Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago // Fundraising Videos

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago is a Chicago nonprofit organization that provides after school activities for Chicago youth. This video production series focuses on two stories: the problem that exists in Chicago neighborhoods and the solution that this Chicago nonprofit provides.

In the first video, we featured three main characters:
-A TV news stringer who knows Chicago streets and the violence that plagues them all too well
-An Author and Journalist who writes about race and poverty and is also the Producer of a documentary
-A Club Director who talks about what she sees around her club

The video we produced followed the news stringer at night driving through the streets of Chicago, a very candid interview with the Club Director about the challenges her club’s kids face and a sobering reminder about the persistence of Chicago’s violence from the Author and Journalist.

The first video was shown to an audience of around 500 people at Navy Pier. After that, the second video played:

After the second video played, they did a paddle raise and more than $1 million was raised to help the Chicago nonprofit! To watch a video recap of the event itself, CLICK HERE.

Chicago Non Profit Video Production
This is our second year following the Youth of the Year candidates for the Chicago nonprofit as they prepare for the culminating event at Navy Pier in Chicago. Our crew filmed at three of their clubs and interviewed those club’s candidates. We also filmed two preparation meetings, a final dress rehearsal, and multiple interviews with the remaining candidates and some of the staff. In all, it was five days of field production.
