The "I Am" Project is a multi-media collaboration highlighting the stories of Center for Human Services clients, staff, & supporters, through photography, video, a book, interactive experiences with the public, an ongoing gallery exhibit, & more!

The central theme starts with a statement “I AM . . .” Portraits & video of participants is captured in response to the prompt, “I AM. . . ” with words they have selected as statements of positivity, strength, and growth, such as:

I AM brave.
I AM in recovery.
I AM a dad.

Six of the participants were selected for video expressions of their respective stories. Each video portrait has it's own unique look, sound, style etc., reflecting the "I Am" statements of each participant, with the common theme of our shared humanity uniting them together. The entire project video series is below, including 2 behind the scenes videos. You can also see other media from the project HERE.

NonProfit / Business: About


El Nido Productions is a one-person, local, home-based business that developed out of my passion for visual storytelling. What this means for you is:

• When the project calls for it, I rely on a network of freelance artists & technicians who rival or exceed my own experience!

• Direct communication with the person overseeing every aspect of your project, from concept to delivery.

• Undivided, enthusiastic attention to all aspects of your project!

• A sense of zeal permeated throughout every project!

• Low overhead = low pricing!

• You can reach me any hour of the day, any day of the year!

Serving several local nonprofits & operating a small business since 2005 has given me a perspective about the essential need for storytelling by almost every organization. I have since decided to offer:

• Pricing based on the strong belief that every organization that needs this service deserves this service!

• The most flexible packages in the industry! YOU design the package for your own unique project, based on YOUR desires.

• Full cost transparency upfront!

• The lowest pricing for the highest standard of production value!

• Delivery of all original media files for every project!

I gained my wide range of artistic & technical experience by working on the sets of Hollywood films and attending classes at the San Francisco Film Society. I am also a certified expert on marketing by Vimeo.

I look forward to hearing from you! It would be my honor & pleasure to help your organization thrive!

Sincerely Yours,
Brian Bort-Zarka
