StoryNow is a team of award-winning filmmakers, skilled consultants, and technology experts are here to help you make storytelling your superpower.

StoryNow Vision

StoryNow emboldens and equips organizations to use the power of video storytelling to advance their mission. We provide consulting, training and technology so great socially-responsible companies, nonprofits, and government agencies can use video storytelling to raise funds, increase revenue, inspire volunteers and employees, and boost the wellbeing of those they serve.

We believe video storytelling—used strategically–fuels transformation. Video stories can cut through the clutter of distraction, capture people’s attention and motivate them to give, buy, empathize and change. We believe the very act of telling your story on video can promote healing and growth. We are living in the Story Economy and video stories are the currency of the day. We desire to help those doing good maximize this asset.

She has also directed video stories on refugees in the Middle East and Europe, the hidden homeless in the US and an award-winning short documentary series on Cuban entrepreneurs.
