Video Production

Thaler Pekar & Partners has worked around the world, combining our lauded ability to elicit compelling stories with award-winning expertise in capturing dramatic images and commanding content.

You can see our short videos from the US, Ireland (here and here), Northern Ireland, rural South Africa and Cape Town, and Viet Nam, below and on the Thaler Pekar & Partners YouTube Channel.


“Gay and Lesbian Refugees in South Africa: ‘We Thought You’d Accept Us'” was honored with a Telly Award for Social Responsibility. This award-winning video is also being used in staff training by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.


“Ray’s Story: A Death Penalty Mistake – Witness to Innocence” was featured on Upworthy, and has already garnered over 100,000 YouTube views – over 30,000 in just one day. It is the most-viewed video on The Atlantic Philanthropies website.


Thaler reflected on gathering stories and producing “School Rivalry Turned on Its Head. Brilliant Things Happen When…” in Northern Ireland, in Hearing the Stories within the Stories in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. Hailed for demonstrating the meaning and impact of shared education, this video has also been given to every member of the Israeli parliament.
