Storytelling helps you connect with your audience and get your message out so you can make a bigger impact in the world.

Video is one of the most powerful ways to do this.  All social media and online platforms are now emphasizing video.  Yes, video is one of the most complicated forms of communication to make but the benefits are huge.


Over the next 12 weeks I’ll be launching one video a week of a new mini-series, Stories for Change.

In this series I’ll be sharing tips for using video and storytelling for social change.  I cover topics that will help you get started so you can begin your next video project with more confidence of making the impact you set out to achieve.

Deep Content and what this means for online video

With of the rise of micro-content, we are seeing the rise of deep content.

Not only are television producers creating more and more binge worthy content, but now content creators are curating deep content by telling the many facets of a story through a series of articles or a dedicated web platform. 

People love to dive deep into topics they are interested in, whether that is through searching YouTube, using the web to research different facets of the story, or spending time on a curated site.
