1. Now you can get back to doing what you do best: changing the world one mind at a time.

For example: our films have helped raise millions of dollars for our non-profit clients, including:

  • > Peace Health Medical Group Foundation: Video was shown at annual luncheon that raised a record breaking $500,000+
  • > Seattle Girls School: Video was shown at their 2011 annual fundraiser, and helped raise $300,000+. The piece has been so effective that they are hiring us again in 2013.
  • > Overlake Hospital: Shown as well at their annual fund raising event, but also used in press releases, email marketing, and at numerous local events to communicate mission. Total raised: $600,000+

We’re not saying video is the only answer. It has to be part of a cohesive content marketing strategy (which we can help with too) to make the community buzz. But with these clients and others like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, IFPRI, and UPF, we’ve proven again and again that we deliver.

Our simple Fundraising Package, for example, provides you with a powerful way to connect with your community of donors.
