HARRISBURG, PA – GK Visual, a Harrisburg-based video production company, is proud to announce the selection of Harrisburg Inspiring Connections Outdoors as the recipient of its free nonprofit video.
“We are thrilled to be selected to receive this incredible opportunity to have a quality video,” said Michael Horgan, a volunteer with HICO. “This will make a huge impact for our group. We struggle to tell our amazing story and the joy and appreciation the children feel for being able to explore nature, and now thanks to GK Visual, we will be able to illuminate Harrisburg area of this wonderful program.”
Last month, GK Visual opened submissions to partner with a local nonprofit or charity for a free promotional video. Nearly 30 local nonprofits entered into the contest.
“With so many entries this was a very difficult decision for us,” said Nate Kresge, GK Visual Co-Owner and Executive Producer. “Our team went through multiple rounds of voting before a winner was selected.
“We really wished we could have produced a free video for every entrant, as they were all very deserving. It was encouraging to see the amazing work being done by these great groups. Our hope is to make this an annual project,” Kresge said.
Kresge said the two entities will collaborate on the video, which will be completed by year’s end.
