Description
Husband and wife team Shirley HAN Ying and Chris Gelken created Ridealist in 2009 to produce short videos to showcase the efforts of grassroots non-profits, community groups and individuals who otherwise would not have ready access to professional media services.

Since then, we have produced more than 30 videos for NPOs in China, Hong Kong, Britain, Kenya and Uganda whose efforts are making a valuable and positive contribution to society. The productions were conducted on an entirely pro-bono, volunteer basis.

However, in order to continue this service, we also need to be sustainable. From mid-June 2013 Ridealist will re-establishing itself as a social enterprise, but with our focus still firmly set on the non-profit sector.

Our goal is to generate enough revenue through paid commissions, to continue our volunteer work for those groups who genuinely have no media budget.

We hope you can support us!

Scientists now tell us that long-term exposure even to low level air pollution may increase the risk of lung cancer, particularly adenocarcinoma. It is a pity then that the astronomically high property values in Hong Kong do not include breathable air. A few months after producing this video as part of a campaign to highlight the problem of urban pollution, the man in the mask (producer Chris Gelken) was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma.

Wendy's Story - A Survivor of Domestic Violence 

Because many women are reluctant to come forward and report domestic violence, it is possibly the most under-reported crime of violence globally. 

It is also probably one of the most prevalent. 

We need to change this. We HAVE to change this. 

Wendy tells us about her struggle. 

A dramatic journey from victim to survivor. 

Dialogue in Cantonese with subtitles in English & Chinese. Produced by Ridealist in association of Harmony House.

This exciting annual event will take place on Sunday 28th Oct 2012 at Tai Po Four-colour Forest Walks. Hong Kong Unison is a local nonprofit dedicated to promoting harmony, equality, and ending discrimination among Hong Kong's ethnic minorities in education and in the workplace. Out of every twenty residents of Hong Kong, there is one ethnic minority living here. Surveys show over 40% of them are suffering from unemployment or unstable job security due to the language barrier and a lack of resources in access to quality Chinese language education. In order to promote racial equality in the territory, Hong Kong Unison, a public charitable institution, organizes an annual hiking event named "Hikathon" to fight for equal education opportunities and quality Chinese education for all Hong Kong residents, especially the ethnic minorities. For more information on Hong Kong Unison, please visit their website at    http://www.unison.org.hk

A low-budget documentary film by Lynn Zhang & Shirley Han Ying about the water crisis in the North China Plain. It depicts the devastating consequences of water scarcity exacerbated by pollution.
​
The film follows a group of farmers who saw their orchards destroyed by water pollution, and their one-sided struggle against a major corporation and an unsympathetic local government to gain compensation.
​
Through the stories of the individual villagers and the predictions of local experts, we witness a paradise lost to economic progress, and the consequences of doing too little, too late.

Original dialogue in Chinese with English narration and subtitles.
