Chicago Video Production

Graduation & Commencement Production Services

Based in the Chicago suburbs, we are available for graduation and commencement production services throughout the Midwest and the rest of the country.

Increase your audience size by providing at-home viewers the opportunity to watch your event from anywhere in the world. Family and friends can enjoy your event and interact with other online viewers on any platform. We will livestream a professionally produced show with broadcast quality graphics, music and video with up to 20 cameras from anywhere.

Crystal clear audio is important for audiences of any size. We’ll do a site survey at your venue to assess appropriate coverage and plot speaker delay patterns for large audience sizes.

Large LED Walls
Help everyone at your venue can see all the action on the stage. Several LED wall sizes are available, with the largest portable units at 13’x23’, allowing us to move to several locations in the same day, if needed.

Aerial Drone
Show a unique perspective of your ceremony from the air! We’ll capture live aerial video shots of your ceremony and include it in your livestream.

Graduate Name Graphics
As each graduate goes across the stage to accept their diploma or certificate, their names will appear on screen to give each graduate the recognition they deserve.

Manage venue capacity with our e-ticketing software. Prior to your event, graduates can reserve a pre-determined number of tickets online, request additional tickets, and distribute them to family and friends as needed. E-tickets are scanned on site with any Apple or Android device.

We can provide staging in any dimension or size to fit your venue. Railings, drape, and ADA ramps are all available.

Chicago nonprofit virtual fundraiser

Operation North Pole 12-hour Livestream

Operation North Pole (ONP) is a Chicago nonprofit volunteer-based children’s charity that annually hosts a holiday fantasy trip to the North Pole for families who have a child battling a life threatening/terminal illness. As a volunteer-based organization, ONP relies on donations and fundraising to operate. For the past 5 years, a number of Chicago’s most well-known chefs have hosted a gourmet food tasting event and raised a majority of the money needed for ONP.

ONP had to postpone its flagship 2020 holiday event due to the pandemic and also had to forgo its 2021 fundraising tasting event as COVID continued to ravage the country. Just like the parents of a child battling a potentially terminal illness, many of their chef-owners, brave each day not knowing if their doors will remain open for another day or two.

During the pandemic, we produced a free 12-hour live streaming telethon, called “Let’s Get Cookin”, featuring twenty-four Chicago area chefs who demonstrated their talents for viewers to see. It was a supersized cooking show to learn secret recipes and give back at the same time. All the net proceeds went to benefit the chefs/restaurants who have been so generous to ONP. Here are a few of their stories that we produced with the ARRI Alexa Mini:

Mane in Heaven // Fundraising Video

Mane In Heaven is a nonprofit organization based in the Northwest Chicago suburb of Barrington. It provides animal-assisted therapy programs thru their miniature horses. They travel around the Chicago area to promote kindness, empathy and well-being.

As with many nonprofit organizations, figuring out creative ways to fundraise became one of their priorities for this year. The nonprofit had used video production in the past for fundraising and marketing purposes but the messaging wasn’t quite on target. So, we worked with the nonprofit on messaging and created a storyline that would impact viewers on an emotional level.

When we are documenting nonprofit organizations, we oftentimes film soundbites or other material that we just didn’t plan…and that’s the nature of documentary filmmaking. You capture the moment. In this case, we had planned to document the nonprofit‘s visit to Shriner’s Hospital for Children – Chicago. The moment we captured with Phoenix was one of the first things we filmed there and that moment became the emotional peak of the fundraising film!

We hope you enjoy this fundraising video about a wonderful nonprofit organization that’s helping Chicago.
