The Gateway Foundation offers many services to those suffering from addiction to those who are in recovery.

Anixter Center Fundraising Video

The Anixter Center wanted a music video to show their clients living and working in the center. Our team wrote an original song and shot many clients moving to music and interacting with each other. This shows why Anixter gives people with disabilities the ability to soar.

Wheelchairs in the wilderness! A-Z Mobility wanted to show wheelchair users that there are options the going off-road in a power chair. The Big Bounder is fast and powerful, and perfect for the great outdoors.

FreeWheel, Inc. Marketing Video - 60 Second

Using a Freewheel on the front of your wheelchair will change how you view all types of terrains. Four cities and lots of rolling with a FreeWheel gives you a sense that you can roll anywhere, roll farther and roll faster than you ever thought.

A-Z Mobility

When Pete showed me his off-road wheelchair I asked him if he’d drive it through a muddy field. I didn’t have to ask twice.

Nonprofit Clients

Here are some fantastic organizations with compelling stories...

Tony’s story was such an amazing experience to work on. He is an inspiration and the embodiment of humility and tenacity. Cabrini Green Legal Aid is such a great organization to work with, the people are passionate and the legal assistance they provide for those who couldn’t otherwise afford it is unparalleled.

 

Neumann Family Services

We love telling stories about people who can overcome tough hurdles in their lives, and Neumann Family Services provides the tools for adults with disabilities to live fuller, more inclusive lives.

Chicago Metro History Fair

Teaching young people the importance of history isn’t easy, but the Chicago Metro History fair sure makes it fun. Through a specialized learning method showcase with storyboards and performances, these high school students show you how important it is to look back to appreciate were you are.

Corporate and Music Videos


 

Freewheel Demo

A great product for wheelchairs, the Freewheel allows users to roll faster and farther, over many different types of terrain and through all kinds of weather. We used a GoPro camera and got out there and rolled!

 

Keystone Aniline Corporation

We loved the challenge of working with a chemical company to showcase a new dye they have been working with that glows, helping heavy equipment manufacturers diagnose fluid leaks and make repairs quicker and more efficiently.

We also produced a Spanish version for Keystone's Latin American market. https://vimeo.com/97137376

Artist Interviews

Before hitting the road in support of their hugely successful 4th album "Blurryface," Tyler and Josh of Twenty One Pilots took a few moments to talk about their confidence in Shure products, performing to 16,000+ at Bonnaroo, and putting lights in mics.

During his 4 night, sold out run at the famous Ryman Auditorium, Jason Isbell talks with Shure about his views on what makes a good songwriter, having Shure on his “team” and what he enjoys most about the mics he uses.

Longtime Shure Endorser and Grammy Award winning artist Sheryl Crow discusses co-writing, parenting, her love of Shure, and the SM58.

Jennifer Lopez discusses the inspiration behind her Las Vegas show, her first time behind a microphone, and why the PSM1000 system and KSM8 Vocal Microphone are key to her Las Vegas residency.


Corporate Case Studies

We love helping our clients showcase their successes...


 

MasterGraphics/A&A Manufacturing

A&A Manufacturing was looking for a way to ensure quality control before the expensive manufacturing process. Once again, 3D animation from MasterGraphics helped them refine their process and save money.

 

Tango Marketing/MasterGraphics

MasterGraphics has a line of high-resolution 3D printers that they wanted to showcase for potential clients. We set up the printers, as well as their top-tier advanced color printers and demonstrated their capabilities.
 

 

MasterGraphics/J.P Cullen & Sons

When J.P. Cullen and Sons was hired to build a massive addition to the University of Madison football stadium, they used 3D animation to make sure it would all work before they started digging. We were there to document the process and success of the project.
