Watch Demo Reel

Video engages audiences, and study after study proves that users prefer it to text. Video sparks emotion and prompts immediate responses.

Streit Productions has more than 20 years of experience creating award-winning documentaries, video shorts, training and educational media. Our guiding mission is to produce “Visual Media For Social Change.” We collaborate with foundations, non-profits, and visionary companies in their efforts to re-imagine the ways they present their message. We help them to expand and promote their efforts to serve our communities. Learn more about Jo Streit >

The ability to motivate constituencies to take a desired action – such as 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

  • All the studies agree, users prefer video. 72% of people said that they’d rather watch a video than read about an organization’s product or service.

  • 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 videos’ impact. Streit Productions excels at offering its clients a long-term visual media strategy that surpasses the traditional focus on creating a single video, because our goal is to aid your entire communications efforts.

We guarantee that 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 benefits your organization now and in the future.

  • Share the copyright and release all unused video footage to you instead of just the finished videos.

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

The digital age has given these organizations a stronger voice with a global reach to tell others directly about their work. Together we can create visual media for social change.”

She sees what is needed and offered me concrete suggestions in a firm but allowing place so I could express myself naturally & effectively. I still use her ideas whenever I perform.”
