Shamrock Samurai was brought in to capture the feel of the day at Easterseals 2017 Strides for Disability 5k Run/3k Walk. The footage edited to create the promo for their 2018 event and an executive recap which was presented to their board of directors.
Since 1989, Baker’s Drive-Thru Restaurants Safe Halloween coupon book fundraising campaign has raise 4.5 million dollar, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Easterseals services for children and adults with disabilities in the Inland Empire. A group of Adult Day Services clients stopped by to celebrate and thank Baker’s for their generosity.
In the Spring of 2011, Laurie Zagon, founder of Art & Creativity for Healing, asked Shamrock Samurai to create a video to commemorate their 10 year anniversary and be shown at their annual fundraising gala. The organization, a non-profit that runs art therapy workshops for children, teens, and adults suffering from abuse, illness, grief or stress, supplied a decade of completed videos and a collection of candid photos as raw materials.
The challenge was all the interviews and testimonials on the supplied videos had background music, making them unusable. The solution became, shooting a new interview with Ms Zagon and using that narrative along with stock images and video clips that illustrated the stories, candid photos of workshop participants, and non-interview selections from the supplied videos.
The anniversary video was well received the night of the gala and the event raised $42,000.
Realtor Kathy Schager had added a wine review blog to her website to attract new followers, but producing it herself was delivering a professional looking product. She teamed with Shamrock Samurai to give the series, formerly shot with her webcam and a desk lamp, a more “Food Network-like” feel.
