Gary Logan will talk about how he used film and media to build awareness and develop his non profit organization beyond its beginnings and got people talking about it. He is heavily involved with Nevada County Media and will illuminate how local businesses and non profits can work with Nevada County Media to develop their own short films, live streams or recurring tv shows to grow awareness of their projects. Gary is a passionate advocate for Operation Hands On and will be a great exemplar of how to use media and marketing to grow your idea beyond the immediate community.
Operation Hands On, Inc, (a 501(c) 3 – Non-Profit Charitable Organization) has produced an award-winning documentary film about how a small massage therapy clinic in San Antonio, Texas developed new techniques and procedures to facilitate the recovery of military burn patients.
Our film tells the story of 7 servicemen and how the therapies they received advanced their healing and rehabilitation in ways that none of them ever dreamed was possible. Over the past 4 years, the therapists at San Antonio Massage & Spa have been able to greatly improve the lives of our severely wounded servicemen.
Our goal with the documentary was to educate the military and civilian populations, as well as to get the message to policy makers so that these therapies will eventually be included in the recovery protocol for all burn survivors.
As usual a small fee will help support the Nevada County Tech Connection and keep us going.
