Below are links to different projects we’d like to show you as examples of what can be accomplished when accessibility is built into a media project. These types of projects and clients have been especially influential in fueling our passion to create, support, and advocate for all media becoming barrier-free.
Caveat: Not all of these projects were created by Arabotz Media however, one or more of our team members where instrumental in their success prior to joining the Arabotz team.
Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services / Division for Blind Services
Told through the stories of people who have been supported or are being supported by the agency, Living with Confidence was created to encourage and inform people who are blind or have low vision about the services available through the Division for Blind Services. Created with audio descriptive elements and the target audience in mind, these inspiring and uplifting stories prove that blind people can do just about anything they put their minds to – including using power tools. Check it out!
SafePlace exists to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change. A series of seven videos, all in American Sign Language, were created for SafePlace to inform and educate the Deaf community on topics such as SafePlace services, domestic violence, sexual assault, how to keep safe, etc. Five of these videos are available for general viewing on SafePlace’s website under the Deaf Services area. These videos are completely accessible with multiple available viewing options and were produced by our Chief Mahout while working at AMS Pictures, Public Interest.
Office of the Attorney General
Another video that was written and produced by our Chief Mahout while working at AMS Pictures, Public Interest, Money Crunch informs new and transferring college students in the state of Texas about credit cards and they’re potential pitfalls. Informative and imaginative, this video was designed to capture and keep student’s attention in a loud auditorium during college orientation. Remember, the Office of the Attorney General is looking out for you and your kids. Take a look!
Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA)
Designed to promote TDA’s Summer Food Program which provides free, nutritious meals
to kids throughout Texas, this PSA includes TV and radio spots in both English and Spanish. High energy and fun to watch from beginning to end, these spots encourage kids and parents to take advantage of the program.
Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services / Division for Rehabilitative Services (DRS)
Throughout the state of Texas, DRS counselors support people with disabilities who are transitioning into the workforce or having difficulty finding or keeping a job. This video was created to support counselors and help inform the public about the DRS process, what to expect, and what is needed to successfully navigate the program. DRS works with individuals to determine what tools, prostheses, technology, education, etc., that each person needs in order to find and keep a fulfilling job.
More videos of our work are coming soon!
