Pads Lake County is a nonprofit organization based in the North and Northwest suburbs of Chicago. PADS provides immediate, critical services to those who are homeless. The purpose of this video production was to connect viewers emotionally to the nonprofit‘s mission. The video was going to premiere at their upcoming fundraising event. To do that, we worked with our client to help identify a case study video story. Because they help so many people everyday, it was challenging to find THE BEST story. We even presented the possibility of filming several client stories and combining them into one fundraising video.

//THE STORY//
It all started when PADS Lake Co. received a call that two people were living in the woods behind a building in Waukegan, Illinois. What transpired is a story of compassion and an opportunity for one man to revisit his love of music.

//How We Filmed It//
Over the course of one day, we filmed Carl + Adrienne’s Story. We interviewed them at their new home, filmed some footage of Carl playing his violin outdoors and also filmed the miracle PADS worker (Melvin) who drives around looking for homeless in Lake County. We also filmed some aerial drone video footage of the area!

High Jump is a Chicago nonprofit organization that provides tuition-free academic enrichment programs for 7th and 8th graders in Chicago Public Schools. We were hired to produce a fundraising video for their annual gala.

Over the course of two days, our video production crew filmed at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools campus in Chicago. We worked with our client to identify students who could appear on camera and share their stories.

The event exceeded expectations for fundraising – the final tally was $960,000; higher than their original goal of $875,000! To check out some of the other nonprofit fundraising videos we have produced, CLICK HERE.
