As a video production company, we have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients – from construction to fitness, corporate offices to healthcare. Our favorite work, however, happens to be creating videos for non-profits.
Damar Services, an Indianapolis non-profit, provides a wide variety of services for families and individuals caring for loved ones with disabilities such as autism. We’ve had the honor over the past several years to create a series of videos for Damar, entitled “Difference Makers,” to celebrate the employees, families, and partners that make their work possible. These videos are showcased on their website but, more importantly, are also used during a breakfast to honor these groups and individuals. The videos are used to show the difference each of them make in the mission of Damar.
Celebrating those who make it happen
As everyone knows, 2020 was an awful year. It wasn’t easy on anyone, and the “Difference Makers” event was put on hold. As the virus wained in 2021, Damar contacted us again to help create the “Difference Maker” videos to ensure their incredible employees, families, and partners were celebrated for the work and difference they made after a rough previous year.
This year, we had the opportunity to tell 4 different stories — an employee, a business, a family, and also a beloved employee who had recently passed away.
The challenge of these videos is always time and what we can and can’t shoot. Damar works with a variety of clients who we aren’t allowed to photograph in anyway. These stories are about employees as well, so we have to move quickly to ensure we don’t interrupt operations. Obviously, these things aren’t insurmountable, but they do present some challenges for production.
