Video is the most powerful media tool for telling your organization’s story online. Your moving narrative and your complex issue can be communicated more clearly and with more impact using sight, sound and motion. The experts in fundraising and advocacy understand this, but how can any sized nonprofit benefit from these insights? This session combines a little art & science: namely the art of video storytelling with the science of using your org’s assets and existing channels to push your video stories to those who need to see them. Expect to see some great examples of nonprofit video, learn the fundamentals of translating your story to video, and review great new (and some old) tools for online video distribution.
