For the past 6 years, Lights. Camera. Help. has served our community with innovative programs designed to help cause-driven organizations tell impactful stories through video. This goal is the core of our mission. We feel we have done it well and we’re very pleased with the results. That said, we believe there is room for improvement.
In order to better serve the cause-driven community, the LCH board is currently gathering requirements and refining the organization’s programs and structure. Our objective is to make Lights. Camera. Help. more responsive to the needs of the diverse pool of organizations and individuals we serve.
While this refinement is in process all of the current LCH programs are being placed on hold including; the Nonprofit Film Festival, Learn With LCH, the Reel Change Film Frenzy and our informal match-making service. Additionally, Aaron Bramley, our Executive Director, has moved out of the ED role and has accepted a seat on the Board of Directors.
As soon as final decisions have been made regarding the plan for each program we will share that information. We truly appreciate the love and support you all have provided Lights. Camera. Help. over the years and we will continue to work diligently to complete the planning process as quickly and effectively as possible. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 524-7227
Lights. Camera. Help. is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to encouraging other nonprofit and cause-driven organizations to use film and video to tell their stories. We do this through our education program (Learn with LCH), the Reel Change Film Frenzy and an annual film festival.
Reel Change Film Frenzy: The goal of the Reel Change Film Frenzy is to connect nonprofits in need of films with filmmakers who want to challenge themselves to create a great film in just 48 short hours:
10 nonprofits are matched with 10 filmmaking teams (currently serving Austin and Houston).
The organization and the filmmaking team meet to decide on a concept.
A week later the filmmaking team produces a film for thier assigned organization in 48 hours or less.
The films are screened at the end of the competition. We award a judges prize and a people’s choice prize to the winning teams.
Learn with LCH: Lights. Camera. Help. can educate your nonprofit on how to start using video as part of your communications strategy:
Full-day workshops that teach you how to make films or work with a production company.
