The Triangle Heart Ball is an event that celebrates those who embody and help equip the American Heart Association to fulfill its mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Each year they highlight the story of a cardiac survivor who got another chance at life thanks to the work of the AHA.

For the past several years, we have had the pleasure of capture the stories of real people who have been positively affected by the work of the American Heart Association through videos we create for their annual Heart Ball. Stories like this are deeply personal and we were honored to be able to share and celebrate each story as an inspiration to our team and the entire community

Austin's Story

The American Heart Association focused their attention on stroke awareness at this year's event. Quite young to be the face of a stroke, Austin exhibits so much resilience and fight in his attitude as we captured his story.

Triangle Go Red for Women

The American Heart Association of the Triangle supports the Go Red for Women movement in the Triangle by providing a platform for women and their families to lead healthier lives. We had the honor to meet three local families and hear their powerful stories of fighting cardiovascular disease.

The Spivey Family's Story

Through the American Heart Association advocacy work, CPR has been added as a requirement in Triangle area schools. This life-saving program has helped save many lives, and we had the opportunity to capture the Spivey family’s impactful story.

Brett's Story

Brett’s story of surviving multiple heart attacks is a powerful example of the life saving second chances that come from awareness of heart attack symptoms.

“When our organization was faced with adjusting from our annual in person fundraising luncheon to a virtual event, we had little experience with hiring a company to produce this level of work. The turning point that inspired us to have faith in Amazing Studios was viewing examples of their other work, their clear connection with our mission, their supreme willingness to flex and bend based on multiple people starring in the video, multiple scripts to craft, multiple filming locations and lots of cooks in the SAFEchild kitchen. They also met a very aggressive timeline. I also had faith they would help us utilize a longer shelf life and therefore return on our investment by separating out pieces of the video in a way that they live impactfully on our website and we use all the time when hosting smaller virtual events or training. I used both of our featured story pieces recently - one when I live streaming to an audience and the other for a community stakeholders convening. That’s two intentional uses in just one week - 6 months after our initial virtual event. We also had the ability to share the video in its entirety to those who could not attend the scheduled first viewing for the virtual luncheon. Your responsiveness was always rapid and on point. We likely wore you out, but you never let that on. You outwardly displayed that we were a top priority and quite frankly that’s what our community’s children deserve.”
