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.

NODCC // Nonprofit Awareness Video Series

NODCC is the National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum. They are a California-based nonprofit organization. If you’re not familiar with what the corpus callosum is, we’re glad you asked! We produced a whole animated explainer video about it:

The nonprofit organization was holding their annual conference at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare. Our video production services included capturing the conference and breakout events. We also produced a series of videos that helped tell the story of people who are living with a disorder of the corpus callosum.

We worked with the nonprofit organization to identify people who would be interested in having their story told. Since disorders of the corpus callosum are so rare, hearing other people’s stories and how they’re navigating life proved very helpful for the nonprofit‘s members. All videos were shared on social media and received thousands of views, shares and likes within the first 24 hours. The first video’s launch was so successful (24k views in the first 24 hours online), we wrote a blog post about it.
