Blue Chalk collaborated with NBC News Brand Studio and their client, Mercedes-Benz, to tell the stories of three LGBTQ makers who are redefining their artistic industries.

In this video, we meet Becca McCharen, a fashion designer who draws her inspiration from architecture and urban design to build clothes that empower the female body.

Her label, Chromat, has taken the fashion world by storm, and her garments have been worn by Beyonce, Madonna and Nicki Minaj, and many other strong powerful women. With her “structural experiments for the human body” and her inclusive vision of fashion, Becca McCharen upends traditional conceptions of beauty and strength.

ClearPath is a foundation that simplifies the oftentimes complicated and emotional debate over what to do about climate change. The non-profit organization engaged Anthro Digital, a social media marketing and communications agency to help engage Florida voters in the issue of climate change timed to coincide with the release of the Papal Encyclical about the environment. Blue Chalk Media produced three videos: two about specific challenges to sustaining life in Florida as we currently know it, and a third for ClearPath’s partner the Catholic Climate Covenant. Each is intended to raise awareness of climate issues and push for civic engagement.

In this film, Blue Chalk profiles fifth generation oysterman Rickey Banks who wonders whether his son will be able to continue the tradition to a sixth generation. In 2012, Apalachicola Bay saw its oyster harvest diminish 88%. The reasons are multifaceted, but high salinity caused by an unusual regional drought and sea level rise are primarily to blame. Both factors are likely linked to climate change.

Carnegie Corporation of New York hired Blue Chalk to produce a short film about an immigrant family with experiences emblematic of many new to the United States. The resulting “Pride of America” profiles Claudius Zorokong, a 30-year-old native of Sierra Leone who recently graduated from Hamilton College and began working on Capitol Hill as an assistant to Congresswoman Niki Tsongas.

The film is part of a campaign released on July 4 weekend 2015 to celebrate the contributions immigrants make to the U.S. The campaign included print ads and video placements in major news outlets and social media.
