    Rancho Cielo

    In the foothills east of Salinas, California, Rancho Cielo transforms young people's lives by surrounding them with adults who believe in them. To build support for that mission, Boots Road produced this video.

    This case study discusses how we created the video, why we did it that way, and why it's been successful.

    There's a lot of data about the value of Rancho Cielo — the programs it offers, how many young people it's served, how much it costs, its rate of success. As important as that information is, almost none of it is in the video.

    That's because information doesn't move people, stories do.
