A Rising Tide of Change
Imagine a time when the vast, blue expanse of the ocean remained a total mystery, its depths unexplored, its creatures unknown. Now, imagine a group of young, passionate individuals, eager to unravel these mysteries and willing to become stewards of the ocean. This was the reality for Ocean First’s TIDES Program, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring youth in the field of ocean conservation.
Despite their noble mission, they faced a challenge. How could they reach more young people, ignite their passion for marine science, and grow their program? The answer came in the form of conscious marketing through documentary production, with the help of New Focus Films.
New Focus Films, a video production company with a passion for nature conservation, partnered with Ocean First’s TIDES Program to create a captivating documentary series called “A Rising Tide”. The series followed the journey of several teens as they dove into the world of marine science, exploring the ocean’s depths and working to protect its inhabitants.
This is the transformative power of conscious marketing through documentary production. It’s not just about spreading a message; it’s about inspiring action, fostering change, and making a real-world impact. And this is the magic that New Focus Films brings to every project.
What is Conscious Marketing and Why Does it Matter?
Conscious marketing is a strategy that focuses on promoting products, services, or messages that align with the values and beliefs of your target audience. It’s about making a positive impact on the world, not just making a profit. And it’s more important than ever.
Documentary production plays a crucial role in conscious marketing. It allows organizations to tell their stories in a compelling, authentic way. It’s not about selling; it’s about sharing, educating, and inspiring. And it’s a powerful way to connect with a broad audience on a deep, emotional level.
The How and Where of Conscious Marketing
So, how do you use documentary production to market your mission-driven message?
Here are some key steps:
Identify Your Story:
What is the core message you want to share? What is the story behind your mission?
Find the Right Partner:
Look for a video production company that shares your values and understands your vision. New Focus Films, for example, has a passion for sustainability and nature conservation, and a mission for creating impactful, change-driven documentaries.
Create your film:
Work with your partner to create a short, branded documentary that tells your story in a compelling way.
Promote Your Film:
Use social media, your website, email marketing, and other channels to get your film in front of as many people as possible.
As for where to market your film, the world is your oyster. Online platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok are excellent places to start. But also consider film festivals, community events, and partnerships with like-minded organizations.
Frequently Asked Questions
About Conscious Marketing and Documentary Production
Q: How long should our documentary be?
A: There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this. It depends on your story, your audience, and your budget. However, short films (under 20 minutes) tend to be more engaging and shareable.
Q: How much does it cost to produce a documentary?
A: The cost can vary widely depending on the scope of the project. Just remember that this is an investment in your mission. The right documentary can have a significant return on investment in terms of awareness, support, and impact. We’ve had several non-profits scoff at spending a few thousand dollars for a project that could easily help raise millions. Don’t be that guy!
Q: Can we really reach a broad audience with a documentary?
A: Absolutely! With the right promotion strategy, a documentary can reach millions of people around the world. And when it’s a well-planned model of conscious marketing, it’s likely to resonate deeply with those who see it.
