Before stories are told. They're built.

Once upon a time, you had a breakthrough idea - for a campaign, an organization or a new social enterprise. But your idea could only change the world if people knew about it.

 

So one day you emailed us.

 

Together we built the story of your idea through video, audio, multimedia or something new. And we made sure it reached the people who needed it most.

Consult and conspire.

We produce creative content and design impact strategies for campaigns, nonprofits, NGOs and social enterprises that want to change the world.

 

We're not just consultants - we are co-conspirators in the effort to build and tell stories for and with our clients.

Sometimes video. Most times more.

Making great videos is a big part of what we do. But getting those videos in front of the right people takes a solid strategy, community building, and creative content production of all kinds. Check out some of the stories we helped our clients build below.

Education is Power

Secondary schools charge as much as $400 for tuition in Kenya and Tanzania, countries where the average family income is only about $2 per day. 

 

Education is Power works to raise money to pay tuition for students who commit to giving back to their communities. But that's not all...

EIP works with Canadian students to help raise the funds. But rather than just contributing to helping students "over there," Canadians meet their East African peers via videochat.

 

Block by Block helped design an interactive project, in which students on both sides of the exchange took photos of their daily lives and shared them live during the chat.

Block by Block produced this video to make other schools aware of Education is Power's programs and fundraisers.

Boreal Conservation

Canada's Boreal Forest is the largest intact forest left on Earth - a planet which has lost 80% of its old-growth forest.

 

Indigenous communities that call the forest home are leading efforts to conserve and protect the water, air, animals and cultural heritage threatened by large scale industrial development.

 

Yet many Canadians, and even more Earthlings, don't know anything about the Boreal or why it's so important to the health of the planet. That's where the social media channels for Boreal Conservation come in.

Block by Block designed a strategy to reach Canadian citizens, policymakers, and journalists through customized creative content. Through partnerships with organizations representing Indigenous Peoples, scientists, and outdoors enthusiasts, we build stories that make the case for large scale conservation.

TRAININGS & WORKSHOPS

Mission-Driven Videos

As the internet becomes more crowded with content, especially videos, how do the ideas that really matter get through the noise? When you get people's attention, how do you make sure they understand your mission, your issues, and how they can take action to be a part of your movement?

 

That's what we cover in our presentation on making mission-driven videos. Even better, we show you how anyone - anyone! - can make a mission-driven that makes an impact.
