Produce: Mini Documentaries

Mini Documentaries

Tell your story with an engaging documentary-style video

Our team works with you to develop and produce mini-documentaries that tell your most compelling stories. We also create written stories to accompany your mini-documentary and format them into beautiful and effective blog posts, email blasts, and social media pointers – all customized to your brand’s communications channels.

Producing Your Mini-Documentary

This is the work we are known for.

Our award-winning team of documentary filmmakers will create a mini-documentary that humanizes your brand and makes a solid connection with your audience.

There are many types of stories you can tell with a mini-documentary. We’ll work closely with you to identify stories that will move your audience, and build a concept for your mini documentary that works for your brand.

Types of stories:

  • Project/Campaign Stories – show your work in action
  • People Stories – introduce staff, customers, clients, partners
  • Awareness and Action – highlight an issue and action steps
  • Fundraising – inspire and motivate new donations
  • Internal Stories – educate and inspire your team

Let’s tell your stories.
