Stone Soup Venture
video & media production for foundations and nonprofits
Proof that when everyone contributes a little, a greater good is achieved.
The purpose and mission of 'Stone Soup Venture'...
is to produce for Colorado foundations and non-profit organizations, custom-made videos that tell their story.
Effectively communicate your mission of supporting communities. There was a time when your foundation did not exist so what happened, why, how and who made it come to be? While the story may available as text, imagine how powerful and wonderful it would be to have it available as a movie! With the use of interviews, testimonials, new and archival photos, film, video etc. the wonderful story of why, what and who you are can be shared with the world.
For Nonprofit Organizations:
The same is also true, but additionally you can effectively communicate your needs to the community and funders. A video provides a user friendly tool that actually makes you more effective. It's no secret that when given the opportunity to listen to the personal stories of others empathy and understanding is achieved much easier. Video allows the real-life stories of those your organization has comforted to be seen and heard by individuals eager to listen and in a position to help. How has what your organization done changed lives for the better? With the inclusion of on & off-camera interviews, short video clips, still photos and more the entire story of what you do and why you must continue can be clearly understood by anyone in just moments. Owning a video makes it possible for your service organization to be better able to seek contributions in today’s technological world. An informative promotional video assists potential donors in making positive decisions.
While some have responded by saying...
"Our story is already available in text so we don't need a movie" the answer is simple... If that were true film would not have been invented and books would be societies only form of entertainment media. The simple fact is that when your story is told on film by those who know it best, your options become limitless and the impact is huge.
Promoting your video with Social Media:
This fact alone is one of the best reasons to have a video. With Internet social media such as Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Linkedin, Quora, Stumbleupon and so many more, the ability to share what is going on at your organization everyday with the world has never been easier.
One of the most important services we provide...
is to make your organization present on all the major social media sites. Not just once or twice a year, but several times each week! We believe- If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got. It's time to do something you've never done before and we are willing and able to make it happen.
Finally, we have been engaged in providing these services to many organizations over the last several years and have provided them with electronic media products that both show and tell what they do, why they do it, and who benefits.
In the familiar story, “Stone Soup,” the premise is presented that if everyone contributes something, then no one will go hungry. With the mission of Stone Soup Venture, we intend to make a contribution that will be for the good of all.
