Youth of the Year Event // Navy Pier

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:

Rendezvous Music | Branding Film

Rendezvous Music is a wedding and event band in Chicago. We first received the call from Rendezvous Music a few years ago. At the time, we filmed a wedding at Union Station in Chicago; where their band performed. They ended up seeing the trailer we edited from that wedding and loved our filmmaking style. During our initial conversation, we talked about the possibility of producing a branding film for their company…a video that would show potential clients what it’s like to an experience an event with the band performing.

Over the course of the next few years, we followed Rendezvous Music’s two bands: Rendezvous Band and Greenlight while they performed at Trump International Hotel, The Field Museum, and The Museum of Science and Industry.

We were able to get some really nice angles of the band with the 25′ jib/camera crane in those large venues. One of the tricky parts about this production was music. We wanted to show the band performing in several different venues; all while keeping the same music track throughout the video. So, we worked with Rendezvous to create a custom music score with their band singing and performing, which reflected the video’s message and company branding.

We also interviewed the band’s leader, Toni DiDonato, and included soundbites from that interview in the final branding film!

Museum of Science and Industry // Special Events Video


The Museum of Science and Industry’s Special Events team at Sodexo hired us to produce a promotional video. The video’s purpose was to show people what it’s like to have an event (corporate, wedding, etc.) at the museum. We used a 25′ camera crane to capture some amazing indoor aerial views of the museum’s huge space.

We also used our Glidecam to film some of the flying ground shots with our DSLR video cameras. Our graphics team created a custom 2D logo animation closing graphic, which matched with their logo and website branding.

The promotional video was embedded on the museum’s website for visitors to watch
