Video & Digital Stories

Videography is a powerful way to document experiences, showcase impact, and celebrate people making change. Compelling storytelling together with technical know-how on capturing insightful interviews and stunning visuals result in imapactful videos that can shared with donors, as community feedback, and at high level meetings – as well as cut up for social media clips.

We also work with communities to tell their own stories through participatory digital storytelling, which combines audio narration with visual images, facilitating people to tell their own stories in video format.

Passo a Passo: - Speaking out on landmines

Landmine survivors in Mozambique shared how landmines impacted their lives, to continue raising awareness. Since many of the most affected areas are away from urban centres, these views and voices are mostly forgotten. The collected stories were produced into short personal narratives appropriate for radio, and audio-visual digital stories for training and advocacy.
