How Are You Using VIDEO?
Emotionally connect to your audience with inspirational videos. Nonprofits, CEOs, executives and brands with deep-set missions can easily connect to larger audiences with this type of content. This builds emotional connections that go beyond most marketing content, leading to customers that love what you do and want to support your company.
Demonstrate the purpose of a product by telling the stories of people who have benefitted from it. Record users using your tech or medical product. You can even highlight the people who created the product. Show your audience why they won’t want to go another day without your product or software in their life. Whether it will make your customers’ lives easier, inspire them or make their businesses more successful, product videos can confirm the value of what you have to offer.
CEO/Executive Team Videos
Form stronger relationships with your gala’s audience by premiering a video that shares the personal journey of your CEO or a team member.

These videos hush rooms full of hundreds of people. You’ll never find an audience more emotionally connected and captivated than by a video that tells the story of a thought leader or philanthropist who has earned the highest honors in the room. Create honoree videos for your next nonprofit gala or awards ceremony, inspiring your audience to donate or emotionally buy in.

Storytelling Marketing Agency FAQs
Is cinematography important in visual storytelling?
Yes. Cinematography captures the tone, mood and style, helping to tell the story with strong, powerful visuals. We have crews with various cinematographic styles, allowing us to select the right team for your corporation’s event.
Why are you so passionate about storytelling?
Storytelling emotionally connects people to brands. It leads individuals to not only become invested in a brand, but to become an ambassador of that brand themselves. We love stories that incorporate personal journeys. This passion led us to start an original content series called True inspirations, which follows interesting people and tells their own powerful stories. You can view that series and more of our work here.

Storytelling is a remarkable way to help your event’s audience understand the why — the reason your company exists, the purpose behind your product launch, the story of your keynote speaker or why you are so passionate about your new direction or vision. You are getting people excited about you and your company by emotionally connecting with them and setting the stage with a high quality and creative production.
