Visual Storytelling

People remember 80% of what they see, but only 20% of what they read.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

With advancements in technology on our social platforms, we are quickly moving towards film as the strongest visual medium (think Facebook Live, Instagram Stories).

Why? Because videos are so darn compelling. 

Our world is built on stories and storytelling; this is of course how our earliest ancestors passed down knowledge to survive. Visual Storytelling is simply the use of photography and video to share those stories. It can of course be enhanced with music and voice overs. 

So I've found ourselves in this beautiful sweet spot, of sharing the most important stories that make you who you are - the story of your brand or your family - through creative, natural and honest film making and photography. And that, my friends, is Visual Storytelling.


The most exciting thing to me about film is that there's no rules on how we tell the story. We can use spoken words, or we can not. We can use written words, or we can not. We can move fast or take our time, and we can share it all or save it for the imagination. The only thing I know for sure when I begin to film and edit a video is that we will make you feel something. And that is the greatest gift I can give.

Every shot brings tears to our eyes and a smile to our faces. This film is something we will hold dear for years to come and is now one our most precious possessions. We would *highly* recommend The Refuge Collective for any film you need. Her films are magic, telling a story through beautiful details. She is truly a gifted professional.
