This campaign was a PSA project by Carrick Brain Centers. Many of their patients are military veterans, and they chose to highlight the invisible nature of Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress. The creative concept used in this project illustrates boldly the invisible nature of so many wounds taken on by US Military Veterans. Nate was honored to have spent time with Greg Coker, Marcus Luttrell, and John Wayne Walding as a part of this campaign. Greg was a special forces little bird pilot, and John was the first ever amputee to become a Green Beret sniper. Marcus is a former Navy SEAL, and he also wrote the book "Lone Survivor."

Bloom&Give is a fashion company inspired by the timeless beauty of handmade products. They pair modern design with traditional artistry to create beautiful goods for everyday life. They needed a promo video to introduce their brand, as well as other short, shareable videos on how to do a wide variety of scarf styles. Nathan S Henderson was able to provide a clean, simple studio setup shot in Dallas to match their branding and look books, while art directing the videographer in India for their brand video.

BENT TREE came to me with a desire to communicate the special nature of their pastors network and retreat. They are highly relational, down to earth, relaxed, and filled with the Gospel. These series of videos were made during one of their retreats over the course of two days of filming. Learn more about them at bent-tree.org
Christian Missions is close to Nate's heart, so it was an honor for him to visualize Peru Mission's work. Using stills and video that Nate has shot over the course of three trips to northern Peru, he's crafted an extensive library of media and finished pieces for the organization to use in communicating their extensive spiritual and physical work.

Carrick Brain Center / Cerebrum, a functional neurology medical startup, needed a regular supply of testimonials and other video projects. It was important they were high quality, economical to produce, and minimal setup. Nathan S Henderson was able to provide a simple and professional video setup on-call with minimal costs to film and interview patients; he also was able to supply quick turnaround when needed (in as little as 3 days). These videos were used in a direct-to-consumer setting on their YouTube channel to build an audience and spread the medical startup's story by telling the stories of their patients.

You know those ads that stream before watching a video on YouTube? In an effort to build greater awareness, Carrick Brain Center implemented this strategy because it's actually a cost-effective solution to build brand awareness and create strong leads because they don't pay for the ads if the viewer skips it. So we tried to just come out and say to skip, yet draw-in those viewers who have a connection with concussions.
We also created a "blooper" version as a side project to give a different feel as a bonus video for their YouTube channel.

In case you don't already know, Nate loves stories. The Lamar St. Diaries is a little showcase of his own story, little vignettes into his life. He was inspired to begin this "series" by Carl Larsson, the Swedish painter. Nate loves to execute a simple story as a portrait; and since his wife, kids, and their friends generally fill the screen, it's that much better. Enjoy the show.
Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Worcester, MA needed a video to explain their core values, who they are, and how they minister as a church.
