A House on Beekman | 2019 RISE

A completely new kind of fundraising video.

CLIENT: A House On Beekman
ROLE: Conception, Pitch, Writing, Directing, Post
DIRECTOR: Ryan Patch

Storytellers Ink continued our exciting collaborations with A House On Beekman to create a video for their annual gala.

We wanted to try something completely different in 2019 from your average “fundraising” video, which is usually filled with warm tones, inspirational music, and pleas for help.

The idea was to lift up the people in the neighborhood that AHOB works who work hard every day to build successful lives in a broken system. It would show residents of the South Bronx and their everyday struggle, and how they were working hard to conquer them.

We completed this video on a tight turnaround and on an extremely small nonprofit’s budget, and are very proud of our work for AHOB!
