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.

New Trier High School // New Building

Ask anyone about the importance of their home and you’ll get many different responses. So, we asked New Trier High School students, staff and board members about the importance of their school. Their eyes lit up and you could see the excitement when they started to talk about their new building. No construction project is ever easy but the amazing transformation that took place on New Trier Township High School District 203‘s campus is a story that had to be captured on video.

We produced a storytelling-based video that focused on the challenges of their current building, the process of designing new spaces, and the opportunities these new spaces will provide for the staff, students and community of New Trier High School.

We filmed for one full day at New Trier High School‘s Winnetka campus with our Sony A7Sii High Definition cameras and 3-axis gimbal. We filmed all of the interviews, b-roll, and timelapses. Additional construction photos and footage for the video production were provided by the client.

The video was shown at the new building’s ribbon cutting event in Winnetka and also shared on the school’s social media accounts and website.

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.
