Special Olympics

At more than 1.4 million free health examinations in more than 120 countries, the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes program offers health services and information to athletes in dire need. In the process, Special Olympics has become the largest global public health organization dedicated to serving people with intellectual disabilities.


Create clinical training videos for the Healthy Athletes program to dramatically increase productivity of professional healthcare volunteers (and save money in the process). There were two particularly tricky areas of health care, and we produced two 15-minute videos that would train medical volunteers on their own time to make sure that all of the evaluations were correct.

Medical volunteers (Doctors, nurses, dentists) and sponsors.


  • 4 days shooting on-site in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the Special Olympics US National Games to record best medical practices when it comes to diagnosing and treating athletes.
  • Two 15-minute edited training videos
  • Management of creative team
  • Strategic pre-production planning
  • Visual adaptation of written manuals
  • Motion graphics & animation
  • DVD authoring
  • Behind the scenes footage and bloopers
  • Uploading to internet platforms for global distribution

    Two Parrot Productions assisted the Special Olympics in creating videos which would boost the productivity of the professional healthcare volunteers. The Two Parrot team helped create videos and distribute them via YouTube for global distribution in order to avoid the professionals needing on-site training. Two Parrot Productions also made short videos for each of the sponsors detailing how they helped the Special Olympics. Along with that, the Two Parrot team also helped create videos for the Special Olympics’ campaign entitled “Spread the Word to End the Word”.

    “It was a pleasure working with Jessica and Two Parrot, and I look forward to working further with them. Jessica is a high energy, innovative professional, who brings multi-media expertise, strong collaboration/communication skills, and the flexibility necessary for on-site modifications. Two Parrot has demonstrated a strong ability to deliver all contractual obligations in the most timely manner, has remained consistently available for follow up calls/correspondence and has helped us expand the reach of our clinical training videos to more professionals worldwide. It is my hope that my collaboration with TPP will extend into 2011 and beyond, given the quality of the products delivered.”
