Sommer Filmworks' founder Ines Sommer has produced numerous videos for non-profit clients including the Corporation for Supportive Housing, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago, DePaul University's School for New Learning, the Hyde Park Day School, and many others.
Ines also has a strong track record creating commissioned videos about the arts – be it theater, music, dance, visual arts, photography, or arts education.

VIDEOS FOR NON-PROFITS
“Not only is Ines an absolute joy to collaborate with, but she is a remarkably talented filmmaker! The Arts & Business Council of Chicago had a last minute need for a promotional video and she was able to work quickly and efficiently to deliver fantastic results. Her rich understanding of artists and the arts community played an integral role in shaping the piece. Throughout the collaboration, Ines’ vision and direction were on point. I look forward to the opportunity of working with Ines again.”

Arts & Business Council of Chicago
"Hyde Park Day School engaged Sommer Filmworks to create a video celebrating our fifteenth anniversary to be shown at our annual Gala. Ines worked beautifully with our students, parents and staff to produce an uplifting video that had warmth, humor and poignancy. We were very pleased with the outcome."
