Get a Customized Film

When we launched The Science of Character, we offered free customized versions of the film to nonprofits around the globe. We'd put their logo and their message at the end, and it would look like it was their film, that they could use in so many different ways (fundraising, kicking off an event, social). We made thousands of these free films for amazing organizations. We no longer have the grant to do these for free, but we do still make them -- for companies, organizations, and schools.
