Anixter Center is one of the largest Chicago nonprofits that serves people with disabilities. What started in 1918 with a need to have an orphanage for abandoned children has grown into an organization that now serves 7,300 adults and children annually through 34 programs and services at 35 locations across the greater Chicago area. Programs focus on providing those with all types of disabilities the ability to participate fully and equally in society. 90% of the non-profit’s clients are at or below the federal poverty line.

How do spaces influence people? What impact does design have on the way we feel? Those are just some of the questions Anixter Center asked itself before embarking on a remarkable journey that would change the face of their non-profit organization. This video tells that story.

Each year, individual clubs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of BGCC’s Youth of the Year. The Award is considered the Nonprofit organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service, and academic standing. Eight candidates competed for this year’s title. Each of them shared amazing stories about how the organization has changed their lives. We filmed the event, which had over 1,000 people in attendance at Navy Pier in Chicago. After the event, we edited the highlight video online and delivered 100 DVDs to donors; some of which had custom thank you’s from each of the candidates.

Pavlis Furs // Branding Film

We are very excited to share the branding film we just created for Pavlis Furs! The store is in Arlington Heights, Illinois, which is a Northwest suburb of Chicago. Angelo Pavlis is a fourth-generation furrier. He learned the trade from his father’s training in Kastoria, Greece; which is one of the world’s largest fur manufacturing towns. Each of the designs you’ll see at Pavlis Furs are handcrafted and handmade by Angelo Pavlis and his team of artisans.

We took a storytelling approach with this video and wanted to show viewers the true craftsmanship that goes into creating the designs. We used our DSLR cameras, Glidecam, and Jib to create this video. You’ll see many scenes in black and white, which we believe add to the old world style of the message. As visual storytellers, we couldn’t be more happy with the results. Enjoy!
