Mane In Heaven Inclusion Video

Mane In Heaven is a Barrington, IL based nonprofit organization that provides therapeutic benefits to disabled and able-bodied children and adults through animal-assisted activity and therapy visits with miniature horses leading to improved outcomes of physical, mental and emotional well-being.

We always love producing videos for Mane In Heaven because we get to hang out with cute miniature horses. Plus, we also have an opportunity to watch the incredible impact that these animals have on people.


Typically, the nonprofit organization holds in-person events where people can interact with the “minis” but when the pandemic happened, the nonprofit had to change some of their programming and expand what they did to continue its impact.

Through this video production, we were able to show how one nonprofit organization is making a difference in its hometown of Barrington Illinois and suburbs throughout the Chicago area.

PADS Lake County Fundraising Film // Craig’s Story

The video we produced for the homeless nonprofit organization starts with an introduction to Craig who is a former newspaper journalist. Craig describes how he lost everything he had, including his family business and his house, due to a series of unfortunate events. He then narrates his journey of living on the streets, struggling to find food and shelter; all while fighting depression.

Craig’s story is unfortunately not unique. Many people around Lake County face similar challenges and are unable to find a way out of their difficult situations. However, Craig’s story takes a turn when he encounters a nonprofit organization that changes his life.

While he was sleeping under a slide at a local park, a neighbor who lived next door found Craig. She was Craig’s good samaritan and told him about PADS Lake County, a nonprofit organization located in Waukegan, Illinois that helps homeless people.

The video portrays the efforts of the nonprofit organization in finding Craig on the streets and providing him with the necessary support to help him overcome his difficulties. PADS Lake County provides Craig with food and shelter, and helps him find a job that suits his skills and experience.

Through the efforts of the nonprofit organization, Craig is able to regain his confidence and self-worth. He is grateful for the support he received, and expresses his thanks to the organization for helping him turn his life around.

This homeless nonprofit video video production is a powerful reminder of the impact that organizations can have on the lives of those in need. It highlights the importance of compassion, empathy, and support in helping individuals who are struggling to get back on their feet.

Through the power of video, we were able to produce an inspiring and heartwarming story that showcases the resilience and determination of the human spirit. It reminds us of the importance of supporting those who are struggling, and the power of community in creating positive change in the world.

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.
