Chicago Violence Video

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago // Fundraising Videos

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago is a Chicago nonprofit organization that provides after school activities for Chicago youth. This video production series focuses on two stories: the problem that exists in Chicago neighborhoods and the solution that this Chicago nonprofit provides.

In the first video, we featured three main characters:
-A TV news stringer who knows Chicago streets and the violence that plagues them all too well
-An Author and Journalist who writes about race and poverty and is also the Producer of a documentary
-A Club Director who talks about what she sees around her club

The video we produced followed the news stringer at night driving through the streets of Chicago, a very candid interview with the Club Director about the challenges her club’s kids face and a sobering reminder about the persistence of Chicago’s violence from the Author and Journalist.

The first video was shown to an audience of around 500 people at Navy Pier. After that, the second video played:

After the second video played, they did a paddle raise and more than $1 million was raised to help the Chicago nonprofit! To watch a video recap of the event itself, CLICK HERE.

High Jump // Fundraising Videos

High Jump is an educational Chicago nonprofit organization that has a two-year tuition-free academic enrichment school program for 7th and 8th graders in the City.

For this video production, we were hired to create a series of videos that take the viewer into the classroom. Our client wanted viewers to experience the quality of education that takes place in each of their educational courses. For one day, our video production crew filmed inside various classrooms at the Latin School of Chicago. Our crew included two cameramen and an audio operator. With the small crew footprint, we were able to easily move around from classroom to classroom in the school. We also videotaped stylized sit down interviews with the Chicago nonprofit’s staff.

After filming, we logged several hours of footage and edited together the highlights from each classroom. The videos were then embedded into our streaming online DVD menu system where viewers have the ability to choose which videos they’d like to watch.

Erin’s Law PSA

Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn. “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program for students, school personnel and parents/guardians. Erin had seen our video production work online and asked us to produce two PSAs that would air on cable television and social media.

We received a message Wednesday around 4p asking how quickly we could put together a PSA. We coordinated a home and school to film in, 1 ton lighting truck & grip, Director of Photography, Camera Operator, Audio Operator, Makeup and Hair Stylist all for filming on Monday. The two PSAs were edited, colored, audio mixed, and delivered to the client by 4p the next day!
