IRSSS Donors Video

Project Summary

The Indian Residential School Survivors Society (IRSSS) was looking to inform potential donors of the work they’ve done and continue to do in the communities they serve, which is to provide support to residential school survivors and those affected by intergenerational trauma.

Our team was commissioned with the creation of a documentary-style video to attract new donors for the organization. Production brought us all the way to beautiful Prince George to film one of their outreach workers going “into community” to provide counselling. We also filmed in their office in Vancouver and a ceremony at Ambleside Beach.

The main point of the story was to showcase their approach to healing, which is all about prayer, connection to land, and community, so our experience and sensitivity in working with First Nations groups helped build trust with our participants and were instrumental in navigating this project.

The final video was successful in painting a general picture of what they do and, more importantly, in giving the viewer a meaningful impression of the spirit of the work and the people who are doing it.
