AAOM Annual Conference

The American Association of Orthopaetic Medicine is doing amazing things to help people that suffer from chronic pain around the world. Their Board of Directors invited Hildebrand Creative to their annual conference to produce a video series on the AAOM to launch their professional YouTube channel.

The result was a series of profile videos of each of their leadership to help other doctors understand the positive impact the AAOM is having with their educational series to improve patient’s lives. You can view the entire YouTube channel and the video marketing series here.

When did you get your start?

Do-Gooder YouTube Awards

We surely didn’t see this one coming… the people at Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry are just plain cool.

Come on now, simply producing their video was rewarding enough, to help them spread the word about what they are accomplishing here felt easy. Yet their reaction to the end result was quite special. The executive director and community relations director were so thrilled with the story we told through video, they asked our permission to submit the video to the 6th Annual doGooder YouTube Non-Profit Video Awards.

“Uh… well, “Yeah!” was the immediate and grammatically incorrect response. We are thrilled, they are thrilled, that’s the way it should happen, right? Anyway, we know that there are thousands of non-profits submitting entries. To be selected as a finalist is probably beyond comprehension, that’s fine with us. We’re just so darn happy that they felt compelled to enter the video, we are still smiling.

So, if by some long shot our submission manages to hit the short list for public voting, you can bet you’ll be hearing from us some more. We’ll sure be hawking for some votes then. Heck, everyone else seems to be doing it, maybe we’ll get to give it try : )

Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry

We recently had the opportunity to film the experience around Loaves & Fishes Community Pantry, the second largest community food pantry in Illinois. You might have a certain impression of what your local food pantry is like, or you may not even know where your local pantry is located. Understandable, certainly, but with so many people suffering through these past few years, the demand for their services is skyrocketing.

Enjoy the experience of what is Loaves & Fishes in Naperville. They not only provide much needed food for those who are struggling, they also partner with organizations that offer free services to their clients to provide not only dignity, but employment support and financial guidance. They genuinely help those in need in DuPage county to get back on their feet. The day-to-day operations to feed 10,000 people each month is staggering, and 46% are children. They coordinate a volunteer army of over 1,000 people that donate their time to the people in their community because they all believe that everyone should have access to the most basic need of food.

A truly incredible experience for us to be able to meet, interview and tell the story of  Charles McLimans, Jody Bender and all the wonderful people at Loaves & Fishes.
