Content Strategy & Planning
Casting (Real People)
The first step in creating engaging visual content is unearthing compelling stories that reveal a central credo or belief statement. We take great care in casting real people with whom your audience will identify, yet whose story will inspire them to act. Our proven methodology ensures no great story will go uncovered.
“The Credo Nonfiction team took an initial kernel of an idea and turned it into a beautiful six-part web series that has earned more than 17 million views and given a story-driven voice to our Facebook Watch presence. They found amazing stories and subjects across the country that fit our concept and pulled together a masterful production plan on an aggressive timeline.”
– Charlie Garlock, Producer @ Food Network
Content Creation & Production
Brand Films (Features, Shorts, Original Series)
Brand Journalism (Feature Stories & Case Studies)
From feature length films to 60-second web videos, photo journalism to podcasts – we capture stories that feel intimate, authentic and inspiring. Our decade of experience working with real people makes our subjects feel at ease, while the conversations and visual content we capture immerses your audience into their world. Deliverables often include video content optimized across social platforms, journalistic-style photography, written case studies and episodic podcasts.
“They were true professionals: from pre-production where they worked out the logistics so we could get to four different locations on budget, to getting stories that were honest and heartfelt out of our principal characters in their own environments, to creating magic in the finished video content through their inspired editing and music selections.”
– Rick Gibson, Creative Director @ Allianz
Storytelling Keynotes & Workshops
Purpose & Mission Workshops (Leadership Teams)
Storytelling Workshops (Communications Teams)
Storytelling Keynotes (National Meetings)
Drawing on the inspirational themes of our James Beard Award winning feature film THE STARFISH THROWERS, we’ve designed a keynote presentation and interactive workshops that help brands define and reveal their core purpose by highlighting real-life stories that touch the brand.
We’ve also recently developed workshops that helps brand communicators adopt journalistic practices in their content creation, allowing them to create content that feels more like journalism than marketing or advertising.
“I highly recommend this workshop to any leader who is looking to develop, engage and motivate his/her team. Jesse and Jen use storytelling to help attendees envision how to overcome challenges and inspire change. The workshop is truly impactful and the creative approach is refreshing, effective and fun!”
– Amy von Walter, VP Communications & Public Affairs @ Best Buy
