Project Details

What We Need
  • An edited 1-3 minute video delivered in electronic format as agreed upon between the Professional and Organization, with HD quality as a master version, along with any agreed upon formats for final usage
Additional Details

Hello! We're looking for a short "explainer" video about what our organization does. Animated, 1-3 minutes and no live footage, something like this: Nothing too complicated to explain and we could provide information, photos and other content as requested/able. We're a small non-profit that connects private attorneys to people experiencing poverty so they can work together to solve legal problems.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have senior administration proposing the project, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have detailed information about what it is we do here, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to serve thousands of Minnesotans with family, housing, immigration, bankruptcy or myriad other civil legal issues.

Currently, someone interested in volunteering learns about VLN through monthly 3-hour trainings that focus on serving clients in poverty. We could recruit many more volunteers and possibly even donors if we had a simple, engaging way of showing anyone what we do and how they can get involved.

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Asset Exchange
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of vision and goals for video, as well as information about target audience
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional agree upon file format and length of video
  • Volunteer Manager collects collateral (e.g. raw video footage, photos, testimonials, media materials) to be edited into the video, and digitizes all the materials in the format and resolution suggested by the professional. If applicable, the Organization provides links to 3-5 videos it would like the professional to use as a creative guideline for the final product
Milestone 1: Video Outline & Script Finalization
  • Professional reviews assets that the Organization shared (including existing footage and proposed script) to create video outline
  • Professional shares with Organization and incorporates feedback
Milestone 2: Video Creation & Feedback
  • Professional creates video in agreed upon format and shares with Organization for feedback (up to 2 rounds)
Milestone 3: Final Video Delivery
  • Professional delivers final video in agreed upon format

Protect and promote the basic human needs of people in poverty through the power of legal volunteers.


Alejandro was an absolute joy to work with. He was responsive to all our needs, and the video he created is engaging and professional. I am always nervous to give feedback on a creative project for which we're not paying, but Alejandro was 110% responsive and we ended up with a perfect product. Thank you Alejandro!
