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.

Samaritan Counseling Center // Nonprofit Event



Samaritan Counseling Center Northwest is a Barrington, Illinois-based nonprofit organization that provides counseling services to individuals, couples, families, and groups.

The organization was holding a holiday fundraising event at The Garlands of Barrington. Our client wanted the video we produced to not only highlight the event but also to serve as a branding film for the organization.

In addition to filming with our High Definition DSLR video cameras, post production included the organization’s graphics. We create a full screen logo animation at the end and lower third graphics, which complimented the logo design. We also setup a YouTube channel for them, which will host future video content.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago


It’s been an amazing journey for nine members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. With 19 Clubs throughout the city of Chicago, the nonprofit organization inspires our city’s youth to develop character, leadership, and a willingness to serve their Clubs and community. Every year, the individual Clubs nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s Youth of the Year.

The Youth of the Year Award is the organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service and academic standing. The competition gives us a rare glimpse into the lives of Chicago’s youth positively affected by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, and provides an opportunity to celebrate the success of its members, the efforts of its staff and volunteers, and the powerful impact of its programs.

The Youth of the Year Award competition includes several steps along the way, culminating in a public speech, which was held at a Navy Pier event. Those in attendance included Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The purpose of the video was to show attendees what the nominees face in their individual neighborhoods, what they did to prepare for the speech, and how the Clubs impact their lives. We filmed at four of the organization’s Clubs, filmed b-roll of various preparations for the competition, and conducted eleven interviews. Our services also included a local TV news station b-roll drop for local newscasts.

When the video played at the Navy Pier event to over 900 people, it received a huge round of applause (and even some tears). It has been an amazing journey and we want to congratulate Evelyn from the Cotter Club for winning the award! To watch a recap video of the Youth of the Year event, CLICK HERE.
