How we Scale your story
We have a conversation to better understand the mission of your organization, from your perspective. We want to understand your story and vision for sharing it.
Based on our collaboration, we develop a detailed work plan tailored to your organization or project's needs.
We are experienced photographers and cinematographers who use premium equipment to thoughtfully capture your story in beautiful images.
We craft a compelling narrative through documentary-style film or photos, collaborating with you during the process to ensure your story is told accurately with maximum impact.
After multiple revisions we add the final details, including custom musical scoring, enhanced coloring, detailed captions and animated graphics.
We make sure your story engages people, and can help you use social media to bring attention to your mission.
We have appreciated working with Scale Storytelling immensely. Our project is a complicated mix of agricultural activities spread out over a large portion of Nigeria. We needed an organization that could capture in video and photography our work: strategies, objectives, beneficiaries, and results. Scale Storytelling did this perfectly. Not only were we impressed by the beautiful quality of their results but also their flexibility in working through ideas and approaches to be sure that they were capturing what is needed and translating it into a coherent and comprehensive media package. They were always highly professional in production and post-production and met every deadline.
Our experiences with Scale Storytelling have been truly remarkable. They provide concierge-level consultation and customer service, unbelievable on-the-ground support while photographing/filming in high-stress and low-resource environments, and a final product that was breathtaking. Moreover, they do all of this in a manner that is affordable. I cannot imagine a more positive experience.
“Scale Storytelling gives equal weight to the bigger picture and the details; they appreciate the value of having a range of voices and points of view informing the narrative, and their technical expertise in filming, interviewing and post-production is excellent. They bring the complete package with wonderful original soundtracks and elegant graphics, and most of all their own kindness and professionalism comes through in their productions because they make each person comfortable to truly express themselves. I cannot more highly recommend Scale Storytelling for their beautiful work.”
Alex Lancial and Jim Tuttle are extraordinary storytellers on every front. They are journalists who use their visual talents, incredible creativity and dogged reporting to develop first class work – so much so that I have hired them twice. More importantly, they are exceptional people with unquestionable integrity.
“The photos have changed the way we market our organization. I have carried a photo book (complete with 20 photos) to all of my meetings with donors, government officials, and the like. In every single one, the photo book has caught the person’s eye and taken them from minimal interest to an immediate desire to learn more about our Academy.”
