I co-developed this training to help non-profits who have enthusiastic volunteers, providing them very targeted training so they capture video to tell a story.

Our access to technology is amazing right now, but having a camera and an offer to film doesn't guarantee you'll get footage you can use in a meaningful way.

This workshop teaches the basic skills your volunteers will need based on the story you want to tell and the situation they'll be filming in.


  • Each workshop is customized to your specific needs.  Prior to training your volunteers, we have a Power Story Session and identify your video strategy.  This goes beyond the campaign video and includes looking at social media and ongoing campaign needs.
  • Once we've identified your needs and the types of events/interviews/protests your volunteers will be filming, we customize the workshop to address the types of stories you will be creating.
  • Training includes:  visual storytelling and interview techniques. 


Avoid collecting hard drives full of video that you can't use.

Collect meaningful video that will help you tell powerful, emotional stories.


  • Power Story Strategy covering your campaign and social media needs
