When the dallas chapter of America SCORES needed a video for their annual fundraising gala – the 2015 Soccer Ball – they turned to Anthony Burokas to craft a compelling video for a room full of donors. It needed to be upbeat and positive. It needed to show how the program positively impacts both the lives of the children, and the lives of their families. Plus it needed to be fresh and fun – like soccer itself.
By focusing on the soccer play and interweaving interviews through the video, as well as incorporating the kids’ poetry and music created by SCORES kids themselves, Anthony was able to craft a video that was clearly a GOAALLLL for America SCORES Dallas.
It can be difficult for a gay, lesbian, and trnasgender organization to find a company willing to help it tell its story. But Anthony Burokas stepped forward and worked with North Texas GALA for over a year to build and craft their story of support, friendship, and activism. Part of the reason it took this long was that the organization was actually recrafting their image- and changing their name, from the Collin County Gay & Lesbian Association (CCGLA).
But Anthony and GALA stuck with the project and redid sections of the video to fit the new message. This resulted in a video that covers the many activities that GALA does – celebrating diversity & enhancing equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender North Texans in schools, workplaces, and communities.
When Hope Park Frisco construction began, Anthony Burokas continued his involvement by producing a motivational video that was shared with all the volunteers and with all the future volunteers so they could see the enthusiasm, and the scope of the project – right in the middle of construction. Turned around in just two days, it was shared via social media and e-mail, as well as hosted on the web site for all to view.

We chose a combination of drama, as well as testimonies, to reach directly out to these women and let them know that adoption is not only an option for them, but for the women in this video, it turned out to be the best option…

When Music Together Dallas wanted to highlight the recipients of the Joel Schickman Children’s Music Fund, they turned to Anthony Burokas to craft the videos. They would be shot documentary-style in the home of the recipients. In this case, Ava is a little one year old girl who has cystic fibrosis. The family was gifted with music therapy in the form of classes at Music Together Dallas. They received several entire seasons and this video was to highlight the effects of Music Together on the family and see the family use the music as part of their daily lives.
