The best stories are the ones that touch you deeply. Those are the stories that connect us, that shift us in some way. If you’re advocating for social change, those are the stories that can change hearts and minds. That’s why a good personal story is the best way to communicate what you do. A story that grabs your attention and builds empathy will be memorable, and create real and lasting change.
We can help you tell those stories.
Short videos, up to three minutes long, are perfect for getting your message across social media networks. A beautifully composed video focussed around a clear message will be powerful and easy to share. It should have impact, just like the work you do.
Here’s an example: Something Big
Fadak Alfayad started her own campaign to change the conversation about refugees. We worked with her to make some stories about her personal journey, to explain why it was important for her to speak out about the work she does. See some behind the scenes on Fadak’s Project Page.
Some stories need more detail, especially if they are educational videos, evaluation tools, reports or presentations. Personal stories reaffirm your messaging by connecting your work with real outcomes.
Here’s an example: Aarli
Alex worked with the Bardi Jawi Rangers and the ABC in the Kimberley to make this video. It weaves together multiple objectives; language resource, environmental report, cultural knowledge, skill sharing and a literacy program. Aarli is an example of how you can make videos that tick more than one box.
Alex's story telling process is elegant, eloquent, and accurate. Her superlative writing skills, creativity and dedication is evident in her uncanny ability to communicate with the wider audience.
