Another year... another award-winning set of videos. This year saw a new diversity of videos from training videos for the Boston Fire Department, to book trailers, to hugely successful music videos, but the newest award-winners came from long-time clients of McElroy Films.
“Our entire team has a commitment to provide our clients with the best possible product while keeping our costs down,” owner and executive producer Benjamin J. McElroy said. “It’s always nice to be recognized for our work ethic and I couldn’t be happier with the videos that won this year.”
McElroy Films has won three silver Davey Awards in the Non-profit category for videos produced for Fenway Health, New England Pediatric Care and South Shore Habitat for Humanity. While the quality and production value of all McElroy’s videos are top-notch, the videos produced for these three non-profits were especially powerful in their imagery and message.
Fenway Health approached McElroy Films looking for a series of videos that would help them recruit volunteers for vital work in creating a vaccine for HIV. The biggest challenge was dispelling the myths about the vaccine while keeping the videos very personal and McElroy Films delivered with a 12-part series that focuses on the volunteers, researchers, and supporters that have worked the first trials.
“The idea behind these videos and why they are so powerful is the candid atmosphere we were able to create,” Ben McElroy explained. “We didn’t mince any words and no one was asked to say anything they didn’t believe. Their interviews were all from the heart.”
A series of videos produced for New England Pediatric Care had the same powerful focus.
“The Family video was just what we wanted to help to tell our story,” said Ellen O’Gorman, Executive Director at New England Pediatric Care. “Having our families share their experiences from how they came to choose our facility to how they are now a part of our NEPC family really hits home. We know that our staff and exceptional care makes a difference in the life of their child, but it is more meaningful when the families tell their own story. The team at McElroy helped make this process easy when we were making the video. We are very pleased with the final product.”
When the South Shore Habitat for Humanity looked to celebrate a milestone 25 years and the building of over 50 homes for families in need, they turned to McElroy Films to commemorate the anniversary. What resulted was a Davey-Award caliber video.
“South Shore Habitat for Humanity wishes to congratulate McElroy Films for their achievement in receiving the Davey Award,” said Executive Director, Martine Taylor, “and for their contribution to this affiliate helping us to further our mission and deliver more homes to families across the south shore.”
The best part of another award winning year for McElroy Films, isn’t necessarily trophies on the shelf. “Being recognized for the hard work and commitment our team carries into every project is great,” said Ben McElroy, “but even better is our success at drawing attention to these worthy causes. That is the real victory.”
