We connect video and media professionals of all kinds with causes they truly care about.


Crews for a Cause

Every day, charities around the world are working to make a difference for the people, places and animals they serve. Their success often depends on the philanthropy of others—but how can they succeed without more awareness from the general public? That’s where we come in. 

Crews for a Cause is a nonprofit production group made up of production assistants, producers, makeup artists, directors, cinematographers and everyone in between. We specialize in creating short form video content for great causes in need of telling their story. Our goal is to bring together passionate and empowered entertainment professionals to produce, film & edit videos benefitting good causes and people in need—at little or no cost to them.

How it Works




If you're interested in joining our list of volunteer filmmakers, let us know a little about yourself by filling out our online form (there's absolutely no commitment required).

If you're an organization and would like for your story to be told, start by using our submit a cause form to help us understand what you're looking for.




As projects are brought to our attention, we'll meet with and research the organization to better understand its mission. 

We then send out a message to specific volunteers in our network with information letting everyone know about the cause. From there, we build a team of motivated professional filmmakers ready to work on the project. 




After we find crewmembers willing to take on the project, we'll help bring everyone together. We'll connect the organization with our volunteer crew and they'll work together through the process step-by-step along the way.

It's our goal to make sure this is a positive and fruitful experience for everyone from beginning to end.




We work hand-in-hand with each organization and cause to create customized content to drive awareness to their mission. 

We believe that by connecting entertainment industry professionals who love what they do, with truly deserving causes, we can all work together to make the world a better place. One video at a time. 




No Limits for Deaf Children

No Limits for Deaf Children believes in building the self-esteem and communication skills of children who are deaf or hard of hearing by providing the highest quality of services so they can reach their potential regardless of economic status. They also strongly believe that parents must be actively involved and educated in this process, as they are the key factor in the success of their children.

We had a so much fun making this short piece profiling the Lee family’s journey. To see where they started off compared to where they are now is just one of the stories behind the work of No Limits for Deaf Children. Go Andrew, YOU CAN DO IT!
