Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago // Women’s Board Gala


In anticipation of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Women’s Board Gala, we were hired to produce a film that would introduce attendees to what the club does. We wanted the film to connect with the audience on an emotional level. So, we filmed with our DSLR cameras at two of the nonprofit organization’s roughest clubs. We wanted the audience to focus on the kid’s stories. In order to achieve that, our creative approach included interviews shot against a white backdrop. Final post editing included a black and white effect. We also created a closing logo animation where the organization’s symbolic door would swing open to a collage of video images and revealed their logo.

From our client: “As the client, I was amazed at the work Nathan provided. I have worked with him on several projects and he always gets it spot on-from music to narrative to visual. Beautiful and meaningful work as always.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago // Annual Appeal Video Series

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago is a nonprofit that provides youth with after school activities in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. As part of the organization’s annual appeal, they were mailing postcards that profiled specific club members and their personal stories. They wanted a series of videos that would compliment the mailers in an online multimedia presentation. Our idea was to profile specific club members and tell a story about their personal experiences with the neighborhood clubs.


We went to three of the nonprofit’s Chicago clubs to film with our DSLR and slow motion video cameras. We also recorded professional audio on location.

We edited all three videos in the series and worked with the client to deliver a seamless online visual presentation to its donors.
