From Soup to Nuts: Creating Powerful Films at Any Budget


Video has become one of the most powerful storytelling mediums on the internet and one of the most effective ways a nonprofit can communicate its message. Although the power of video is difficult to deny, creating a film that has the desired impact can be a challenge.

From managing budgets to understanding the production process, we’ll aim to give attendees a full understanding of the tools they need to create a great video.

We’ll hear from an experienced video producer who will talk through the stages of production, the key elements needed to create a powerful film, and the costs and methods associated with creating different kinds of nonprofit films.

We’ll also hear from a nonprofit multimedia specialist who has been successful in creating effective, rapid-response video with a lower budget.

Both speakers will also discuss distribution opportunities and ways that you can get your film seen for little to no cost.

Learning Outcomes
