Overview

Video has the power, unlike any other medium, to connect with your audience. This session will help you start creating your most compelling videos. You will learn several skills: practical storytelling techniques; how to find your most compelling stories; how to draw out stories on camera by combining journalism and counseling theories; and most importantly, how to move your audience from insight to action.

Presenters

Telling stories with authenticity and helping people make sense of their stories are two of the most important things to Mike and Kristin Sukraw. Video just happens to be the medium they chose as a vehicle for their passion! With a degree in Business Administration, Mike started Reliant Studios while still in college, winning several student awards for film and production. Kristin has her Master’s in Counseling and spent five years working in private practice before taking the leap into Reliant full-time in 2012. They now travel the country with the Reliant team, helping organizations discover and share their stories with the world through video in a way that helps them achieve specific results. Clients include Imagine Dragons’ Tyler Robinson Foundation, Lincoln Industries and Homes for Our Troops.
