We produced this video as a development tool to help raise donations for Sandy Cove's "Operation Oasis" in Maryland. This program is designed to help military families reconnect after a recent deployment at "NO" cost! This video is meant to be a simple testimonial from one family who's lives have been affected by this program. Most of the effort in producing this video was done in the interview process, and is a great case study of how important it is to build relationship with those being interviewed.
The video has proven to be very effective has been very effective in telling this story and has been used repeatedly on the Sandy Cove Web-site as well as an introduction / set-up tool for personal appearance announcements regarding the program.

Today's google generation...
It should come as no surprise to you that todays google generation is much more likely to watch a video than they are to read. With constant messages coming at us now by the mili-second, its no wonder that taking time to actually engage long enough to read something, is becoming a character quality of the previous generation. Therefore, we believe video is one of the best ways to help tell your story, capture your own individual uniqueness, and engage new potential fans long enough for them to not only read the details of your mission and story, but become life long, true ministry partners! Even simple video's that are testimonial driven and in the voice of your true fans, are very effective at this. We will work tirelessly with you, to find and capture these stories to use as fuel in your marketing engine!
