We work with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on an annual basis to create videos for their Man and Woman of the Year fundraising campaign. Telling the stories of the kids being honored during this time is always an extremely rewarding and emotional experience.  It’s amazing to speak with these resilient children who have battled so much adversity. Its a cliche, but they teach us lessons every year on how to live our own lives in a better way. Morgan and her parents were amazing to spend the day with. People should take inspiration from the amount of humor, heart, and warmth their family puts on display.

Morgan’s mother delivers a moving and powerful plea for LLS’ mission.

The shoots are not without their challenges though. Working with Non-Profits almost always means tight budgets and short timelines and this was no different. They are long days and we have to scramble to get everything we need, but we’ve found that if we are constantly communicating we can make the best of it.

While shooting we knew that the video would be an emotional one, but during the editing process, each one of us who worked on it was in tears. Morgan’s mother delivers a moving and powerful plea for LLS’ mission. Its something no copywriter or scripted dialogue could ever match. It illustrates perfectly why video testimonials are the most effective way to tell an organizations story.

“One of the best in the business. Adam is extremely talented in helping organizations telling meaningful, poignant and impactful stories. The videos are beautifully crafted and Adam is a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend him enough!”
