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!

If you know the unending energy of Storm, you’ll appreciate this admission. With seven full-time staff and an intern, this small Brooklyn New York based company spent the better part of a year quietly reinventing it’s web-based image. When considering that job was handled primarily by about half the staff, you start to get an idea of how immersive this experience must have been for those involved.
