    17. 24. Laws of Social Storytelling <ul><li>Be prepared to tell 3 types of stories: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The story of self (org) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The story of us (community) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The story of now (change the world) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ A story communicates fear, hope, and anxiety, and because we </li></ul><ul><li>can feel it, we get the moral not just as a concept, but as a </li></ul><ul><li>teaching of our hearts. That’s the power of story.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Marshall Ganz </li></ul>
    18. 25. Storytelling Tips <ul><li>Keep It Short </li></ul><ul><li>Powerful videos are often under 2 minutes long. The effort you put into keeping it short will go a long way in helping you focus your message. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep It Simple </li></ul><ul><li>Try to focus on one main topic (ie. an event, one person’s story, a lesson, a testimonial). It’s easier to get excited about a video that is focused. </li></ul><ul><li>From our friends at flipvideospotlight.com </li></ul>
    19. 26. Storytelling Tips <ul><li>Be genuine - Viewers want to connect with the work that your organization is doing. Focus on content that is compelling rather than what’s “cool”. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep It Fluid - Beginning-Middle-End: Catch the audience at the beginning and explain what is happening, build emotion in the middle, and come to some sort of resolution at the end. </li></ul>
    20. 27. Storytelling Tips <ul><li>Keep It Moving </li></ul><ul><li>Audio: Video shows the story but don’t forget the importance of audio. Audio adds emotion </li></ul><ul><li>Keep It Interesting </li></ul><ul><li>Wide shot - establishes the scene </li></ul><ul><li>Medium shot - gives more intimacy </li></ul><ul><li>Close-up - for emotion and direct connection </li></ul><ul><li>Extreme close-up - very intimate, emotional effect. </li></ul>
    21. 28. Storytelling With Video <ul><li>Above all, tell a story </li></ul><ul><li>Show it visually </li></ul><ul><li>Give your viewers the right web tools (portability) </li></ul><ul><li>Sound is critical </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare a script and get feedback </li></ul>
    22. 29. Broadcast Events
    23. 30.

    24. 31. Staff Produced
    25. 32.

    26. 33. Documentary
    27. 34.

    28. 35. Public Service Announcement
    29. 36. Public Service Announcement <ul><li>Make PSAs accessible online on YouTube </li></ul><ul><li>Reverse model: create PSA and publish online – raise funds to get it aired on TV </li></ul>
    30. 37. Animation / Typography Watch Video
    31. 38. Animation / Typography <ul><li>Very popular style (use with caution) </li></ul><ul><li>Great example is Girl Effect – success is in framing the problem in simple terms </li></ul><ul><li>Distill the story through words and music </li></ul><ul><li>Method to bring important to speeches to life </li></ul>
    32. 39. Personalized Video Watch Video
    33. 40. Personalized Video <ul><li>Novelty and personalization increases probability viewer will pass along </li></ul><ul><li>Best for awareness building (broad audience) or peer-to-peer fundraising (niche audience) </li></ul><ul><li>Creates interactive opportunity – sharing or donating </li></ul><ul><li>ClipCall takes it to the next level with phone integration </li></ul>
