IT SCHOOLS AFRICA
Charity Fundraiser Film and Anniversary Film
IT Schools Africa were seeking a 15th Anniversary film showcasing the hard work they had done in Africa and Gloucestershire. They wanted to ensure that the videos showed the heritage and history of the charity as well as the green nature of the charity. They also wanted to highlight why there was a need for their charity and why it was important to provide education resources in Africa, and also to help the educational level in Gloucestershire, helping to avoid community deprivation through basic computer skills training, allowing people to apply for jobs and give them skills that help in a modern day society.
Knowing that a large part of the work the charity does is based in Africa we had to come up with a way to film content without flying out. We spoke to one of the volunteers who was in Africa and taught them how to film on their mobile. We gave them tips, prepared a document and explained over a phone call how to effectively create content on their mobile. We paired this with capturing and filming interviews in the UK, as well as supporting footage to help tell the story of the charity. As well as creating the anniversary showcase we also produced nine shorter social media versions.
The nine social media videos were shown at the event and led to £5,000 of donations from that stand alone event which were doubled to £10,000 through a government scheme.
WHAT THEY SAID:
“ I can't thank Dashing Bear enough for the care and attention to detail they took when producing a very special film for your charity. The end result is superb and more than met our requirements. I would highly recommend Dashing Bear Productions. They went above and beyond the original project scope and ensured we were totally happy with the production. They are highly skilled and brought our charity work to life, we were delighted with the results. Thank You. "
