Video production is just one of our core competencies

A growing area of our business has been in video production. Small-to-medium businesses are finding they can better connect to their customers through the use of adding videos to their website. Sometimes these videos will reveal a behind-the-scenes look at how products are made and delivered. In others, we show how to properly use or install products. The law firms we have worked with have created their own frequently asked questions video series to make a potential client feel as though they are already getting legal help even before they walk through the door. And, in a handful of instances, we’ve written, directed and produced stand-alone film productions to be used in conjunction with fund-raising, promotional and marketing activities

One of our most recent examples of a stand-alone was shot to benefit Advocates for Children, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, dedicated to helping children who are living in terrible conditions. Rather than create the typical informational piece, filled with dry facts, boring figures and screens filled with text, the organization asked us to create something creative and emotional to better affect the viewing audience. We needed to illustrate the deplorable conditions many children face and then find a way to turn it around and show how a child’s life can benefit due to the many programs existing under the umbrella of Advocates forChildren.

We Can Make a Difference – video for Advocates for Children

A couple months back, AJS Productions was approached to help a local non-profit create a video for their annual Spring Benefit. The runway was short and the assignment was daunting — create a short video showing the plight of those abused children in the community and how programs like the ones managed by Advocates for Children are vital for not just their safety but as a means of putting them back on the road to success. As challenging as it was, the mission of Advocates is near and dear to our own hearts and we began in earnest to carve out a script for the video shoot. During that time, we also had to lock down shooting locations, props, actors and other production elements. Even the smallest video shoot needs weeks of pre-production to make sure its many moving parts are working together.

MonsterBusterHeaderAs with our prior video projects, we pulled in Torey Haas, owner-operator of MonsterBuster Entertainment, who would be responsible for gathering the appropriate crew for the shoot. He was also hired to be the lead editor once the shoot wrapped and moved into post-production.  Our two companies have excellent working relationships and we took to the challenge of not just meeting the deadline, but coming in under budget and ahead of schedule.

And we did!

We are happy to be able to share that video with you now and hope you keep the subject matter in mind wherever you may live. These stories happen everyday and there are so many non-profits who rely on the goodness and generosity of those in the community to be able to continue in the service of their mission. We would love for anyone seeking any kind of video production to reach out to us here at AJS Productions, but, more importantly, regardless of your needs, we would hope you would make it a point to donate something to those groups that serve your community, often unsung and without praise.

Please feel free to share and leave comment, not just here on our blog, but on the YouTube channel itself to let Advocates for Children know your thoughts and whether or not this short video affected you in some way.

Thank you!
