Showcasing BPI’s dedication to social justice with studio film production
Considered one of Chicago’s most tenacious and versatile advocates for the public interest, BPI Chicago is a nonprofit law and policy center with a 50- year track record of innovative and effective advocacy across a broad range of civil rights and social justice issues. Today, BPI is deeply involved in police accountability, criminal justice reform, housing, and early learning.
BPI reached out to Mainstream because their needs were two-fold: first, they were looking for a production partner who could produce a series of compelling videos. Second, they were looking for a production team to live stream their 60-minute long program video across multiple channels. Additionally, BPI knew they wanted an accessible event for their audience and looked to their streaming partner to deliver on that goal.
Because Mainstream was able to meet both their production and live streaming needs, awarding us this project was an easy decision for the BPI team. Having a one-stop shop, with a single project manager who led all of Mainstream’s internal teams, created a smooth experience. That meant they could focus on the things that mattered most: raising important funds to advance their mission and cultivating their audience.
Oh, and did you see the live ASL interpreter? He really understood the assignment and enhanced the overall event accessibility, which is always a plus!
