Millennium Fellowship Project: Social Impact Video
The project will source a social enterprise in their local community, who couldn't otherwise afford to produce professional-quality promotional video content. The team will spend time with them and gain insight into what they do, then they will plan, film and edit a video that explains the story and goals of the organisation. This can then be distributed on their social media/website to raise awareness and attract the attention of potential donors/volunteers.
The project team has created video content for social enterprises before, but this time they want to increase their impact. They are aiming for a minimum of 20 shares and 200 likes on the original Facebook post. For an up-and-coming social enterprise, this amount of engagement should allow for a sizable increase in their audience. Other effects will include an increase in: followers of the organisation page; donations/volunteers; website/social media page clicks.
