While planning its fundraising event, they contacted Delack Media Group, asking if we could produce a video that told an emotional, visual story about the hospital and its impact on patients. We came up with the concept of interviewing former patients’ families and combining those soundbites with visuals of them and of the new facility. Paired with musical scores in post production, their personal stories came alive. Eight months later, and many months of planning…we were able to produce a video that tells a story about the organization and its mission. The Children’s Service Board raised over $412,000 for Lurie Children’s Hospital, which was a record-setting year for the organization!

Bethany Methodist Fundraiser

Bethany Methodist Communities Video Production + Audio Visual Support

Each year, Bethany Methodist Communities hosts a fundraising event for their Good Samaritan Fund. Bethany Methodist Communities is a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization that manages: Methodist Hospital Chicago; Partners in Healthcare, which is a licensed home care service; and several senior living communities, including: Bethany Retirement Community (Chicago, Illinois), Chestnut Square at The Glen (Glenview, Illinois), Terrace Gardens (Morton Grove, Illinois), and The Bethany Terrace (Morton Grove, Illinois).

The Good Samaritan Fund helps subsidize costs for residents who are otherwise unable to afford the care they need. Bethany Methodist enlisted the help of Delack Media Group to produce a series of videos that were shown at their fundraising event. With a video crew of four people, we captured interviews at their facilities from several residents, family members of residents, and staff members. Here is one of the vignettes that were shown:

In addition to the video production, Delack Media Group handled all of the AV (audio visual) support for the fundraising event, which was held at the Holiday Inn Skokie. We had two 4’11″x8’9″ rear projection truss screens with black trim kit displaying the video and full screen graphics, multiple wireless microphones, a live audio technician, event director & producer, and a tape-based High Definition camera to videotape the entire event.

Here’s a sample of the lighting we used during the video shoot:
