NOVAC: Baton Rouge partnered with local filmmaker Teddy Smith to create a series of videos for the Louisiana District Judges Association, designed to help self-represented litigants be prepared for and navigate representing themselves in court.
NOVAC and Breathe Video Nation partnered with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to help three local organizations, the New Orleans Women’s Shelter, NAMI New Orleans and Eden House to create video pitches highlighting their work, as part of the IMPACT 100 Giving Circle. The NOWS video featured above was part of the pitch that helped secure the organization’s $100,000 grant from IMPACT 100.
NOVAC, filmmaker Ben Long and sound designer Ian Painter collaborated with the International School of Louisiana to create 12 videos in 3 languages designed to connect incoming teachers from around the world with the practices and ethos of working at ISL. Big kudos to Ben Long for editing in three languages, only one of which does he speak!
NOVAC partnered with the Greenhouse Collective and the students of Collegiate Academies to help them explain, in their own words, some of the unique cultural practices at their schools. Working to both capture the daily life experience on campus and replicate Collegiate’s unique branding style, we created a set of videos that Collegiate used in press releases, newsletters, on their web sites and on social media.
NOVAC and Breathe Video Nation partnered with the Foundation for Louisiana to document their LEAD program, which trains a diverse group of community organizers in the knowledge and skills they need to accomplish their goals, and then allows them to make grants to local organizations whose work supports their community development. In addition to filming the workshops and interviewing participants, NOVAC also participated in the workshop, teaching the participating organizations about digital storytelling and using video for advocacy campaigns.
