Habitat For Humanity

Nicks on the Wall | A Habitat For Humanity Story

Produced by Pennylane Visuals

When we first met with Habitat for Humanity, we wanted to create a film that would touch people's emotions and also explain what HFH is all about. What better way then to follow a day in the life of an actual family going through the process.  "Nicks on the Wall" is a story film about Elizabeth and Brian's journey to capture the American dream of owning a home. We spent an entire Saturday with them as they explained their experience and witnessed Brian building his own house while Elizabeth took care of their 5 children, including a new born.

There are many special moments in this film, but what struck us the most was when Elizabeth spoke about her grandmother putting Nicks on the Wall like many mothers do while their children grow up. Because of this special organization Elizabeth will now be able to do the same.

[When conceptualizing this story, we broke into the following three acts :

ACT I : The family learns about Habitat for Humanity and gets the lucky call
ACT II : The journey of building a new home
ACT II : How life will change from this point on
