The Art of Giving Back

Pioneers In The Golden Age of Digital Cinema®

Not everyone has a robust marketing budget for creative marketing initiatives — some have very little. For those causes that strive to make a difference in the world — and their communities — Richter Studios has consistently donated services to help.

The films featured below were partially — or fully — produced through the donation of creative services by Richter Studios.

To date, we have delivered over $500,000 in creative services to a variety of organizations.

UW-La Crosse
“Stadium of Dreams”

This piece has become the best way to explain the Wild Mile to the community.

“Richter Studios creatively captured the essence of the Wild Mile in a way which inspired and motivated people about this fantastic project. They have a unique ability to capture the joy and energy from the student at the British International School of Chicago, and distill that down to an exhilarating piece of film which leaves the viewer excited about the future of the project. Our team was especially impressed with how the film captured the whole vision of the Wild Mile in a way which reflected both our vision of urban habitat and the impact that it had on the children who are helping build the project. This piece has become the best way to explain the Wild Mile to the community."
