As an journalism-influenced company, we feel the need to give back. B. Media House paired with the Camptown below to create strong story-based content pro-bono. This allows us to fuel our passion internally, create without boundaries and give back to our community.
We teamed up with Camptown after identifying a great need for visual storytelling. The goal of this video series is to engage potential donors with emotional videos in order to connect them to Camptown’s cause. We also created diverse, original content so that they can keep their brand fresh.
Kevin, a B. Media House filmmaker, describes what the week filming was like with Camptown.
I could not have been more excited when Heather asked me to camp for five days in the backwoods of Tennessee and film it all. The experience was a highlight of my summer!
Working with Camptown was incredible, and not just because this project combined two of my favorite things (film production & the great outdoors), but the people I was with made it truly special.
The friendly nature of Camptown’s staff took the work out of capturing their story. From day one, I felt like I was part of the team. Looking back on it now, the roughly 20 mile hike, uphill and down, carrying two bags (one for camp gear & one for camera gear) did not even seem like an obstacle between me and filming what we needed for the video.
From my first impression, the 8th graders from Cristel House seemed reluctant and annoyed as the van pulled up to our trailhead and we began to unpack our gear. Their attitudes quickly changed as we passed sights like indian caves and stream crossings. They took their time the first night of setting up camp, but they learned their lesson quick once they were cooking dinner in the dark. This was the first of many lessons I witnessed along the trip. It was amazing to see them develop from a group of individuals into a team working together without help from our guide. By the end of the three day hike, they were looking out for the well-being of the entire group. They learned a lot of tangible camping skills, but most of all I could see they learned more intangible skills like teamwork and leadership. By the end of the trip, I even felt like I had bonded with this group of people I had only just met a few days beforehand.
