Interested in a video interview?

Built for you

Our intent is to create authentic news stories that build awareness for individuals and organizations through dynamic video interviews.

Business challenges we’ve heard:

“We have these messages to share, but our stories aren’t getting picked up by traditional news outlets.”


“How can I build more awareness about my business?”


“How can we more easily share our success, our purpose, our perspectives, our new products and services, or our expertise?

The opportunity

We use our team of video producers, writers, and designers to create Narrative News feature pieces about YOU. Your original video interview (and written editorial story) can easily be re-shared and tagged across social media, posted on websites, and embedded in e-newsletters, etc.

About our host

Michelle Burgess is a seasoned media expert that has worked extensively on strategic storytelling for the past 20 years across all mediums. These include TV, podcasts, video interviews, written interviews, and editorial features.

It’s her easy-going conversational style that allows for our video interviews to feel organic and, professional, and makes our interviewees feel comfortable and at ease.

And it’s her expertise in marketing and communications that can help YOUR business elevate and garner awareness for your target audience.
