I help people learn how to sell their message by building an audience through storytelling. It's the 'why' in you that convinces others of the value in 'what' you are saying and selling. Drones are the smartest and newest way to communicate and grow an audience fast.
This is my why. I was a BBC and newspaper journalist for 20 years. Talking to people about their problem; framing their problem in a story and then publishing. The rewarding part was finding a potential solution and then packaging that inside a campaign. You know the sort of thing: Save Our Greenbelt; Stop the Smells; Kill Your Speed.
We worked to a formula: who? did what? where? when and why? Until traditional news withered on the vine of faster, free digital content. It was hard coming to terms with that at first. So I tried to break down what I valued most about my trade – and what I was good at. Because I didn't want to retrain as a tree surgeon, an IT consultant or a postie.
It took some time, but it came down to this. My professional successes as a story teller were built on a single platform – not Youtube, LinkedIn or Facebook, but images. And actually... over time, it dawned that digital media hadn't changed the one thing that was still most important to solving problems and telling stories: great images.
So now I work with 3D drone images, video editing and immersive story telling. Rather than pining for print campaigns, I specialise in producing and telling people's stories using drone footage, scanners and gimbles, framed by images inside promos, ads and campaigns – combined with... yep, your own favourite social media channels.
I still do the stuff I've always loved most: still ask lots of questions; still get to hear people's stories; still get to fix people's problems around flagging campaigns or poor sales. But I do that now by injecting a combination of the old story telling skills, with incredible 3D and digital images, plastered over social media to amplify the story off the virtual page.
A video example will be landing here soon. Until then, take a look at the video below. It's not the greatest story but the images are working well. Together – you, your team and me – we'll be able to do something even better that.
Story telling, images and entertainment – this is how we will build your audience
