ABOUT NADUS INSTITUTE
Making a promotional video can be costly! After years of telling the stories of nonprofits across the globe, the team at Nadus Films saw a need they could no longer ignore. We launched Nadus Institute as a way to give nonprofit leaders another tool in their fundraising tool belt so that they can save money and continue making an impact in the world.
Nadus films has been producing award-winning, feature-length, short films and promotional videos for over 15 years. Collectively, Nadus Institute’s teachers have over 50 years experience in filmmaking, writing, and photography.
SUPPORTING THE WORK OF NONPROFITS IS ONE OF OUR MISSIONS.
We’ve helped raise millions of dollars for organizations making a difference around the world. We also award a fully produced promotional video annually to one nonprofit through our Give-a-Story grant.

"Nadus Institute's online course covered all of the basics, including writing a narrative, production, photography, and marketing, to ensure you feel equipped to create videos for your nonprofit in-house. The Nadus team is so good at what they do! Because of this course, I was able to produce a promotional video for our ministry which will hopefully lead to more awareness and support of our mission."
"We absolutely loved working with Nadus Films! The curriculum was very well done and super thorough. We were able to make a video that will be able to highlight what we do at Hope Collaborative and help us to sustain the work that we do. We can now make our own videos thanks to what we learned, and the expertise shared!"
