USAID: Scaling Up Renewable Energy

We worked with Tetra Tech and USAID to develop this motion graphics explainer video highlighting USAID’s Scaling Up Renewable Energy (SURE) program that helps developing nations deploy renewable energy within their borders. Narrative Media took on concept development, script writing and production for this project.

Main Line Health: Care in a Click Website Launch

We produced this video for Main Line Health to show off some of the features of their new website. 

Independence Blue Cross: Know Your Mind

We worked with SteegeThomson Communications to produce a series of spots for Independence Blue Cross for their Know Your Mind campaign. This one incorporates animation into some graphics that SteegeThomson Communications had designed for the campaign. 

Cooper University Health Care: Patient Access

We created this video to help Cooper University Health Care explain their new patient access system to the health care system’s Board of Trustees. For this example, we chose to use 2D animation and voiceover to tell the story.

AARP: Secure Choice

We produced this video with AARP to promote a new retirement savings program called Secure Choice. In this video, we featured both on-screen talent and 2D animation. AARP preferred to feature their volunteers in this video rather than professional actors, so the delivery is a bit less polished in a few cases. If we decided to go in this direction with our project, I would recommend hiring a professional actor.

We were hired for this spot to help the client bring their vision to life.

Case Study: Stories in Care: An Oral History of Covid-19

, ,
Late in 2020, Cooper University Healthcare reached out to Narrative Media in hopes of obtaining creative support for a project they’d initially conceptualized internally. Wanting to offer their recognition and deep gratitude for the countless hours and efforts contributed by their doctors, nurses, technicians, and staff, Cooper’s hope was that they could somehow encapsulate all the highs and lows of this trying, “all hands on deck,” year.

Case Study: Making Rowan University Unstoppable

In the winter of 2020, Rowan University was planning for the coming Fall Academic Semester. Student applications had been sent in, acceptance letters were about to go out, and now the wait began.

State of NJ: Safe Haven PSA

, ,
Narrative Media was commissioned to produce a series of 60, 30 and 15 second PSAs, for the NJ Department of Children and Families. The PSAs highlight their Safe Haven program that allows mothers of infant children to legally, safely and anonymously leave their children in care of The State at any hospital, fire station, police station or rescue squad if they are unable to care for the children themselves. The spots were promoted through paid marketing on social media and with earned media press events featuring the First Lady of the State of NJ. The spots have made well over 1 million media impressions to date. Narrative Media is currently working with the Department of Children and Families to produce Spanish language versions of the spots to broaden their impact.

AARP: Livable Communities

, ,
We worked with AARP to highlight several of their livable community projects throughout the state of NJ. A livable community is one that is safe and secure, has affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and offers supportive community features and services. Once in place, those resources enhance personal independence; allow residents to age in place; and foster residents' engagement in the community's civic, economic, and social life.
