Please let us make a video for you. If you are seeking a creative way to reach new audiences, contact us at Pedelty@umn.edu.
Watch our award winning videos on the Ecosong Videos page for samples of our recent work. Those are just a few examples of what we can do. Your music video and campaign will be tailored to your organizational goals, subject, and resources. Below you can read more about our creative process and costs.
Praise from our Community Partners
+ Initial Meeting
It all starts with a scoping meeting. During our INITIAL MEETING we ask you about your organization's central issue(s), goals, and membership. Rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach, we craft a message and media that might creatively reach new audiences and fullfill unmet objectives.
+ Plan and Storyboard
Based on the above discussion and additional research, we craft a PLAN AND STORYBOARD to put before your leadership, staff, and board, who then offer their feedback and ideas.
+ Final Pitch
We literally go back to the drawing board and revise for a FINAL PITCH MEETING, combining our strengths and the ideas offered at the storyboard session.
If the plan of action is approved, we use a collaborative process and creative autonomy to PRODUCE AN ORIGINAL SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO, working within project parameters as approved by your organization at the final pitch meeting. We deliver the final product by the contracted deadline. In addition to our internal resources and talent, we involve organization and community members whenever possible, especially as on-screen talent.
+ Communication Campaign
After the video is completed, we assist your organization with a follow-up COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN and launch plan to help maximize viewership and impact. At time of launch our work is considered complete for purposes of contract, but we never consider this a simple "hand off." We continue to promote the video via our website, Youtube, Vimeo, media contact, and organizational listservs, Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms. We have a creative stake and genuine concern in the success of your project, because it is ours as well. We are not private contractors, but instead public collaborators.
