Video Production Support for HHS World Refugee Day Event
A young Iranian man came to the U.S. in 2012, not speaking a word of English, and four years later he owns a business. A man left the religious persecution of Burma and became a refugee case manager at the International Center of Kentucky. A Syrian woman had to leave her whole family behind, knowing her father was detained by the government, and today is enrolled in Bard College. NCC had the privilege of producing a series of short videos featuring these stories and several others told by those who have had to flee their home countries and make the long and difficult journey to the U.S.
In June of this year, NCC’s experienced and talented team at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Broadcast Studio coordinated and executed the entire production process for the videos, presented as part of HHS’s World Refugee Day event. World Refugee Day is observed every year on June 20th, and raises awareness for the struggles of refugees throughout the world. Each year, numerous World Refugee Day events are held to celebrate the millions of refugees who have fled their homes due to war, conflict, and persecution.
Earlier this year, we announced our new contract with the HHS Broadcast Communications Division to support its broadcast studio, video production, and live events. We deployed a knowledgeable and skilled team onsite at the HHS Broadcast Studio in Washington, DC that performs a diverse range of multimedia services, including scheduling, coordinating, producing, recording, editing, and delivering professional quality services and products, among other support.
We were proud to create videos that showed the touching stories of refugees who found a better life in the United States, and we’re grateful to HHS for presenting the videos during its World Refugee Day event and subsequently posting them to its YouTube page. We’re privileged to have the opportunity to continue enabling communication and collaboration for this significant agency.
