The Chicago Youth of the Year event is hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago at Navy Pier. The event was emceed by Bill Kurts and speakers included Mayor Rahm Emanual. We filmed with our DSLR video cameras and edited several hours of footage into this highlight video. After the event, we also provided various video clips of the event to chicago news media. Videos of the event and candidate profile video were mailed on thermally-printed DVDs that also contained custom “thank yous” for donors.

Youth of the Year // Candidate Profile Video

We have worked with Chicago-based nonprofit, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago for several years on their Youth of the Year program.

Each year, several students are chosen as leaders at their specific club. Those students then go on to compete for the Youth of the Year title. As part of the competition, candidates write several essays. We knew this video was going to profile the candidates in some way. In thinking about the treatment for this particular video, we started reading through those essays and found some very powerful statements. We got to thinking…what if we combine those statements into a story? …and that’s exactly what happened.

Over the course of four days, we traveled to the organization’s clubs and filmed the candidates reciting their statements to the camera. All of their words were combined and presented to a live audience of over 900 people at Navy Pier.

Samaritan Counseling Center // Nonprofit Event



Samaritan Counseling Center Northwest is a Barrington, Illinois-based nonprofit organization that provides counseling services to individuals, couples, families, and groups.

The organization was holding a holiday fundraising event at The Garlands of Barrington. Our client wanted the video we produced to not only highlight the event but also to serve as a branding film for the organization.

In addition to filming with our High Definition DSLR video cameras, post production included the organization’s graphics. We create a full screen logo animation at the end and lower third graphics, which complimented the logo design. We also setup a YouTube channel for them, which will host future video content.
