Storytelling with Heart
Origin Stories – Testimonials – Promotional Videos
Corporate and Organizational Stories
The founding purpose behind your business or organization
Does your business or organization have a compelling story? Do you wish you could elegantly and effectively communicate that story in such a way it helps your ideal clients and customers connect with you?
Utilizing my inherent interviewing skills plus storytelling techniques, I put people at ease in front of the camera and get them talking in a natural and compelling way. Once the media is captured, I edit it into a polished and professional piece to be posted on websites and social media. With technology the way it is, anyone can film a video these days; however the quality and content of that video directly reflects back to the brand represented.
Whether it’s a corporate origin story, the founding story of an invaluable non-profit, or client testimonials fashioned into a fast-paced promotional video, I help my clients proudly showcase the stories that matter to them most.
