Chicago Virtual Reality Video Production

Virtual reality 360° video production is another way that Chicago brands can communicate their message in a unique way. Especially for nonprofit organizations, the virtual reality technology allows viewers to immerse themselves in an environment and experience the organization through the eyes of a client. With the capability nowadays to stream the 360° video content online via various social media channels, the potential viewing audience increases greatly when compared to the traditional VR goggle viewing experience. We even have the capability of livestreaming (webcasting) live events in 360° virtual reality environments viewable via smartphones, tablets or computer desktops!

For this particular VR 360° video project, we were hired by the Children’s Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County to produce a video that allowed viewers to experience the center through their client’s eyes. In this case, it’s a child. The Children’s Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County has offices in Hoffman Estates, Northbrook and Streamwood. The nonprofit provides healing and support services to children who are abused. After a case of abuse is opened with DCFS or local law enforcement, the child is taken to the Children’s Advocacy Center where a trained forensic interviewer speaks with the child. Funding for the nonprofit center is largely based on private donations. So, philanthropy is crucial to keeping the nonprofit open.

One of the fundraising challenges the nonprofit organization faces is that donors don’t get to see what the process looks like from a child’s perspective. By producing the virtual reality video, we were able to put the donors in the child’s shoes from the time they walk in the front door to the time they sit down with a forensic interviewer.

We worked with the client to develop a script. For the video production, we hired two actors. The forensic interviewer and secretary roles were played by staff members. Field video production took place at the nonprofit organization’s Hoffman Estates location. We used our 3D 360° Virtual Reality 4K Video camera to capture the scenes.

All of the video footage was edited, the 4K cameras were all stitched together, music and titles were added, and the final video production was delivered to the client via the virtual reality goggles. The nonprofit even posted a behind the scenes look and blog article about our video production!

We started planning for this testimonial video production about a year ago. MisterHomes is a real estate agency based in the Northwest Chicago suburb of Palatine, Illinois. However, they service the entire Chicago real estate market. They wanted to increase their suite of videos while educating potential clients about their real estate services.

We developed a video marketing plan that involved the video production of a real estate branding film. After that was created and posted on the company’s website, we produced a series of testimonial videos. They were filmed in Palatine, Schaumburg, and Wadsworth, Illinois over the course of two days. During pre-production, we learned more about each client’s story and really focused in on putting viewers in their shoes through the visuals we filmed and storytelling. All of the videos were edited. We also created a compilation and social media video cutdowns. The series was added to our DVD style streaming menus where a library of videos can be selected and viewed.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of North & Northwest Cook County provides resources that empower and heal abused children. They also provide resources to help prevent abuse and violence against children.

The nonprofit organization is based in Hoffman Estates with satellite offices in Evanston, Northbrook, and Streamwood. Through forensic interviews conducted in cooperation with local law enforcement authorities, children are able to share their stories of abuse one time in a safe place. The interviews are recorded for investigation and legal purposes. About 400 children are interviewed each year at the The Children’s Advocacy Center. Before this nonprofit organization was founded, children would often have to tell their story of abuse several times in less than ideal settings.

For this video production, the nonprofit wanted to raise money for its aging video recording system. Over the course of one day, we filmed several interviews and b-roll. In this video, we not only wanted to show viewers what the video recording system looked like but also why the system needed to be replaced. So, we used some video footage captured from the system and included it in the video to show the poor audio and video quality they currently get from the system.

After our video was played at the event, the nonprofit raised over $25,000, which exceeded their goal!
