American Diabetes Association // Father of the Year

chicago nonprofit video production

Every nonprofit has a story to tell. The American Diabetes Association is a national nonprofit organization that works to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

For this video production, we were hired to produce profile videos for each of the four recipients of the organization’s prestigious Father of the Year Awards. The series of four videos spoke about the honoree’s accomplishments, their families, their life as a father, and connection to the nonprofit organization. We filmed the videos in Whitefish Bay, WI, Naperville, and Chicago. Each of the videos represented each of the honorees and their lives. The videos were played to a live audience at the organization’s annual event in Chicago.

The Morton Arboretum // Illumination Promo Video


The Morton Arboretum is a 1,700 acre tree museum that is located in Lisle, Illinois. It collects and studies trees, shrubs, and other plants from all around the world and displays them in its property for visitors to enjoy.

During the Winter, the nonprofit decorates their landscape with colorful lights that respond to visitor’s touch and voice. This is the second year they’ve held Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum. To enhance its online marketing campaign, the organization hired us to update its original video with new scenes and experiences from the event. We filmed on the grounds with our DSLR video cameras. We also updated the motion graphics within After Effects to reflect new event dates.

St Raphael Church Video

St. Raphael Catholic Church


St. Raphael Catholic Church (Naperville, Illinois) has always been near and dear to my heart. I grew up with the church, attended elementary school there, established their sound board ministry, and volunteered in various other religious ministries. For the past several years, I helped with a live audio visual set-up during their Holy Saturday Mass. Through my lens, parishioners were able to view the outdoor fire ceremony and Baptisms that took place in the Narthex without having to leave the sanctuary area. We set-up a live screen in the sanctuary where parishioners could view the events via a live video feed that I provided. Robert Frazier, Co-Director of Music & Liturgy, has always been a huge fan on our wedding work and the trailers we created of those events. So, this year, he asked me to create a short trailer of the Holy Saturday Mass. In many ways, creating this video was a labor of love. It symbolizes the energy that comes from those walls in Naperville, Illinois.
