Prevent Child Abuse America // Branding Film


This Chicago nonprofit wanted to create greater brand awareness and recognition by developing a video to be disseminated online as well as to each of its 50 state chapters nationwide. The primary purpose of the video is to portray Prevent Child Abuse America’s mission, brand, and nationwide reach, which tells the organization’s story in a visually compelling way.

Our crew filmed for three total days in the field. We interviewed key staff, board, and volunteers at the nonprofit’s Chicago headquarters. Using an anamorphic technique, we filmed the interviews against a plain white background and edited between three cameras. For the final vignette, we cast several actors who helped target various demographics.

Anixter Center // The Power of Design to Transform Lives


Anixter Center is one of the largest Chicago nonprofits that serves people with disabilities. What started in 1918 with a need to have an orphanage for abandoned children has grown into an organization that now serves 7,300 adults and children annually through 34 programs and services at 35 locations across the greater Chicago area. Programs focus on providing those with all types of disabilities the ability to participate fully and equally in society. 90% of the non-profit’s clients are at or below the federal poverty line.

How do spaces influence people? What impact does design have on the way we feel? Those are just some of the questions Anixter Center asked itself before embarking on a remarkable journey that would change the face of their non-profit organization. This video tells that story.

Chicago Youth of the Year Event


Each year, individual clubs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of BGCC’s Youth of the Year. The Award is considered the Nonprofit organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service, and academic standing. Eight candidates competed for this year’s title. Each of them shared amazing stories about how the organization has changed their lives. We filmed the event, which had over 1,000 people in attendance at Navy Pier in Chicago. After the event, we edited the highlight video online and delivered 100 DVDs to donors; some of which had custom thank you’s from each of the candidates.
