NON-PROFIT

We cut our teeth in the business working in the non-profit world. We have a passion for organizations whose missions are to make the world a better place. We understand the importance of maximizing every dollar and we work hard to showcase the heart of a non-profit by putting dollars on the screen instead of our pockets!


Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship

Equest delivers the benefits of equine therapy to North Texas children and adults with a range of disabilities and special needs. The physical and emotional accomplishments that the clients achieve are a direct result of the interaction and rhythmic motion that equine therapy provides. Riding a horse moves the body in a manner similar to a human gait, allowing riders with physical needs to realize improvement in muscle tone, strength, flexibility and balance. Additionally, the horse therapy programs allow riders to achieve physical, cognitive, social, and emotional developments resulting in improved self-esteem, concentration and independence.

FITNESSGRAM - The Cooper Institute

Fitnessgram is a fitness assessment and reporting program for youth, first developed in 1982 by The Cooper Institute in response to the need for a comprehensive set of assessment procedures in physical education programs. The assessment includes a variety of health-related physical fitness tests that assess aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition. Scores from these assessments are compared to Healthy Fitness Zone® standards to determine students' overall physical fitness and suggest areas for improvement when appropriate.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas commissioned a short film as a marketing tool in order to source funds to showcase the mission of the organization through a feature length film.

Project Synopsis: After months of preparation, with the support of a wide range of mentors, a team of carefully selected Bigs and Littles would summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. Throughout the experience, Littles will grow in trusting others, trusting themselves, and in being trusted; they will learn that whatever they set their mind to they can achieve. Their individual and collective journeys will be documented and shared to impress upon others that forming partnerships to solve problems, and taking small and steady steps toward a personal goal can overcome even the most difficult life circumstances
