About Hand Crank Films

You’ve got a nonprofit that needs help. We’ve got solutions. Since 2005, we’ve helped nonprofit agencies, schools, foundations, hospitals, and more raise over 3 million dollars and millions of views of awareness. Hand Crank Films specializes in creating rich multimedia content that truly moves the needle for our partners.

Unlike the typical talking head and b-roll nonprofit films, Hand Crank Films specializes in making true movies, with docu-narrative structure. We do this to be sure your film stands out above and beyond the rest.

Our 10+ years experience working on a wide variety of banquet, service and fundraising films has taught us how the whole process unfolds. We don't just deliver a video--we provide a customized Content Studio that's all about leveraging video to provide stills, written materials, social media assets, press content, and much more. Strategic. Creative. Driven to help your organization tell a compelling story in film to see the results you're after. And we're a lean, experienced team which means we are more competitively priced than many of the big guys but with better fire power.
