Penn State Dance Marathon (THON)

In 1994 Creative Visual Productions produced the first of its kind THON Souvenir Video. This video chronicled the 48 hour dance marathon which raised 1.2 million dollars. Since that time Thon has grown into the world’s largest student-run philanthropy raising $9.5 million in 2011 and over $78 million since it’s inception 39 years ago. Creative Visual Productions 70 minute professionally edited dvd has captured the line dances, interviews, theme hours, pep rally, family hour, mail call and final hours for the last eighteen years. The DVD also includes footage of the Thon 5K, Family Carnival, and other pre-Thon events. The Thon Souvenir dvd captures the smiles, the laughter, the delirium and the tears of your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Throughout the years Creative Visual Productions has produced multiple promo videos and also have Thon Video theatre offering six of the best segments from the Thon dvd online.

Rutgers University Dance Marathon

Rutgers University had Creative Visual Productions produce and package a Souvenir DVD for their Dance Marathon benefiting the Institute for Children with Cancer & Blood Disorders. Our production crew captured footage from their 32 hour Dance Marathon and edited together a 50 minute souvenir dvd of the best parts of the weekend featuring participant interviews, the major activities and all the great memories for this worthy cause. Once the footage was imported into Creative Visual Productions nonlinear editing systems, a special effect open, animated titles with customized logos and background music was added to complete this top-notch production. Creative Visual Productions also produced a three minute promotional DVD that was very motion graphic intensive and captured the feel, emotion and best moments of the entire event.

Indiana University & Florida State Dance Marathon

Creative Visual Productions has also produced Dance Marathon Videos for Indiana University and Florida State University.

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for making our video this year. The addition of the video is really going to help in upcoming years with advertising and promotions. Creative Visual Productions encompassed all the facets of the Marathon which will be useful in portraying the Marathon to potential sponsors. I appreciate the time and work you spent both at the Marathon and afterwards in the actual production of the video. Again, thank you for a tremendous job.Kat Stewart
