Community & Social Responsibility

A conductor is the person in charge of setting the tempo and unifying all performers in an orchestra or symphony. Their baton commands and brings together all of the instruments to create harmony among sounds. This is why we have established The Conductor Project. The initiative’s purpose is to support organizations with missions that are in line with three key areas which we believe in strongly: education, arts, and healthy living, by leading change and bringing people together. Supporting the community in which we do business is a responsibility we have as an organization and we find it vital in effecting positive change and harmony.

To this end, Maestro Filmworks supports non-profit/charitable organizations by making our services and resources available in order to drive their mission. We know organizations need funds and writing a check can be beneficial, but in addition, we stand to make a larger impact by using our craft as storytellers to help organizations stand out. Please take a minute to read more about how Maestro Filmworks is proactively getting involved in the community and watch some videos on how we’re contributing to becoming the change we wish to see.

For CSR inquiries, please email us with “Community Partnership” in the subject line.

PROJECT CAVITE

The Foundation for International Medical Relief for Children, or FIMRC, is a Philadelphia based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of families in the developing world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. Through its network of outpatient clinics and partnerships, FIMRC asserts a multidimensional strategy that includes clinical services, extensive community outreach efforts and health education programs.

Maestro Filmworks collaborated with FIMRC by producing a short documentary to showcase the humanitarian work that volunteers are doing in developing nations. In this particular installment, we follow Project Cavite, one of FIMRC’s mission in the provinces of the Philippines where volunteers assisted in a number of ways as they made an impact on the local communities.

CLASSROOM CHAMPIONS

A promotional video we produced for Classroom Champions, a great organization that helps keep at-risk youth on track by bringing Olympians, Paralympians and Olympic/Paralympic games hopefuls (Athlete Mentors) into the classroom using videos and live chats. “A kind of 21st century pen-pal, each athlete mentor adopts 1-4 classrooms per year.

Focusing on their own personal journey, athletes teach about the hard work of training, goal setting, competition and perseverance. Using video lessons and live video chats, students are engaged with their athlete mentor several times per month. The program supports teachers by helping them incorporate these activities into their curricula, focusing on letter writing, reading, geography, math, technology, goal setting and leadership.”

STUDENT GALLERY SHOWING

We were proud to announce our first collaboration with Stay True Philadelphia through our subsidiary, Philly Photo Studio. We put cameras into the hands of inner city students and gave them some instruction on telling stories through visuals. The experience was both fascinating and fulfilling, watching the kids’ excitement and creativity flowing.

SMILES. CAN. HELP.

Our second collaboration with Stay True Philadelphia through our subsidiary Philly Photo Studio. We put on a canned food drive in the Fishtown/Port Richmond community by hosting a “Photo with Santa” day. Students from Stay True came and helped gather cans and participate in arts and crafts with the children that came through. At the end of the day, more than 500 cans were collected to benefit Blessed Sarnelli, a soup kitchen in our neighborhood.
