chicago nonprofit video production

Every nonprofit has a story to tell. The American Diabetes Association is a national nonprofit organization that works to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

For this video production, we were hired to produce profile videos for each of the four recipients of the organization’s prestigious Father of the Year Awards. The series of four videos spoke about the honoree’s accomplishments, their families, their life as a father, and connection to the nonprofit organization. We filmed the videos in Whitefish Bay, WI, Naperville, and Chicago. Each of the videos represented each of the honorees and their lives. The videos were played to a live audience at the organization’s annual event in Chicago.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of North & Northwest Cook County provides resources that empower and heal abused children. They also provide resources to help prevent abuse and violence against children.

The nonprofit organization is based in Hoffman Estates with satellite offices in Evanston, Northbrook, and Streamwood. Through forensic interviews conducted in cooperation with local law enforcement authorities, children are able to share their stories of abuse one time in a safe place. The interviews are recorded for investigation and legal purposes. About 400 children are interviewed each year at the The Children’s Advocacy Center. Before this nonprofit organization was founded, children would often have to tell their story of abuse several times in less than ideal settings.

For this video production, the nonprofit wanted to raise money for its aging video recording system. Over the course of one day, we filmed several interviews and b-roll. In this video, we not only wanted to show viewers what the video recording system looked like but also why the system needed to be replaced. So, we used some video footage captured from the system and included it in the video to show the poor audio and video quality they currently get from the system.

After our video was played at the event, the nonprofit raised over $25,000, which exceeded their goal!

RJN Group is a wastewater engineering firm that specializes in the development and rehabilitation of underground wastewater systems in municipalities around the country. Its headquarters are located in the Western Chicago suburb of Wheaton, Illinois. With locations all around the country, the firm has been a pioneer in its industry. Before reaching its 40th anniversary, we were hired to produce a branding film for the firm’s upcoming trade shows, website and social media channels. RJN Group is an employee-owned company. In this branding film, we wanted to showcase its employees and feature the company’s innovations.

We filmed all the interviews and b-roll at the firm’s Wheaton, Illinois headquarters with our DSLR cameras. We spent another day filming their crews in various towns (Joliet, Woodridge, and Wilmette). High Definition aerial drone video footage was obtained on a third day to film the firm’s Wilmette, Illinois construction site and various neighborhood b-roll. We also worked with location news stations to license news footage of floods for use in this branding film.
