We produced a video story about Mercedes. Her parents were Mexican immigrants who moved to one of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. The streets were riddled with violence and gangs. Her brother was shot at. The list goes on. Mercedes found out about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, a nonprofit organization in her neighborhood.

We filmed on two days with a Sony A7Sii, which allowed us to film in a picture profile that allowed for maximum post production color grading. Our crew also included a field audio operator and Grip. On the first day of filming, we captured the soundbites with our subject as well as various b-roll shots around the club. On the second day of filming, we followed our subject around while working at the Chicago Fire Department. Post production services included editing, music licensing, color grading, and sound mixing.

The film was delivered to the client digitally to be shown at the nonprofit‘s fundraising event. After this video was shown at the event, over $1.4 million was raised! We also delivered separate versions for social media.
