Bastyr University – Spring for Health

Customer: Bastyr University / Task: Fundraising Video

What the client needed

Bastyr University is one of the nation’s leading naturopathic medicine colleges.  Each year, they hold two fundraising events to support the school’s scholarship programs and free medical services provided at Bastyr’s naturopathic medicine clinics.  Promo Sapien was asked to shoot and edit stories about Bastyr alumni, students and faculty who are making a difference in their communities.  The video was used for fundraising events and on social media.
