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.
