Bowl for Kids’ Sake – Big 5

Big Brothers Big Sisters teams up kids who may be having trouble at home or in school with adult mentors. This “big” and “little” relationship is a proven formula in getting youth on the right path. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is a fundraising event in which school and corporate teams compete to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters. This PSA involved all five Big 5 basketball coaches: SJU’s Phil Martelli, Villanova’s Jay Wright, University of Pennsylvania’s Jerome Allen, La Salle’s John Giannini, and Temple’s Fran Dunphy.

Rich and his team captured the essence of our project on day 1. He worked closely with my team and the college leadership to blend his expertise with our knowledge of the college and the product we wanted to produce.  Our experience with Tolsma Productions was first rate, and I recommend them highly.

I’ve been working with Rich and his team for several years. They are adept at taking footage from one shoot and creating multiple videos for multiple platforms, which helps me create cost-efficiencies with everything I shoot. The Tolsma team also project manages extremely well under tight deadlines—and they’re always a pleasure to work with.
