The Princess | A Make-A-Wish Story

In addition to wedding films, we love to share work from our sister company Pennylane Visuals (a video marketing company for businesses and non-profits). This is the story of Princess Nikolina and her experiences preparing for her royal ball which was held in New York on May 7th, 2015 along with over 800 guests. At the age of 3, Nikolina was diagnosed with leukemia. Today she is a healthy 7 year old who helps other children going through the same battle she once did. When Make-A-Wish Foundation approached Nikolina and her family about a wish, Nikolina immediately knew she always wanted to be a princess.

If you enjoyed this film, you will love the film we did for Make-A-Wish in 2014 called “Blue Lightning”

Blue Lightning | Make-A-Wish Story

Blue Lightning was produced by our commercial video production division for non-profit organization Make-A-Wish® Foundation.

Blue Lightning is the story of Joseph, an 11-year old Make-A-Wish® boy with cancer who wishes for a basketball court in his backyard. Joseph is a huge NBA fan along with his brother Anthony. While following Joseph’s story, an unexpected donor with ties to the NBA surprises the brothers with an experience of a life time. When the court is finished, they unveil it at a reveal party along with 100+ people in the community to share in Joseph’s joy. This story gives us a front row seat to what it’s like to plan a wish at the Make-A-Wish® office in Bohemia, New York.

Habitat For Humanity Story | Nicks on the Wall

 

Besides filming weddings and social event stories, we also produce films for businesses and organizations. When we first met with Habitat for Humanity, we wanted to create a film that would touch people’s emotions and also explain what HFH is all about. What better way then to follow a day in the life of an actual family going through the process.  “Nicks on the Wall” is a story film about Elizabeth and Brian’s journey to capture the American dream of owning a home. We spent an entire Saturday with them as they explained their experience and witnessed Brian building his own house while Elizabeth took care of their 5 children, including a new born.

There are many special moments in this film, but what struck us the most was when Elizabeth spoke about her grandmother putting Nicks on the Wall like many mothers do while their children grow up. Because of this special organization Elizabeth will now be able to do the same.

When conceptualizing this story, we broke into the following three acts : 

  • ACT I : The family learns about Habitat for Humanity and gets the lucky call
  • ACT II : The journey of building a new home
  • ACT II : How life will change from this point on
