Powerful, Effective Video Storytelling.

After School Matters provides life-changing after-school and summer program opportunities to more than 18,000 Chicago high school teens each year.  Mode Project created this short, inspiring documentary-style profile of two After School Matters alumni who overcame obstacles and reached their dreams. The video was the centerpiece of the non-profit organization’s most important fundraising event, its annual gala, which raised more than $3 million.

It is such a motivating and all-around wonderful experience working with Mode on our videos. Their entire team internalizes our vision and mission, and that’s why they are able to tell such impactful, personal, and moving stories about our work. This video in particular was the highlight of our Gala. I still have people comment to me about how they’ll never forget this story
— Michael Crowley, Senior Director of Communications and Policy at After School Matters

The Power of Real Stories.

We believe that authenticity is crucial to the films that we make.  It provides the feeling that, as the viewer, you are there witnessing the story unfold yourself.  Mode Project is committed to authenticity in film making. From our on camera interview techniques to the editing style and sound design, we stay focused on finding the heart and soul of each story, drawing out the emotion and universal truths which connect with and transform audiences.

Nimble Video Production.
For this project, we took a nimble approach to production. Crew was kept to a minimum, allowing us to embed ourselves into “real” situations. We achieved cinematic production values by using small form factor camera rigs, with lightweight cine-style lenses. We kept lighting naturalistic, logical and honest, using natural and available light whenever possible.
