Here's just a small sampling of the award-winning inspirational films and cause projects we've created for clients.
Documenting Grumeti Fund’s Enterprise Development and scholarship programs
Located between the Serengeti Preserve and neighboring villages is Grumeti Preserve. Over 300,00 acres of land that serves as a buffer zone between Serengeti and civilization. And while Grumeti Fund is legendary for its wildlife conservation efforts with elephants, rhino, lions and the other wildlife that occupy the reserve, it has created remarkable programs to fight poaching. While their anti-poaching patrols are famous, they have also invested in education and business training. Those who poach are often those who have no other way to provide for their families. Job training and education can help them find a new and productive life. These series of films capture the efforts of Grumeti Fund through individual, inspirational films.
This story talks about Pius, a former poacher, who through entrepreneur training with Grumeti Fund and a donation of 30 beehives, now is a successful beekeeper and shopkeeper in Tanzania.
This video tells the story of Grace, who as a young woman in Tanzania had no other way to provide for her family but by poaching. After entrepreneur training from Grumeti Fund, she now is a successful and thriving seamstress.
This video tells the story of Pili, who struggled until she received entrepreneur training from Grumeti Fund. She now is a successful shopkeeper who plans on opening a restaurant. She speaks of the hardships young women face in Tanzania.
This video follows the story of young Pauline and how she feels education will affect her life. Pauline talks to how young women can often drop out of secondary school because of cultural practices.

Glacier national park
Awareness of Glacier National Park is low. Even more so because it doesn't have many recognizable landmarks from the road as does Yosemite or Grand Tetons. For All Humankind shot a video that shows the glory of Glacier's backcountry and how people of virtually any age can access it. These videos were shot, directed and edited in-house at For All Humankind.

historical career work
CREATED PRIOR TO FOR ALL HUMANKIND
Dawn saves wildlife
During our advertising career, we helped turn a dishwashing liquid into a cause driven brand that also sells dishwashing liquid. Dawn Saves Wildlife created advocates for a brand that previously only had consumers. Dawn Saves Wildlife was a social media campaign, web site and seven award winning documentaries.
During our advertising career, we helped Citi redefine itself from a bank to a funder of change around the world. How would a bank born in New York bring change to that city? CitiBike. The agency we ran, designed the bike, the app, promotional materials and even created Saturday test rides for skeptical New Yorkers. This campaign has won Effies, One Show Pencil and was named Ad Age and Creativity's Integrated campaign of the year.
doctors of the world
During our advertising career, we noticed it was hard to engage those in the United States about the Ebola crisis who were unaffected. To gain more awareness for our client, Doctors of the World, we pivoted off a cultural impact point. During Halloween, people were buying Ebola costumes. Some felt this was cruel and tasteless. We decided to turn the year's most controversial Halloween costume into a donation device. Our communication: go ahead and buy your Ebola costume, just make sure the day after Halloween you donate a real one to Doctors of the World. This Cannes award winning campaign garnered a huge amount of free press, on air stories and, yes, donations.
doctors of the world help make the ebola fighter time magazine's person of the year.
As America started to lose interest in the Ebola crisis still raging in Africa, the ad agency we led decided to try to keep the efforts of organizations like our client, Doctors of the World, front and center. How? How about helping make the Ebola worker Time Magazine's Person of the Year. The agency and client gathered close to a hundred thousand signatures on our petition. Imagine how gratified we were when a month later we went to the newsstand and saw that the Ebola worker had become Time's person of the year. Stunt? Promotional campaign? PR effort? Whatever you call it, this campaign won countless awards and recognition for our client's efforts in fighting the Ebola crisis.
