Chicago Renovation & Development fills the need for a high quality, ethical, and client-oriented home remodeling firm. Bitter Jester’s goal with this project was to highlight owner Brad Ashman’s personality and his straightforward approach to doing business – plain and simple. This clip is an overview of his company and some of the people with whom he works. In the end, the videos we produced for CRD went up on their website. Within one month of their posting, Brad called us and very excitedly said "People call me and they want to talk about the videos! They've already hired me before they even pick up the phone! I love you guys!"

This video is a promotional product commissioned by the Park District of Highland Park. The video serves as a preview and overview of all that the district has to offer. It was decided early on that in-person, personal interviews would be the driving narrative as opposed to a more canned-sounding voice-over. The result is a mini documentary about the district and its programs from the perspective of both employees and park district users.
