Motivating constituencies to take a desired action – such as call, donate, volunteer, engage with elected officials, learn new material, and/or share a link on social media platforms – is central to your organization’s success. We work together to help you tell the stories that best represent who you are and bring your organization’s mission and values to life.

… to enhance your entire communications plan

  • Research shows the power of video. 72% of people said that they’d rather watch a video to learn about an organization’s product or service than read about it.

  • Videos generate 1200% more social media shares than text and images combined.

  • 80% of users can recall a video that they watched in the past month.

But the cost, time, and know-how needed to produce videos are often barriers to organizations that could benefit most from its impact. Streit Productions excels at collaborating with clients to provide a long-term visual media strategy that surpasses the traditional approach of creating a single video. We can improve your entire communications efforts while saving you time and money.

Our approach offers long-term value and will:

  • Increase the amount of useable digital content your organization gets from a single video production, including multiple videos, still photos, audio, and even text.

  • Create and manage an archival media library that your organization can use now and in the future.

  • Share the copyright and all of the video footage thats recorded instead of just the final videos.

  • Provide creative ideas on how to leverage these digital assets for use on your organization’s website, printed materials, and more…
