Non-Profits and Associations

Over the past 30 years, I have worked alongside hundreds of local, national and international causes and campaigns–helping to tell their stories.  Everything from feature length documentary film to short social media viral segments– it’s about capturing the why and what of your cause and building a connection that inspires action.

Non-profits, associations, alliances, movements and educational campaigns are all about the same thing: educate and mobilize action to solve a specific problem or meet a particular need. Your greatest challenge is adequately defining the problem or need and how your unique solution is the right one– then inspiring a desire to collaborate.

But words on a page– and often even photos– seem to fall short. You need to connect your audience on an emotional level with the story of those you seek to serve. And nothing connects us with the unique personal challenges of those in need– as well as the passion of those meeting that need– like documentary storytelling.

Working with Evan was an excellent experience. He is highly professional, fast, and a great communicator–making for smooth creative collaborations assisted through the use of user-friendly feedback technology. He was truly masterful at crafting emotionally-compelling messages around our mission and vision. The deliverables far exceeded our expectations and became the cornerstones for our entire multifaceted annual fundraising campaign and even for donor-appreciation event programs. Evan went above and beyond, carefully following-up with us on delivery protocols, ensuring we used best practices for greatest impact. We fully endorse his services and hope we get the chance to work with him again in the future!

I have worked with Evan Grae Davis for two years and, during that time, we have produced several poignant video stories.  As an organization that works with persons formerly incarcerated, homeless or with serious mental illnesses, we insist on working with professionals that are compassionate to the needs and privacy of our subjects.  Evan has a gentle touch with our vulnerable populations, working with each individual respectfully, with patience and kindness.  The final videos tell complicated stories in succinct, yet thorough, ways and always keeping the dignity of the subject intact.  I could not have selected a better video producer to meet our every need.
