MediaStorm produces two philanthropic multimedia videos for Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation
MediaStorm recently published two philanthropic pieces commissioned by non-profit organizations Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. The first, a fast-paced promo for Save the Children’s Every One campaign, was turned around in 10 days. The second, a documentary about the importance of girl’s educations in Ethiopia, integrated videography and photography from four producers in the field: Jeff Erwin, Owen Smith, David Evan and Stuart Ramson. Both were produced by former II blogger Tim McLaughlin and are well worth your time. Enjoy!
Every One for Save the Children:
24,000 children under the age of five will die today, many from preventable diseases. In 2009, Save the Children launched the ambitious EVERY ONE campaign to work directly with individuals, communities and government’s to stem this tide of child mortality.

“With only ten days to produce the project, the challenge was to quickly organize the provided media assets and develop a script that fit the clientâ€™s intended message. Additionally, since the footage came from all over the world in various formats and qualities, MediaStorm needed to standardize the footage, and in some cases, increase its resolution. ”
A Lasting Impact for the United Nations Foundation:
Ethiopia has one of the highest child marriage rates in the world. In response, the United Nations Foundation has established educational programs throughout Ethiopia that put girls and women through school, and challenge traditional thinking on child marriage.

“The UNF provided MediaStorm with nearly 45 hours worth of video from two separate projects to accomplish this goal. However, both sets of footage were shot to give a general overview of the issue. The challenge of the project was to develop a narrative from that footage, which evoked a more personal connection to the problem of child marriage in Ethiopia.”
