Making a Video for Those Who Make a Difference

The Margaret Clark Morgan foundation has found a way to make a difference in the community, and it has a chance to honor the people striving for the same purpose. Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation is a group that works to make an impact in the world of mental health, arts and education.

Each year, the foundation will honor people doing just that, and TeleProductions is able to make a piece of that presentation. The award winners are interviewed, recorded and then those videos are shown at the awards ceremony.

Shane Roach, Producer/Director at TeleProductions took the lead on this project, and has done so for a few years now. Roach enjoys the passion behind the projects, and hearing their stories. “I have really enjoyed being able to record the interviews and craft a powerful story for the organizations. I am always moved by the strength, determination, and passion that the awardees have for their work.”

Senior Electronic Media Production major, Andres Kishimoto, enjoyed working with Roach on the project. Kishimoto believes that this experience working with TeleProductions as a student is valuable to his future career. “I think that experience is key for video production, the more shooting you do the better you get, working for TeleProductions I have been able to shoot multiple scenarios making me exponentially improve my shooting skills.”

Victoria Romanda, Senior Project Manager at Margaret Clark Morgan, enjoys working with TeleProductions and appreciate the impact these award winners have made in the mental health field, and world of arts and education. With Northeast Ohio becoming a region leading in the mental health field, Margaret Clark Morgan has plenty of people to honor.

One of Romanda’s favorite stories behind an award is about an organization called NAMI Ohio.

“NAMI Ohio was an organization that was critical in helping our Founder’s find solutions for their son. Often, mental illness not only disrupts the life of the person, but their loved ones as well. Our 2012 Compass Award winner has lead the nation in fighting stigma, creating family supports, and helping bring change to the community mental health system in Ohio, and to honor them for their work, given the family connection, was special.”

Romanda says that they appreciate the great impact, inspiration, and hard work that all award recipients have demonstrated towards similar mission goals of the MCMF.
